While growing up, most of us are taught the value of saving: saving money, saving items we might need in the future, saving special collections of things like coins, dolls, rare books, etc. However, sometimes, the desire to save goes awry. There are people who develop an illness where they must save items that have no purpose or value such as old newspapers and magazines, lists, old notes, ties for garbage bags, strings, bottle caps, socks without a mate, torn clothing, etc. In fact, approximately 600,000 to 1.2 million people suffer from a form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, called Compulsive Hoarding. This illness can literally invade a person’s life, crowding them out of their living space and affecting social relationships, health, and career.
