Gadget Hoarding – Why Can’t People Throw Away Old Gadgets and Electronics?

UPDATE: I have heard from several people that this is not a rare phenomenon. What is most interesting, and not really unexpected, is that it’s pretty much only men who can’t part with old electronics and gadgets. If I make a video reviewing hoarding makeup and other cosmetics, I think we will find the yin to the yang for what men and women hoard.

Why are so many people hoarding electronics? Gadget Hoarding is a real problem and is on the rise.
