Hoarders Season 2 Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I admit I have a weird obsession with this show. It is sad and painful but seeing the transformation is so brightening and encouraging. I honestly watch Hoarders to be inspired to clean when I don’t have the spoons. Even just a few things a day gets done.
