Stockpiling vs. Hoarding

I keep hearing people say that couponers or stockpilers are "hoarders".  Well if that's what you believe, I'm here to educate you on the difference between the two.

A hoarder's home is filthy, dirty, and they collect things that have no value, and for no reason.  This is what a hoarder's home looks like:


  1. LOVE'T .. you have everything so neat and orderly.Good job on the awesome deals you find :D

  2. Well there is a line that some couponers cross - ie the ones who buy hundreds of diapers for themselves and they don't have kids, or buy 100's of bottles of mustard because its was a $.01 and they don't use it but they keep it... that is a couponer-hoarder.

    Other than that I agree with you! :)

  3. I have Major stockpile envy... i want 1... there are 7 in the house 3 kids and 1 hubby who is now mentally and physically handicapped i have very little time to hunt for the great deals you have reach your level with my schedule is not possible so i will be content seeing what you gather and dream it was me lol take care.

  4. Well said. There is no way a couponer (extreme or otherwise) could ever be a hoarder. I'm pretty certain the OCD and organizational skills would not permit hoarding. lol
