About This Quiz

Would you be mortified for someone to look inside your bag? Some of us are fairly good at keeping it tidy, and some of us carry around enough supplies for a family of 12. Judging by the contents of your purse, we'll be able to tell if you are a hoarder in your everyday life. Carrying around junk mail from 2002 might be a clear indicator that your purse is a small peek into what your home might look like!

Do you keep every Sunday paper piled up in the corner because you might need it for a project? Do you have lipgloss that outdates a Miami Vice poster in your bag? If you're the type that loads up on clearance items because they could come in handy someday, you may, in fact, be a hoarder. 

Life's busy! We understand, and we're not going to pass judgment on you for the 6 pounds of loose change you carry around. However, we do feel that your suspicions have brought you to this quiz, and it may just be the intervention you need to hear. Tell us how many old movie stubs and old parking tickets you find in your bag, and we'll tell you just how must help you need to clean up your act!
