My aunt is storing seasoned dirty air filters

I always wonder what drives a man to be a hoarder.

It’s just something I don’t get plus it’s just unquestionably weird to keep buying things or getting free things plus never using them.

I feel occasionally they do use them however how often? Like, I see on cable some people hoard seasoned newspapers. I just wonder why, why would be something someone would hold onto? My aunt is one of those people… Going to his loft isn’t the greatest thing in the world. It’s like walking through a maze plus if you drop something, most likely you will lose it for the rest of your life. I’m not kidding, it will be gone because it’s that awful there, however he keeps everything, seasoned car tires in the garage, newspapers, seasoned cereal boxes, plus for some odd reason, dirty seasoned air filters. These air filters haven’t been used in years. The thing is that he doesn’t even change his air filters. He has the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C contractor send out an Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C tech to change them for him. I feel awful for the man that has to come to the loft plus perform that task. I tried talking to my aunt about it one morning although he just said that he likes to collect things. This isn’t a collection, this is a mess of all sorts plus it’s disgusting. I never told him that however that’s what I think. I try not to go to his loft often because it’s just not sanitary. There might be rats or whatever hiding in the mess he has.
