Imagine a home packed so full with stuff that there's barely room to move. The kitchen, the family room, even the stairwells become storage areas. Compulsive hoarders aren't just a reality TV phenomenon. Hoarding is more common than you might think. We'll explore compulsive hoarding in Northeast Ohio and talk about how hoarders can be helped. Do you show hoarding tendencies? Could a child's messy room or that junk-filled kitchen drawer be an early warning sign?
