Paul McCartney Admits To Being A Hoarder


With a fortune worth an estimated $1 billion, money is one of the last things Paul McCartney needs to worry about.

But that's not to say he doesn't. The former Beatle says growing up with limited funds put him on "the 'let's not have too many money problems' trail" for the rest of his life. As a result, he refuses to throw away anything of value -- a habit that doesn't always sit well with his wife, Nancy. "Not having anything when I was a kid has stuck with me as far as money," McCartney says. "You know, I’m kind of crazy. My wife is not. She knows you can get rid of things you don’t need."

Still, McCartney stops short of calling himself a hoarder, saying he thinks the term "keeper" more accurately describes him. "If I go somewhere and I get whatever I bought in a nice bag, I will want to keep the bag," he says. "My rationale is that I might want to put my sandwiches in it tomorrow. Whereas Nancy says, 'We’ll get another bag.'"
