I'm a Pack Rat

I have to admit it. I have too much stuff. Instead of throwing thing away, I hoard them...magazines, books, knick knacks, STUFF! I hold on to all my Writer's Digest books. Those articles are good. I may need to refer to one someday. I have all my RWRs. Those areticles are good. I may need to refer to one someday. I have a bowl of potpouri sitting on my desk. It's pretty, but it takes up space. However, there is nothing wrong with it, so I may use it someday. You should see my three, no make that four, cups of pens. Pens from other authors, banks, family members, different colored pens, markers, highlighters. Ack!!!

I'm hopeless.

My files drawers? Stuffed full of stuff that I rarely refer to. What to do?

I guess I need to do some spring housecleaning in my office.

Am I alone in this? Please tell me I have other kindred pack rat friends. Anyone have a solution to overcome this pack rat tendency? Leave a comment on my blog to be entered in a drawing to win a free pen to add to your STUFF!

Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Chris and I'm a pack rat. There, I said it. I'm a pen-klepto. Must be the writer in me. I have a collection of pens I've swiped just because they wrote well when I last used them. Whew, I feel better now that I got that off my chest.

I'm glad you confessed Chris. Now I know I'm not the only writing pack rat! Pens. Aren't they wonderful things? I'm thinking about doing some long-hand writing today just to use my favorite pen, which, by the way, I did not swipe! LOL!
