Are you a pack rat?

You’re not alone.

We’ve grown into a nation full of, well… stuff.  With no place to put it, no way to organize it.  We mean to, but we just have trouble doing it.

Here are the TEN THINGS PEOPLE HAVE THE MOST TROUBLE THROWING AWAY:

  1. mail
  2. newspapers/magazines
  3. containers
  4. clothing
  5. food
  6. books
  7. notes/lists
  8. collectibles
  9. broken/nonworking items
  10. garbage

Some other clutter statistics:

  • Are you a neat freak?  If you make $35,000 or less, than 2-out-of-3 Americans agree with you.  If you make more than $75,000, then count yourself as 1-in-10.
  • According to a 2005 Rubbermaid survey, American women would rather organize their closets than lose weight.
  • 1 in 3 Ikea customers would rather clean their closets than have sex.
  • Men who don’t organize their sock drawer have sex 3 times more a month than men who do.
