Did you ever watch the show HOARDERS ?
I know all of us here have our precious stashes ! A couple episodes ago ,they were trying to get a hoarder ,who was an artist, to clean up her house. I caught one comment that the professional organizer said - & it cracked me up .
" Artists are the hardest people to get to throw things away . They see a FUTURE PROJECT in everything that we can't see ".
Even my DH agreed with that ! LOL
I've really started to watch my hoarding - I mean collecting . If I let myself go -- I could be on that show next !!! LOLOLL
