Maybe there's hope yet?
Same here. DD1 is 8 now and a somewhat better, but she certainly likes to hoard. She never even opens anything. There are X-Mas gifts in her room still in their original package. Last year, after it had been 6 months and almost every single one of her birthday presents were still unopened, I took them and started regifting! Her drawers are full of little objects, candy that she never eats, rocks are huge with her, pieces of paper, on and on. I sneak in her room every 3 months or so and go through it all, she rarely notices.
