I don't know if it's prevalent but it's obvious why it happens in my flat.It's too cramped.Take my kitchen for instance.It looks like the " white goods" section of Comet.So there's a microwave,two dryers,two fridge freezers,a cooker and soon to be two dishwashers.There's even a bookcase thrown in for good measure.It's so crowded the two pedal bins have took pride of place in the middle of the lino.

Then there's my clothes jostling for space with folders in a closet where the combi heater should have solitude.But Exhibit A is definetly my bedroom.There's a twin to the other bookcase,an other closet where clothes are not supposed to hang,some more books arranged like a Jenga tower and a wardrobe with loads of strange bedfellows. Like boxers and a dictionary.For a laugh I placed a sticker on it that said "stretch for comfort".As if my socks will get a chance to unwound.I'll have to say the washroom is the less cluttered place in the flat.Because all the toiletries are vying for attention with my telly.

I'm not what you call a serious hoarder though.
huh!

How did human hoarding evolve?

I once knew a MAJOR hoarder years ago when I was a kid. I snooped around her garage.

She even kept bent nails in a garage cabinet, every screw, plastic lids, etc...

This was NOT for recyclying. I asked my mom about it and she said she hardly threw out anything, and put them in drawers.

She also had boxes full of useless crap stacked, and stacked, and stacked.

She was a nice person though.

Was I speaking double dutch?

I was just illustrating a point that it dosn't necessary have to be OCD that's the root of the hoarding problem.There dosn't have to be a pscyological  reason for every little aspect of human nature.Which is why I clearly illustrated a complete and utter issue with space and the lack thereof.But you never know when you might need these items that are clearly taking half the room up when you don't even realise you need them in the first place.That newspaper from a few days ago might advertise a job offer that you originally declined but you need the telephone number because you've hit a stumbling block with the one you applied for on the day you bought the paper.

Though there are examples that reek of OCD where the occupant is drowning in a sea of waste in a very spacious house.Though it could said that some of this stuff might have sentimental value.My visual picture of OCD despite hoarding being a stonewall example in some cases is guys arranging their toothbrushes by the colours of the rainbow.
