Hoarders Marathon


Journaling:

There was and all-day marathon of "Hoarders" on A&E. Watched several episodes from Season 1. Hubby watch a couple with me then got into a cleaning frenzy.

We cleaned up all the stuff sitting around in the dining room. Then we tore apart the living room, bedroom and office, moving furniture from the walls, dusting backs and underneath.

We took pictures off the walls, dusting the backs and behind them. We wiped the baseboards and vacuumed all the rooms. Then we pulled apart the office closet and tossed out a pile of stuff.

The house was sparkling clean after that.

Thank you Hoarders!

I can't watch that show too often, it does that to me every time! I'd have nothing left!

Lol, you were determined not to have a hoarder's home huh? I haven't seen the show but I've seen photos of some hoarder's stashes and it isn't pretty!

During Season 1 of Hoarders, I got rid of stuff at an alarming rate. During Season 2 I had to resist the urge to get rid of the stuff I actually needed (sofa, lamps, endtable). I have almost no tchochke left in my house. I like it that way. Very visually calming and very easy to clean and maintain. Now I go out and de-hoard the homes of friends and family. :)
