    Does anyone else watch Hoarder TV shows and.......

    get terribly upset because of all of the good stuff they are/might be throwing into the dumpsters?!

    Ok, so I draw the line at roaches and cat and human waste, but still, you can wash glass, can't you? : )

    It's a sickness, folks, a sickness....... : )

    Yep my wife watches that show all the time. And yep the few times I watched it it was obvious those folks had a problem.
    I guess though with the clean up they are more interested in getting the stuff out then in what they could do with it.

    I wonder how many treasures went into a dumpster when they do this for real. More then willing to bet though on the shows, there's someone on scene who knows if something is valuable. Question is do they tell the family, or keep it for themselves?


    With all the stupid reality shows they have, wonder why they haven't done a Dumpster Divers? Be more interesting to me then some Diva's of Podunk, or Guy's with beards.



    p.s. I had an Aunt like that, big time horder. We went through everything, found she was also hording money too, and hiding it among all the trash she was keeping. If we hadn't been looking it would have ended up in the dump.

    Although I realize that they have a sickness, I meant a sickness for those of us who are drooling over all of the stuff that they are throwing away : )

    I guess since they have the help of the TV show at that moment, they might not have time ot go through it all and sort out the potential valuables, but you would think that most of these people need money. It just saddens me all that great history that is just going to the dump and eing forever lost. Yeah, I wonder if the hired people cleaning out the house ever go through it later or use different dumpsters for the good vs. ick stuff?

    "Diva's of Podunk, or Guy's with beards" funny

    I hate the show and the people are gross and should be locked away, especially the ones with kids.

    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    There are some that are beyond hope and need mush more serious help (maybe to include being put away) but others just need some light at the end of their tunnels and help to see it.

    And no, I am not a bleeding heart by any means! : )

    Anyone who would live in the filth that they show on tv is beyond help I think....maybe not, but probably.

    I went to an auction for the contents of a hoarder's house a couple of years ago. After they abandoned the place, the vandles got in and trashed it. It was so bad all the other pickers just shook their heads and left. My partner and I got it for $50. After picking through it and taking the things we wanted, 2 pick up loads each, we moved most out to the yard and had a yard sale. netted $950 on sat. and gave the rest to one of the neighbors. We didn't even have to clean it up. Good weekend.

    Cool beans-see that's what I was looking to hear. In some (most?) cases I'm sure it takes a strong stomach, but I'm also sure that there has to be some properties that it is def worth the effort. Thanks for posting!

    Couldn't even think of watching it.

My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."
