Introduction: This study was conducted to investigate the relationship between metacognitive beliefs with saving behavior/hoarding in a non-clinical population.
: This descriptive-correlation recruited a statistical population of graduate students of Isfahan universities. Within the study population (the 370 students who were selected via multi-stage cluster sampling), 355 students (198 female and 157 male) completed the Saving Inventory consisting of three subscales i.e. cluttering, saving and acquisition  and the Metacognition Questionnaire-30comprising five subscales i.e. positive beliefs about worry, lack of control and danger, cognitive confidence, thought control and cognitive self-awareness. Data were analyzed through Pearson’s correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis.
: There was a significant positive correlation between saving behavior/ hoarding and metacognitive beliefs (p< 0.01).The multiple regression analysis indicated that positive beliefs about worry and cognitive self-awareness could predict 20.5 percent of the cluttering variance. Meanwhile, the positive beliefs about worry, lack of control, danger and cognitive confidence could predict 25.8 percent of the saving variance. Positive beliefs about worry, lack of control and danger, thought control and cognitive self-awareness could predict 20.9 percent of the acquisition variance.
Conclusion: Our findings propose that three metacognitive beliefs including positive beliefs about worry, lack of control and danger, and cognitive self-awareness have a potential role in prediction of the saving behavior/hoarding which need to be considered by researchers and therapists.
