  • I watch the show. I know someone who is a hoarder, although to a lesser degree. It is a form of OCD.

  • I think those situations are sad. I do use it to get me motivated to clean my house.

  • Yeah. I think my mom has it. She still has some of her work clothes from when I was like in 4th grade. I'm 27!!! I'm like wow if you clean it out you can put newer and nicer things in there lol that's my motto :)

  • that show scares me. i DON'T do walking around stuff. everything in my place has to be clean and organized and if we don't need it then it gets thrown away or donated. i was watching an episode last night and this woman had a 7 year old daughter who wanted to kill herself because her mothers hording problem was so bad.

  • We've watched it a few times and I always wonder, how do they let the TRASH pile up like that!? I can understand the buying and keeping things, but ewww, used diapers and things??

    I remember one episode we watched where they had no choice but to condemn the house. The woman had to use adult diapers because she had no running water and they (diapers) were just thrown on the floor. She tied herself to a chair in the kitchen at night to sleep!! It was BEYOND disgusting.

  • I was watching and listening to it too, while mopping up my kitchen and dining room floors. It blows my mind. I know there is some psychological thing behind it, but I see some of it as just plain laziness. I mean, throw your garbage away. And if your coffee pot has maggots in it....throw it out immediately for one....don't leave 3 sitting there. I know people like this, but it's just plain gross.

  • I love this show. I am very thankful that I am not that way and I know no one that is like that.
