Has any one any tips or hints or book suggestions for me to help me deal with a hoarder? My sister has her own 3 bed house that my parrnts gifted to her. They also gave her money to renovate…I know my parents are super generous. So the house is fab with lovely kitchen, bedrooms etc. Where does the hoarding come in??? My sister has a tendency to hoard- this is def learned off my mum. But my mum has haybarns/stables/multiple bedrooms too keep her hoard- and my dad clearing it as quick as my mum buids it up. My mum gets mad at first but after a couple of weeks she is glad that the crap is gone. I help my dad with this – we do it on days she is gone off.
My question is how to deal with my sister. She lives by herself and the hoard is growing. At this moment I cant access her sitting room or one bed room. The other bed room has a walk way etc. Ie its bad. I know the fact that I secretly bin stiff on her stresses her out and drives her mad. So how do I help her deal with this with out causing her stress??
Yhis weekend I have tried a different tract- I have painted +redecorated her box bedroon + put up ikea billy box shelves so she can have a specific space to put some of her stuff instead of secretly binning…but I am worried- will she just use yhis to get more stuff?? Any suggestions on how to deal with this ???
