A few weeks ago I was reading a blog post on Recycle-ista, Adventures in Thrifting about what type of thrifter she was. I really didn’t know what I was, so I have been thinking about it on and off for a while.
Recycle-ista considers herself a Hoarder-Gloater. Check out her post on Hoarder-Gloater or Churn and Burn
Hoarder does not seem to fit me, because if I purchase something to resell, I really do not have a hard time letting it go. However, if you saw my downstairs storage area, you would probably call me a hoarder since it is total mess. I do enjoy blogging about my finds, so does that make me a Gloater? I am not a Churn and Burn thrifter either since this is not something I do full-time. My family and homeschooling come first. This is more of a hobby to me, so I do not push myself to list the items I plan to sell.
So I guess I want to define a new kind of thifter, a Turtle Churner. Yep, that is me. I like to move my treasures, mostly because I want others who will even enjoy them more, to have an opportunity to buy them. I do it at a slow pace. I enjoy my treasures. I am not in a hurry.
Now I just need to figure out a system of organizing and storing my treasures while slow and steady wins the race. I will not let this
hobby,obsession take over my house. What kind of thrifter or picker are you?
