There is a well known mental dissorder associated with storing things away like this. I don't recall it's name. It is much more commmon than you'd think, and is a real concern for us in the fire service as the fuel load in these homes is truly astounding and a search is nearly impossible.

In new-german such a person is called a "Messy" - i think, in english it's the same...
I believe it's OCHD, for Obsessive-Compulsive Hoarding Disorder.
I know someone who kept their house like this and had a fire. The firemen tried in vain to contain the fire but gave up and let the house burn to the ground.
