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!
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.

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. :)
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.
