'Hot Mess House': Sam and Amy have enough things to 'fill three houses', can Cassandra help them declutter?
Having a cluttered home can make people feel low and Cassandra Aarssen knows that very well. With all the skills up her sleeves, she is all set to change the lives of people who struggle to say goodbye to their things. In the latest episode (July 8), Amy and Sam appeared on the show with the hope that Aarssen can help them out.
The pair recently moved into their new home and even though it is the house of their dreams, the things they have piled up are covering up the beautiful home. Amy and Sam decided to seek help from Aarssen when it came to the kitchen. Seeing several boxes that had been left untouched, Aarssen asked Sam and Amy to say goodbye to the things they didn't need.
She further asked them to divide things in terms of their usage. As the pair finally got to do that, Aarssen also realized how they had to change the colors of their kitchen. She believed that in the kitchen, the color was supposed to be lighter to allow other things to shine. The pair choose the color they thought would suit best and then decided to paint the room. Just when they thought they could not get more surprises, Aarssen decided to break the news that she was interested in helping them clear another room. Amy was emotional as she admitted they had enough stuff to fill up three houses.
As Aarssen looked at the room, she knew they had to repeat the same process they did in the kitchen. That is, divide things into the ones they needed and the ones they didn't. As Amy was going through her things, she came across family pictures that she did not want to let go of. She got confused and wondered if keeping them would mean hoarding things.
Aarssen made Amy understand that decluttering did not mean letting go of things that hold dear to people. Amy felt good about not letting go of some of the memories and decided to get back to work. Aarssen decided to give Sam the task of setting up the kitchen. Even though Amy was hesitant about this at first, she managed to let things go. With the help of some of the products Aarssen had sent, the pair managed to declutter and set everything in its place. The result left them emotional and they were happy that they had sorted out their kitchen and the living room.
'Hot Mess House' airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm ET on HGTV.
