Krista first realized her need to hoard was out of control about five years ago. Although Krista did hoard before she and Bruce were married, it wasn't a major problem until they moved into a bigger house.
"I thought [a bigger house] would help, [give her] some more space; help Krista feel good about herself...help her have some time to hopefully go through things," Bruce says.
Krista even stopped working to stay at home with the children, believing that being near the clutter would encourage her to clean up.
"I was hopeful that [staying at home] would help, but it really hasn't," Bruce says. "Even with her staying home and having time."
