There are people like you and me, who save World War II-era National Geographics and the go-go boots we wore to our first Beatles concert. And then there are pack rats. Hard-core. Compulsive. The people who hoard, say, 40 years' worth of egg cartons. Or meat trays from the supermarket ("In case surprise dinner guests stop by and I need extra plates"). Or Popsicle sticks ("Never know when you might need a finger splint").
