Could you imagine living like that? Walking over who knows what. I don't keep what I don't need.

I can, in a way, kind of imagine it. My dad has hoarder-like tendencies. It has never been as severe as the people on that show. Aside from characteristics of hoarding, my dad is also lazy and doesn't like to clean. I also think he has a fucked up idea of what clean is.

I had to move in with my dad when I was 20. It was miserable. I spent every SINGLE day cleaning that house, throwing stuff away, organizing. It was just really awful.

My dad collects plastic and those twistie ties. I don't know why he thinks he needs a drawer full of twistie ties. He thinks it's going to save him when the apocalypse comes or something.

Ugh. My husband is a bit of a hoarder. NOTHING compared to those shows, but I think if I wasn't here, it could get close to that bad. It drives me nuts. We have all this crap sitting around that in my mind, is trash.

I know when I don't feel like cleaning I'll flip thru the channels on tv see the show and say oh man I gotta clean. My house is always clean but tidying up and deep cleaning is never done u can always find something. Plus having pet birds you can imagine.

I think the only thing that gets somewhat crazy is my craft area. Other than that, we somewhat minimalists.

No...... I cannot imagine.  Especially that one episode that literally looked like a roach motel.  HELL NO!  *starts itching*

I'm back & forth on this while doing my baseboards listening to the tv its animal hoarding now. No way I like animals but that's a bit much.
