Hoarding is a serious condition, not just entertainment

May 9, 2013
The Daily Mining Gazette

Spring is usually the time people give their homes a good cleaning. Although this year I can say that I started my "spring cleaning" during one of our last late snow storms. I am sure other people are doing the same thing this time of year when I see and hear more announcements in the newspaper and on the radio for upcoming garage sales. Spring cleaning has its benefits such as helping you feel more relaxed and in control of your living space, it helps you to take inventory of items that you want to keep and get rid of those that you don't and it's a great work out- you will burn off extra calories cleaning out your garage or basement. It's normal to accumulate extra "stuff" every year, but there comes a point when too much stuff in your home becomes a problem- it even may become a serious health condition known as hoarding.
