As my specialization is working with people who struggle with hoarding disorder and chronic disorganization, I decided to devote a monthly post to all things hoarding-related. Here are 5 things I'd like you to know this month.


1.

A helpful article on understanding the difference between stockpiling & hoarding in the age of Covid:

Hoarding, stockpiling, panic buying: What's normal behavior in an abnormal time?


2.

A book on hoarding written by professional organizers that just came out in December:

Filled Up and Overflowing: What to do When Life Events, Chronic Disorganization, or Hoarding Go Overboard.


3.

A free hour-long Zoom presentation put on by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Des Moines on Thursday, March 18, 2021, tilted:

Understanding Hoarding


4.

An informative video featuring Dr. Randy Frost, an expert in the field of hoarding giving tips for family members of loved ones who hoard:

Tips for Children Helping a Family Member with Hoarding Disorder (3:39)


5.

A little hoarding humor for ya!



As many of you know, I'm an active member of the CT Chapter of the National Association of Productivity and Professional Organizers (NAPO-CT). Every summer we like to get all our members together to do a group organizing project. One year we worked on the garage of a woman who struggled with hoarding disorder and you can see the clip of it here as it aired on Channel 3 News. I'm in the segment wearing my sunhat with the black band.


Please share this Hoarding Hi-5 with someone you think could benefit.

Thank you!
