Do you collect or hoard things?

Do you collect or hoard things?

Bryan Bale: I collect CDs, DVDs and books. I’ve been called a pack rat, because I have a hard time letting go of something that I may never be able to replace.

Matt Engle: City Weekly pens somehow seem to accumulate in my glove box.

Heidi Weggeland: I have a paper fetish. I collect different types and weights of paper. I can go into a stationery store or scrapbooking store for hours at a time. I can never get enough paper. It’s paper madness!

Rachel Scott: I used to hoard Star Trek: The Next Generation memorabilia. I have autographed pictures (yes, I went to conventions), a communicator, a phaser, a tricorder, a miniature Enterprise, and all the Star Trek action figures, even Wesley Crusher, who we all love to hate! Yes, I am a total square.

Leo Dirr: I own an extensive collection of Garbage Pail Kids. In my youth, I thought they looked cool and they made me laugh. I keep them today to remind me how silly I was as a kid.

Julie Erickson: Parking tickets. I guess, deep down, I hate following the rules, but I would probably need to seek help from a professional to get an exact reason.

Derek Carlisle: I am the proud holder of the entire state quarter collection. I’m pretty sure no one else has this and I’m looking to retire on the return.

Jackie Briggs: I collect shot glasses, but I don’t really care to display them, so I just have this insane amount of small glasses I use for drinking. It’s the biggest bitch to get my eight ounces of water in.
