It may surprise you to know that even Professional Organizers can have packrat tendencies. I am one of those organizers.
My packrat tendencies are mainly with paper but include other items as well. Over the years, I have learned how to let go of things. This wasn’t easy at first but as I continually worked on letting go, it has gotten easier and easier over time.
I encourage anyone with packrat tendencies to let go.
