Matt Paxton is one of the extreme cleaners on A&E TV’s Hoarders TV show. I had the opportunity to assist him last summer in the taping of an episode. (I’ll be sure and post here when I know when it will air.)

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.

21 September 2009 | Comments [0] »

I’m hooked on A&E Television’s hit documentary series, Hoarders. When I first heard about it (when it was in the production phase), red flags went up.
