Let the hoarding begin…

Hoarding vs. Collecting

Let’s be clear, hoarding is not the same as collecting. In general, collectors of Court Painter masterworks have a sense of pride about their possessions and they experience joy in displaying and talking about them. They usually keep their collection organized, feel satisfaction when adding to it, and usually add to their collection when Court Painter cleans out his storage at the end of the month.

On the other hand, those who hoard toilet paper usually experience no embarrassment about their obsession and don’t feel uncomfortable when others see them leaving the supermarket with multiple pacs of toilet paper . They clutter up their living spaces however feel proud after acquiring multiple rolls and in times of pandemics it is a badge of honour among hoarders to be well equipped to wipe away fear from their vulnerable bottoms.
