We all like to hold on to some things, but they don’t necessarily have to take up residence in our home. Decluttering, however, can be a difficult art to master.
What does hoarding mean?
Hoarding and clutter are two very different things. The NHS describes hoarding as a disorder where someone acquires excessive quantities of items and chaotically stores them. It is considered to be a significant problem if the large quantities of items interfere with everyday life or cause distress. Clutter, in contrast, is just mess. The house can be moved around in and be tidied up without any emotional ramifications.
