Me today 🙈 📚📚📚 #litsyhumor
We did Secret Santa at work this year. I‘m wearing the gift from my Santa. Methinks she/he knows me pretty well. 😀
A repost from @SW-T !
Today my husband convinced me that we needed a Costco membership. I told him for every $200 he spends, I get a new book. I‘m up one already!
Hoarder: “Books are not dangerous. Books don‘t bite. Books are not snakes.”
A week of binge watching Hoarders and this is the first time I actually want to defend how one of the show‘s subjects is living!! 📚
The amount of books being thrown out in this episode seriously stresses me out!!
I‘ve seen the show on TV and always found it fascinating, this book dives deeper into how people can overcome their tendencies to over-purchase or accumulate too many things. Very fascinating!
I decided I could read more if I tried audiobooks and this one was terrific! I learned a lot that I have already successfully applied. Hey, by the way, glad to discover I am not a hoarder but a book “collector” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I have been listening to the book above on Audible the past few days. According to her assessments, I am not a hoarder. However, I have found it helpful, as she recommends, to consider my relationship with my “things”. What does it mean that seeing the books on my bookshelves and thinking about the future potential of reading all of them resulted in a huge sense of peace and calm for me?
(Yes, these R fiction books in alphabetical order)
When I finally get my library stash under 20 items they gotta go and make these. Enablers. 📚😅📚 #LitsyLovesLibraries
I have to make a confession. I am guilty!! #bookaddict #thestruggleisreal #firstrealproblems
...So my wife @Jen_is_always_reading and i went to Home Depot for hoses and came back with these...🤣📚📚📚
1. I probably buy 2-4 books a month.
2. I would rather go a year with no new books because I have years worth of unread reading material & rice and beans for year would be unbearable!
3. I went to Hilton Head. 🌊
4. I brought back plastic cups from Salty Dog to use at the pool this summer. 🍹
5. High Five to @SMcKeon (I typed in my maiden name to see if anyone had same.)
SORRY I TAGGED THE WRONG JESS IN MY IMAGE! 😳
Saw this on Instagram today. 😂
Saw this online today and just had to put it out there. Sooooooooooo me! It's not hoarding if there's a word for it, right? 😂
I knew there was a word for it! I swear I will get to them all. Eventually.

When you've run out of bookshelf space and decide to get your end table towers in order 😅
It wasn't what I expected going in. I still enjoyed the read. It was more about the WHY of bordering instead of help with hoarding. I am on a minimalism journey so this helped me with what not to do.
Meh. This book covers the topic of compulsive hoarding, but is really written to "clutterers". So the author should have focused on one topic. I found a total of 4 pages helpful for my clutter issues. There is a 5 level "Clutter Continuum". My family falls between 3️⃣Controlled Chaos and 4️⃣Clutter Crisis. My goal is 2️⃣Neat but Dynamic. BTW 1️⃣Clear and Clean is unrealistic for our family. 5️⃣Borderline Hoarding is thankfully not an issue. ✅H
Part 2 of what was waiting for me when I returned home. Details to come
And I don't know where I saved this article at (of course), so here's the rest of the screenshot that I took 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
This book had a lot of good information in it, and I think I'll be able to look at my relationship with my stuff in a different way now. That said, it was kinda dry in sections. Maybe, as I often find in self-help books, it simply went on a little too long. I'm glad I read it, but I don't think I could recommend it.
I am still working my way through this audiobook. I put it down for a while, and now I've picked it back up. I've been listening while I clean. #audiocleaning
Does this look like hoarding? Am I pencil hoarder? Maybe I should take a photo of my writing utensil drawer. ;) I am loving this book! I highly recommend it if you have a tendency to live a cluttered life. This book is great!
This is Audible's deal of the day. I'm enjoying it so far and hoping that it will help me tackle the clutter in my home. The pic is the shoes I'm wearing today. They make me feel pretty. :)
I'm watching an episode of Hoarders and the poor man has a book problem.
I'm having palpitations.
My #guiltypleasure is book hoarding. I often feel bad about going to the library when I have so many unread books at home so I am trying to find a balance. #marchintoreading
April is coming!
Getting ready for #LitsyAtoZ. I decided to combine the 2017 reading challenge with my New Years resolution to actually read the books I already own. Going through all of my storage I was embarrassed to find a lot of duplicate copies. The good part is that weeding them out cleared out space for more books.
I'm lucky enough to have a local library with a well stocked book sale room that's open during library hours. But apparently they're having a MEGA sale next weekend! I have a disgusting number of unread books sitting on my shelves at home (my friends are only half joking when they say I'm a book hoarder) and I should be responsible and not buy more right now. That said, the chances of me missing out on this sale are slim to none 😆
