When You Are Bored Do You Hoard?

Get ready for an It's Rhyme Time Edition of Hoarders! We have no borders. We will go anywhere to show you a hoarding lair. So what if we had to peep. We will just blame that on that Tom creep.


We went to a certain house,
There was not even a mouse.
But there were books by the ton.
None from Pat, so we knocked them over and away we did run.


Another house nearby,
Was owned by a guy.
Can't you tell?
A box hoarder isn't swell.


We stopped by Betsy's too.
 It seems her kitty crowd grew.
We figured we might get lost there,
Plus we already have plenty of cat hair.


75 tons of clothes,
Sure can cause woes.
Who the heck hoards all of that?
We quickly decided to scat.


We also stopped by Mary's place.
We quickly got a frown on our face.
Each mutt tried to sniff our butt.
Who knew she had such a hoarding hut?


Next was just this!
This did not cause bliss.
 A hoarder who hoards this,
Needs to burn it down and hiss.


Stuff animals galore,
Were hoarded away at this shore.
That is quite the pile.
I bet they can stretch a mile.


More and more books.
Gave them all quick looks,
And none of Pat's once again,
So we burned down this den.


Stopped by Mary Kirkland's place.
It gave us a happy face.
Snacks on the go,
The cat's belly hung low.


This worked for our OCD.
It was all neat and tidy.
Don't you just want to knock them down?
But you might make that hoarder frown.

So there was our hoarders display for today as we investigated each bay. Who could the others be? We won't tell at our sea. The clothes may be the ninja wannabe though. His naked clones are scary after all as they stand in a row. At least no one hoarded singing bass as that would surely annoy my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

      So why really save
      Maybe they did it one by one
      Instead of by a ton

  5. LOL Thankfully I don't actually have that many rats. I think my hubby might have a fit if I did. After seeing all those books I no longer feel bad. I have several bookshelves that are over flowing but nothing like that.

  11. I used to laugh at a hoarders show
    I thought their intellect a little low
    Three houses stuff I put in one
    The books would easy weigh a ton
    A hoarder I must surely be
    For over them no one could see

      You blocked out the sun

  16. Hoarding sometimes
    goes with work type,

    1. Sometimes it can go that way
      Leading to one thing at ones bay

  17. In my opinion, it's not hoarding if the items are part of actual collections of... whatever... and not just stuff which was never thrown away. Plus, there should be some semblance of organization, as well. Having said that, some of these are scary.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. True, if it is a collection it may not be
      Unless you collect 1000 things and call it a collection of each at ones sea
      Then that may be hoarding a touch
      And yeah organization is needed much

      Delete
    2. fox is sounding a little defensive! ha.

      Delete
    3. That he is indeed
      Hoarding at his feed?

      Delete
    4. could be,
      calling it a collection, with glee!
      haah.

      Delete
    5. I should probably add that this is just a tease
      in case the fox would read and not be pleased!
      If he does, I'll be out of luck!
      I'll have to try to explain, run and duck!
      lol....

  27. Hoarders are always creepily interesting. Too bad their homes are all festering. I used to watch that show. It made me sad, though. Seeing stuff like that makes me want to clean. Definitely helps me keep my own piles lean.

  28. For some people, it's too darned tough
    To separate from any of their stuff.
    They pile up more and more and even more
    Until they've got more stuff than the local store.

  37. I kinda like the last picture. It looked like Andy Warhol art.

    The cat pictures seriously disturbed me...it reminded me of the Animal Cops episodes, where they find a cat hoarder who has 237 cats in his little tiny house and the poor man says, "I just had two cats, I don't know what happened..."

    The exception to all this is books. There is no such thing as too many books. A lot of books is just a library. :)

  39. I don't get the hoarding addiction. How could they possibly know what is in every box and pile? My youngest daughter will probably be a hoarder. She refuses to get rid of anything. I sneak into her room each week and take a few things to the trash that I know she won't miss.
