This survey provides a sense of how much your clutter affects your life. It also draws attention to the attitudes that seem to be fueling your clutter. Hoarding expert David Tolin, PhD, says this is a well-regarded tool for measuring the way you feel about clutter. I asked all our test panelists to take this survey. Once you’re finished, you can compare your score to theirs.

Your score will give you a better sense of how badly you want to bring items home and how much you have to struggle to get rid of them later. For each of these questions, select the response that corresponds most closely to your experience during the past week.
