I’m a recovered hoarder. My mother is still a hoarder. I grew up learning the arts of procrastination, clutter, denial, and phobias. Through a tremendous amount of time and effort, I’ve changed my behaviors. Now I am quite organized and maintain a nice home I am proud of. I can even have visitors, and they can look in every room! Our garages even have cars in them! I set up this site to be a community resource to help people deal positively with hoarding issues (whether their own, or family, friends, or neighbors). Perhaps one day my mother will be a recovered hoarder, too.
