Each of us maybe has a little trait of a pack rat in our personality. A “pack rat” is one who collects or hoards up unneeded items. There are a lot of us ‘old pack rats’ who blame the hard times of the 1930s and 1950s as the cause of our collecting and saving. During those years one was always preparing for a ‘rainy day.’ There were unexpected situations such as sickness, a new baby, taxes, or accidents that would occur and demand funds, and we didn’t have the government to bail us out.
