Default Too many boxes

I was in Morrisons earlier today and saw plastic boxes with lids. I thought they look handy. I didn't buy them. But when I got home I thought they would do to store things away and they could stack on top of each other.

So back down to Morrison's I head. This time all the lids are missing. I feel a right tit going about Morrisonjs with an empty cart so I picks up two of them and take them to the check out. The women in front lets me in as I have only the two items. But when I get served I say - "where are the lids for these?"

She puts on her flashing light but nobody appears to help her. So I let the woman back in again. And the next person. Eventually someone comes to help. For an SA person I feel myself getting hotter and hotter.

I'm beginning to ramble. So I empty cardboard boxes and use the plastic boxes instead. But why have I stored the cardboard boxes. Why can't I throw things out?

Because they may become useful some day. Like everything else I keep. Old toothbrushes - one day I'll be glad I kept them.

Seriously, I think it's a security thing.

It'll be there for if you need it.

I think a lot of anxious people are hoarders. It certainly isn't compulsory to the condition but I reckon it's common.

That's fair enough. Have you kept anything that couldn't possibly be useful?

Sounds like a bit of an obsessional thing, like a form of OCD.

If you agitate the carton that I keep the jelly things in then it releases a nice smell. The yellow bread things I stopped keeping - once I filled both doors of my kitchen cabinbet with them.

Go on - tell them I keep the lids off the top of soup tins etc.
And the wooden lolly pop sticks.
I even keep the envelopes when you send me a birthday card or christmas card. And the cards of course.
