Woman Suffocates Under Piles Of Clutter In Home

I shouldn't laugh, but this story reminds me rather of our house. Not that we are particularly horders, just messy. Most people fear burglars breaking in and trashing their house when they are off on holiday. We reckon they would probably leave it tidier than they found it!

Along similar lines, a few years ago an ex-pat told us a story about how all their ship-load of stuff was ruined in transit by oil. Of course it must be sad to lose quite a lot of it, but (as they said) also in some ways a relief to have a solid excuse for good clear-out without having to make difficult decisions about everything. As usual, Tyler Durden hits the nail on the head (actually, we don't hate our jobs, but it's close enough).
