Three behaviors characterize hoarding: acquiring too many possessions, difficulty discarding or getting rid of them when they are no longer useful or needed, and difficulty organizing possessions. When these behaviors lead to enough clutter and disorganization to affect someone’s health or safety, or they lead to significant distress, then hoarding becomes a “disorder”. Simply collecting or owning lots of things does not qualify as hoarding. ~ International OCD Foundation
Hoard: a large amount of something valuable that is kept hidden ~ Merriam-Webster
