In this excerpt from Matt Paxton’s new book “Keep The Memories, Lose the Stuff,” Matt tells a story about how he got started cleaning, explains why memories about stuff matter, and discusses how different generations collect different things.
Extreme cleaning specialist Matt Paxton is back on Hoarders—and on PBS, with Legacy List, a show he created that cable networks rejected, because they didn’t think anyone would want to watch old people or uplifting stories about their possessions and lives.
A&E, renew this show, which became an even better, more informative, more emotionally affecting show as a result of its longer episodes.
Hoarders returned with a two-hour episode after being off the air for two years. It started off feeling unnecessary, but proved its worth by the end.
Hoarders season 10 is now casting, though it is unclear when new episodes will air, or how many are being produced.
The “Sandra” episode of Hoarders was an exceptional example of the A&E show at its absolute best. And it broke both Dr. Zasio and Matt Paxton.
Hoarders airs its season, maybe series, finale on Sunday, with what will be Matt Paxton’s final episode. Why it’s “the most difficult hoard I’ve ever seen.”
