Plot Synopsis

Each episode follows the lives of two different hoarders -- people who find it impossible to throw things away, even when the items impair their daily lives. Whether they're facing eviction, the loss of their children, jail time, or divorce, they are all desperately in need of help. Experts work to heal each hoarder, and cleaning is just the first step. Some can't throw away even the tiniest thing - a sponge, a button, an empty box - because it's so overwhelming, while others welcome professional guidance to organize their lives and give them strength.
