When I moved, I realized just how much of a hoarder that I am. Sarah will tell you. I had approximately six boxes filled with papers, books, brochures, sentimental objects (This is from when he gave me a packet of M&Ms. Must save.) And more. Way more. Guilt, apparently, is a motivating factor in this kind of behavior: Why People Hoard.
Eventually I want to create an enormous filing system of everything, like Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler: “Do you see those filing cabinets along the wall? Those are my secrets…. and I don’t want my files messed up or placed out of order. They’re in a special order that makes sense only to me.”
