Self-described and diagnosed hoarder Elaine let PhillyVoice into her Fishtown apartment on a recent Friday morning. Elaine loves to cook and still manages to use her kitchen despite the clutter.
Elaine says the condition of her bathroom is 'not that bad compared to some rooms.'
Little notes, like this one above the kitchen sink reminding Elaine to wash the dishes, are posted throughout the house.
Through the clutter of Elaine's living room, the front door can be seen. Two signs hang on the door. One reads 'House of Clutter' and other says 'Think Positive Thoughts.'
'It's a different kind of bad upstairs,' Elaine says of the condition of the second floor of her Fishtown apartment. Her bedroom is shown here.
