I got to visit my grandmother this weekend.
She is a pack rat.
A pack rat is defined as a person who collects or hoards especially unneeded items.
The problem is she has passed down this trait to my dad. (My mom received the trait none the less from her side of the family as well.)
So therefore I have the double dominant Pack Rat gene.
I have to fight against it. It's due to the fact that we see those "unneeded items" as great treasures that may be needed in the future. If we could categorize them as "unneeded items" we'd more than likely get rid of them.
So hopefully we'll be able to get rid of some "unneeded" stuff during this move. We plan on having a yard sale, but we are hoping to sell our house first. That way we'll be able to put an offer on a house up there and see exactly how much space we'll have. We maybe selling a lot of furniture, or we maybe selling a little furniture. We'll just have to wait and see.
