Our collection does say something about the times we live in. All the items are a collection of things that mean something to each of us or something we may have had for years. The collection does say somthing about our interests.  For example someone who brought a pen or a pencil it could mean they are interested in writing and someone that brought nail polish could mean they are interested in painting nails. The beliefs of this collection could be creativity or what the personal meaning may be to someones  items . Portia Munson's collections of colors probably had more of a meaning behind it then just a bunch of colored items.

pride vs possession

The difference between hoarding and collecting is....collecting is something that people do when things mean something to them for instance if you collect Art you may get a piece of art from every artist that inspires you . Hoarding is when people keep or have things just to have or just to keep for instance hoarders might keep everything or any object no matter of its value or regard of the consequence.
