yeah they are and more times then not, they were faced with tragedy that started it all.  A death in the family, divorce etc.. it's sad

Yes, my mother, age 73 tends to hoard, not to the extent shown on the show but to some extent. She lives with my sister and I think that helps the problem. There is a lady down the street I think is a hoarder.  Her garage windows are stacked to the rafters, and I have been on her porch at her front door but not inside and it looked like a bit of an organized hoarder if that makes sense.

One time I was looking for a house to meet a daycare and went to the wrong house and they opened the door and I looked inside and they had things stacked to the ceiling with stuff and pathways throughout. I didn't want to seem shocked and I acted like I didn't notice.  My mom will hoard magazines lol.  she would just have boxes of magazines but again not to the extreme though.

I'm afraid I'm a hoarder in the making! I've never actually seen the show though. I have a hard time throwing stuff away..

LOL - I was just commenting in another group that if I don't clean my house soon it's going to start looking like an episode of Hoarders... 

I really need to get on it and get things put away and get the laundry done.

Yeah I kept my face straight.  I was thinking sweet lady if you fall in there, they will not find you...She is the sweetest little old lady down the street.  Stops by sometimes and gives my kids bubbles or a box of fruit loops simply cause she has no grandkids. She is a doll.
