Do you describe yourself as a hoarder? “I’m a hoarder” can mean a wide range of things from a harmless bit of collecting to a full-blown compulsive mental health problem that can cause serious health and safety issues.
The problem with self assessment is that we often don’t have the correct tools to make the assessment. Luckily, there is a great tool I can share with you!
If you feel your belongings are causing you problems, I strongly encourage you to take this test. It’s from the book: Buried in Treasures by experts David F. Tolin, Randy O. Frost and Gail Steketee. Buried in Treasures outlines a scientifically-based and effective self-help program for helping compulsive hoarders dig their way out of the clutter and chaos. It’s a practical work book offering plenty of guidance and tips on how to create change. The quiz will help determine your:
- Clutter score
- Difficulty Discarding score
- Acquiring score.
You can find the book at Amazon.com.
