View Full Version : List: What kind of Pack Rat are you?

10-10-2011, 10:43 PM
It is my belief that everyone is a type of Pack Rat. There's something that you obsessively hoard and love. Something that you've a huge collection of.

So one day I realized I was an Artbook Pack Rat. Or, my credit card did, but I have a job so I can still fund my addiction! Ha ha. Ha.

(Science update!: Packrats are nest builders. They use plant material like branches, twigs, sticks, and other available debris. Getting into everything from attics to car engines, stealing their ‘treasures’, damaging electrical wiring and creating general noisy havoc can easily cause them to become a nuisance! Source from Wikipedia! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packrat)

I'll update this list as I go, but I'm fairly certain everyone is at least one kind of Pack Rat. You can be more than one Pack Rat type.

As far as I can tell I'm not a pack rat....
I try to get rid of things as soon as I don't need them.
This will take me a a while....

10-10-2011, 10:52 PM
Muahahaha... you are now a closet pack rat until you remember something you like to hoard! >:D

10-10-2011, 10:55 PM

Oh I know Masks
I hoard masks

10-10-2011, 11:03 PM
I hoard everything... no joke. Some times I pick stuffs on street just because I like how they look.

10-10-2011, 11:17 PM
I used to do that until I realized that my room looked like it belonged on Hoarders.

I've been collecting pig related items ever since I was about two years old. I also like collecting childhood art. I have a scrapbook full of some of my old drawings and drawings that my siblings have made for me. Looking through it makes me smile. :)

Edit: Socks. I also. love. socks.

PIG RELATED pack rat! *snerfchokelaughter* S... sorry, I just had to put that down.

I hoard anime. It only takes up hard drive space, but it's still space, right?

Honestly though I'll download a tonne of anime and it'll take me forever to watch all of it because I DLed like 20 seasons. I also keep all of the best quality stuff on external hard drives. I'm also starting to hoard books as well. I have prolly around 500 on one bookshelf, all stuffed in. I also have a tonne of clothes. I'm p. bad with this stuff.

10-10-2011, 11:32 PM
I have to add, I'm a clean hoarder. I hoard a lot of stuffs, but everything is in order.

10-10-2011, 11:58 PM
I hoard art, lots of different art. Childhood art, masks, sculptors, but mostly masks.
I have
2 Cat masks
1 purple masquerade mask handcrafted from Italy
1 joker’s mask (also from Italy)
1 sun and moon mask (again from Italy)
And 1 bowl of noodles mask (um... don't ask)

I feel extremely guilty now for some reason.

Seems my work here is finished.

I jk, I was a weird child. Apparently when I was a kid my life's ambition was to become a dung beetle. Speaking of which, I just found my bug collection. Maybe I'll photograph it and post it up.

Not yet.

10-11-2011, 01:08 AM
If something looks cool I'll grab it or buy it or whatever, but that's about it. I don't think I hoard anything in particular.

10-11-2011, 01:10 AM

I also collect pennies. A few Canadian ones keep infiltrating my box somhow.....Dok, Tay. Got anything to say about this?

10-11-2011, 03:43 AM
Yeah, I've got zillions of US pennies, get over it. 0: <

10-11-2011, 05:47 AM
I like how Canada and the US is pretty much just one big country

10-12-2011, 07:57 PM
Yeah I have like fifty bucks in Canadian cash lying around. Not sure if I should trade it in, save it for another trip, or store it to tell people about it on occasions such as this.

10-12-2011, 10:28 PM
save it. it will come in handy when we conquer the world.

10-12-2011, 11:00 PM
I have like a million clothes.

10-13-2011, 07:02 PM
I'm a book hoarder (books from fiction, non-fiction, art books, GN's, etc).

I was a video game hoarder (games and systems) but I managed to let go of about half of the stuff I was hoarding so I'm not much of a VG Hoarder any more. I've also shifted to PC and digital gaming nowadays so that's what's keeping it down a bit. :3

10-18-2011, 08:41 AM
Plushies both anime and otherwise cute. I must have over 40.
Teacups. I am obsessed with tea cups X_X

10-18-2011, 02:39 PM
Books and notebooks.

I have over 1000 books in my room alone and I buy a new notebook whenever I'm without one.

10-18-2011, 05:02 PM
My drawlings and also books and pencils

10-19-2011, 09:31 PM
Like Taylour, I too have all my childhood art, dating back to early 2005.
0-0 I also hoard stuffed animals.

11-07-2011, 06:45 PM
I collect blue stuff, i don't know why, i don't even like blue, but now that i look at my room, i can't see anything that's not blue...

11-07-2011, 07:40 PM
Paper of all kinds. Lists, drawings, reciepts, notebooks, etc.
