Welcome to my home

February 5, 2013

Most people that have clutter in their homes have it for no other reason than most of us: we don’t know what to do with all of our stuff. Hence, it starts to formulate small piles, or, in extreme cases, inter¬vention broadcasted to the world on reality TV (A&E’s Hoarders, anyone?).

“It would be really nice to have more volunteers for this in our area, particularly men,” states Angle. “We hope people will take advantage of this training; all it requires is your time.”
