    I AM NOT A HOARDER -- I AM NOT A HOARDER -- I AM NOT A HOARDER. (despite that these pics really seem to show something very different?) <sigh>

    But whatever. I showed a few pics of my antique dining room table a few months ago here:
    https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/280121-my-dining-room-table-and-chairs

    And for the record that very same table still exists in the very same spot in the house, looking much more like this now.

    ONCE MORE, I repeat -- I AM NOT A HOARDER -- just one who, at the moment/last few months has otherwise been trying to absorb the most manageable/interesting/potentially valuable bits and boxes of stuff from not one, but *TWO* 'estate houses', with the ultimate goal being to attempt to find a way to efficiently liquidate it all. [but for the choicest little bits I'll keep <wink> and this is also in NO WAY intended to be a 'for sale' post...] Oh, and there's *so much more* still remaining in the 2nd of those houses...thankfully I've also been meanwhiles clearing space in my storage locker [see also my recent showings of 'where old organ parts go to die'] because my little house/carport/basement here has become stuffed nearly totally full (not only the dining room btw) of mostly what we'd all call "smalls". The furniture/etc (that I want to either keep or save) still remains to havta go somewhere... <groan>

    If any of y'all have actually ever read my profile, you'd no doubt remember some reference I made therein to "living in my own personal flea market". Good GAWWD but that's never been more true than right now... <headdesk>

    Oh, and if anyone goes looking closely at any of these pics, you'll probably notice at least parts of things showing that I *have* already shown here...my dining room table/etc was already more than half full of "stuff" I otherwise hadn't found proper space/etc for yet, even before I started to bring in all these fresh bins/boxes/piles...

    I AM NOT A HOARDER...I AM NOT A HOARDER...I AM NOT A HOARDER... [rinse, repeat, etc]
    (and now I need a fresh drink before hitting the pillows until whatever tomorrow's craziness turns out to be...)

      I see that it’s all GoodStuff in there
      And I see a Few places to fit more
      It’s nice to be home if you can find it
      Home is where your stuff is

      Of course you are not a hoarder. I can see a small patch of floor in image two. No hoarder would waste all that space.

      I felt oddly overwhelmed just looking at the pictures!

      Minor league hoarder. You still have a looooong way to go before you could be called a hoarder.
      I’m a minor hoarder so I can call it as I see it.
      Someday I”ll get brave and take a few photos of my “stuff”. Good stuff u have! :)

      Whoops Watchsearcher -- you snuck in there with one more kind comment while I went off looking for the George Carlin link. "Overwhelming" is indeed not *nearly* an inappropriate word...pic 4 here (from the opposite angle) actually shows the piles also overtaking my 'living room', none here even begin to show my 'den/computer room', the 'extra bedroom <HA!> my basement space (talk about floor to ceiling down *there*?!) or my carport (and its own 'storage space') which I haven't been able to actually park my truck in for months now...

      But HEY -- no matter how crazy/overwhelming life is for any of us right now for whatever reason(s) -- well, as the old adage kinda goes 'any day spent above ground is better than one spent 6' below it'...?? :-)

      Lol AO!
      I actually find the biggest job ever is sorting and curating stuff, no matter what it is.
      More space doesn't help. Stuff just breeds to fill the gaps.

      You haven't reached the ceiling yet, so still room for much more !
