COVER STORY: Seeking help for hoarding | Watch Video
When is enough ENOUGH? Chances are you have a drawer, a closet, a basement, an attic or garage that is just so stuffed with "stuff" you don't know what to do with it all. Then there are those whose entire houses are in that condition - so jam-packed with junk they have become fire and health hazards, virtually impossible to live in.

Taken to extremes, having too much stuff can be classified as hoarding, a psychological disorder that can turn homes into disaster areas. Rita Braver reports our Cover Story.
