Are You a Home Project Hoarder?

I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel like I've got a serious problem hoarding supplies for my home projects. According to Wikipedia, compulsive hoarding is "the excessive acquisition of possessions (and failure to use or discard them)." While I may not be to that point with my fabric stash, give me a couple years and we very well could have a problem on our hands.

It is just something I can't say no to, made evident by the fact that one of my son's first words was "fabric". If I see a print I love for a good price I just can't resist buying it, even if I don't have an immediate project in mind. Fabric's not my only weakness. I also have 2 tables, a footstool, a buffet and a cupboard that I'm going to refinish one of these days and I constantly find myself searching through Craigslist listings for another project.  I just can't seem to stop myself.

I know I'm not the only one who does this, so let's hear it readers. I want to know, what do you stock-pile? Do you have stacks of fabric in the top of your closet? Or is your basement full of furniture needing a little TLC? What items do you find yourself collecting for future use?
