Some great resources on hoarding

7 October 2009

I’m back from Los Angeles, where I earned my Certified Professional Organizer in Chronic Disorganization® credential from the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization — more on the significance of that in a post later this week. As usual after a trip, I’m struggling to get back into the swing of my routines. (I’m happy to report that I have managed to clear my desk each evening.)

Today I just want to share with a you a tremendous list of resources to help hoarders, compiled by my friend Geralin Thomas, CPO-CD® of Metropolitan Organizing in Cary, N.C. Geralin is one of the expert organizers on A&E’s Hoarders documentary TV show. She collaborated with professional organizer Yvonne Trostli, M.S., M.A. of Whole Life Organizing Pittsboro, N.C., to create the list.

If you have hoarding tendencies, or you’re just interested in the topic, this is a great place to find resources that might interest you.

Janine, I turned on Oprah today. I haven’t been watching it lately and didn’t know but they did a piece on “Hoarders” It was the couple from the first episode and Geralin was shown in the clip. I haven’t seen the whole Oprah show, I am still watching it but I will watch it til the end. I find this whole subject fascinating. Congratulations on your recent certification.
