"This is crazy!" declared Doug as he turned in a circle to consider his surroundings. "I'm nominating you for an episode of 'Hoarders'!" We were in my walk-in closet, and Doug's facial expression was part amazement, part horror, and part acid indigestion. Usually, I do a closet clean-out by myself. I'd rather chew tinfoil than let somebody into the bottomless pit of wretchedness and despair that is the place where my sweat pants go to die. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at it. No matter how many trips I make to the donation center, somehow I never manage to liberate even two hangers worth of wardrobe space.
