I don't like the term hoarder. I prefer the term redneck 401K. The stuff's always there if you get in a bind.

I love it ( redneck 401K)... I'm set for life :93:.

I like rusty, just about anything metal

Same here. We've found some amazing kitchen gadgets. We need to downsize a bit though. The best was probably the 16 piece gold plated silverware or the NIB hard anodized cookware set. The Pyrex food storage containers are pretty nice as well. Still waiting for a George Foreman ceramic grill to come along.

My most useful was a brand new Showtime Rotisserie Over - Was big enough to put a 14lb turkey into for thanksgiving...

I have a really really cool  cheese/salad Shredder/meat grinder that has suction cups to hold it down on the counter.

Do sofa's count? I'm on my third and final sofa from a storage unit. It's a super-comfortable L-shaped couch with cup holders, and recliners, and it's just basically awesome.

Same here. I bought this 10X15 unit that was packed floor to ceiling with boxes and kids toys. Didn't really see anything of value, but all of the merchandise I could see looked new. These people spent a LOT of money on their kids, which gave me a good feeling about the unit. Turned out that all of the furniture was in the back. There was a 3 piece sofa set (9' sofa, 7' sofa and love seat) which was practically brand new. Since it was really good quality furniture, we decided to upgrade. Also found several pieces of gold jewelry in this unit.

I am an ardent fan of jerseys and my huge collection ranges from football jerseys, basketball jerseys, soccer jerseys, ice-skating jerseys, and everything else jerseys. I do not wear them neither do I display them out at home. I just love admiring them occasionally when I get bored with nothing much to do at home.
