Wow interesting views. I was brought up a place for everything and everything in its place. And I still do that today as well as touch everything once and my home is beautiful and tidy. Soooo recently I married MR HOARDER again late in life and worked things out. We share our bedroom which is pristine I make the beds. And he has his own bathroom and CAVE the spare bedroom which I hate entering and occasionally tidy which is immediately untidied. I even keep my fridge in order and decided that I love him enough to allow him his mess hidden at the end of the passage. Oh well
