節目介紹 Introduction

從屋子的外觀看來並沒有什麼異狀,但內部的家庭正為了許多不重要的事物占滿他們的生活而掙扎著。聖誕飾品、錫紙、報紙、標籤還沒撕下的新衣服等。每個人都對某種物品有難以言喻的癡迷。根據不同的情況,我們會找來一名治療師、一個專業的整理專家、或是一個清潔團隊在清理的過程中幫助這些收集者並提供工具讓他們能隨時監督自己的狀況。我們會讓他們的住處煥然一新並在一週後回來檢查,看他們是否能克服自己的儲物慾望。
From the outside their houses look normal. But inside a family is struggling to keep ahead of the insignificant things that have taken over their lives. Christmas ornaments. Tin foil. Newspaper. Bags of new clothing with tags still attached. Each person has latched on to something different and can't seem to let go. Depending upon the situation we'll enlist the help of a therapist, a professional organizer, or a cleaning crew who will guide our collectors through the clean-up process and give them the tools they need to keep their behavior in check. We'll give each "pack rat" a clean start and then follow up weeks later to find out if they have been able to keep their compulsive collecting at bay.
