NATIONAL PACK RAT DAY – May 17th 2016


National Pack Rat Day May 17

NATIONAL PACK RAT DAY

National Pack Rat Day is observed annually on May 17.  This day encourages us to take a look at ourselves and see if we have “Pack Rat” tendencies within us.  A “Pack Rat” holds on to, collects or hoards (often unneeded) items.

“Pack Rat” can be considered a clever nickname for a hoarder.  They may develop problems with compulsive hoarding.  There are problems which may arise from compulsive hoarding which includes cluttered homes, yards, vehicles and other spaces.  Doing so may become dangerous for themselves as well as others.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Take a look around and maybe start cleaning out unwanted and unneeded items.  If you need to, call a friend to come and help you get started.  Once you clean out and clean up, you will feel good about what you have accomplished! Use #NationalPackRatDay to post on social media.
