Hoarding is the excessive gathering of food or certain items. Sometimes hoarding can become compulsive and problematic. When this happens, people are often unwilling to get rid of things they do not really want or need. They just can't bring themselves to part with many items, even when the item is useless to them. Through the years, these people have been referred to as packrats, but some experts are starting to believe this may be a serious mental health issue.
