DO YOU WATCH HORDERS? SP. SORRY.

DOES WATCHING THE SHOW HORDERS MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE GRABBING A BOX OF TRASH BAGS AND LIQUIDATING? LOL. EVERYTIME i SEE THAT SHOW I START THINKING ABOUT ALL THE STUFF THAT I COULD GET RID OF, THAT'S JUST WASTING SPACE. I'M NO WHERE NEAR THAT BAD, IT SEEMS AS I GET OLDER, SENTIMENTAL VALUE CHANGES A BIT. BUT IT STILL MAKES YA THINK.............DOESN'T IT? LOL

  • I've seen it once it was too much for me, and yes then I went and had to make sure the house wasn't cluttered

  • Yep, I watch that show once in a while. When I see some of those houses and the mess they live in it makes me want to break out the cleaning products and give my house an extra good scrubbing. It also is my motivation for downsizing when I do my iin depth spring/fall cleaning, organizing and decluttering.

  • I was just watching this last night actually, and I was telling my husband about it today. I think that the woman that didn't throw away any trash for a year was just gross. Keeping papers, boxes whatever isn't as gross, but leaving food boxes around? I can't handle clutter, it SERIOUSLY stresses me out. I had my neices over and between them and my three kids, I was about to flip. I can handle some mess, I understand with kids they'll have toys all over, but I couldn't even walk in the livingroom! There is no way I could even step foot in a house like that. I understand it's a disorder, but holy crap!

  • My house has never been like those houses and never will be. But it did inspire my adult son that's living here until he's completed his Law Enforcement Training course to clean his room.

  • Yep I watch it and it both makes me want to purge and it makes me feel so much better about my cluttered house. I mean I have clutter, it comes with having kids and being busy, but as bad as it gets (before I purge everything) it's not even close to as bad as some of the "after" shots of those houses.

  • I live with a (diagnosed) hoarder; the show would make me go to pieces.
