Are you a bibliophile or are you a hoarder?

We all love books, but it is impossible to read them all. Some of our clients, including many academics, would have rathered to face the wrath of their landlord or housing cooperative, instead of throwing out one book.

The client in the video below was saved from eviction by Disaster Masters®, after they contacted us to use our disposophobia services.

If you, a loved one, client or colleague are a bibliophile and need assistance with a hoarding, syllogomania or Disposophobia problem, please contact us at 1-800-ThePlan, or send us an email at helpme@theplan.com for immediate solutions.

Organizing books need to be organized

Organizing books

The image on the right was taken at a recent Disaster Masters project in Manhattan. The client had amassed several dozen books about organizing and getting rid of clutter, but all were just part of the mess that started at the front door and continued throughout the apartment. She had not read a single chapter in any of the books.

Like many others that are classed by the media as hoarders, she had time management and multi-tasking issues. The books became the problem, rather than helping her to find a solution.

The real way to solve this mess comes from within. The first step to freeing yourself from the strangling effects of too much stuff is to make the decision to call the Disaster Masters.

Our coaching and Life Transition Management services are rungs on the ladder in freeing you from the cluttered life that you have created for yourself.

IAQ Radio Show

Several years back, Disaster Masters founder Ron Alford was featured on the IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) Radio Show, where he discussed the finer points of Disposophobia and the people that the media terms as hoarders. Check out the radio interview here.

Thought Masters™

We are frequently asked how we have had such success with our decluttering projects over the years.

Of the many factors that go into our processes, a vital element is how we help the client to adjust their way of thinking, particularly with regard to how they envision their lives in the future. This is where our Thought Masters™ website comes in.ThoughtMasters Ad

A huge number of people in the US have been misdirected to believe that they can master time by multitasking and even defy the laws of physics. Like being in two places at the same time or extending a day into 30 hours.

Yes, we agree that what you think about is probably doable, providing you have devoted the time and place to implement your thoughts into viable action plans. Thinking is one thing, doing what you think is another. In the real world there are no super people who can do two projects simultaneously. Its one or the other never both.

The net result is that your mind creates the environment that you live and work in.  Projects and stuff everywhere on every horizontal surface and hanging on every door and hook too. If it is not stopped the new stuff ends up on the floor and then on top of previous “things to do”, books, newspapers and so on.

You think the solution is to buy a book or two on clutter management. These too end up on the pile and create more clutter. Boxes, containers, shelves to store stuff end up as more clutter.

A cluttered mind creates a cluttered home, office, relationships, and a stressful life laden with anxiety and sickness.

Do you suffer from Disposophobia?

Disposophobia, what is that?

-The fear of getting rid of stuff.

-That sounds pretty intense. Is that like those people you see on those hoarding shows on TV?

-Yes & no. You & I are both disposophobic.

-What? No way. My house doesn’t look like that.

-Let’s try an experiment that proves my point, OK? Take out your wallet, and remove your credit cards.

-Ok.

-Now throw each & every one in the garbage can. While you are at it, take out your cash, and throw that in there too.

-What? No! Are you crazy?

-No, but this shows that you are a disposophobic. You have a fear of getting rid of your stuff. It is not as chronic as the people featured on those shows, but it’s like comparing an alcoholic, to a person who has an occasional drink. It’s a different level of addiction.

Since it was initially coined & trademarked by Ron Alford, founder of Disaster Masters, Inc. ®in 1995, the definition of disposophobia has been maligned by so called experts, but though it has some links with what we now call hoarding, Disposophobia is still defined as “The fear of getting rid of stuff”.

Disposophobia is an evaluation of a person that relates to their belongings. It is a thought process for every human that decides on the value of their possessions.  Disposophobia is an internal thought, by a human, with relationship to their possessions.

Disposophobia has gotten a lot more attention over the past few years in the media, and on TV shows, the original being the BBC show, featuring Disaster Masters, Inc. ®, “A life of Grime: New York”.  Disaster Masters, Inc. ® is America’s most experienced & oldest contents management organization that provides cost efficient solutions for people who suffer from Disposophobia. Having de-cluttered thousands of Disposophobics over the last 35 years, Disaster Masters, Inc. ®are the eminent experts in the field.

Disposophobia is not something that can be cured by either a mental health professional, or by a garbage removal service. Just like a mental health professional has never cured an alcoholic, they cannot cure a Disposophobic. The recovery comes when the subject decides that they no longer want to live that life.  Disaster Masters, Inc. ® provides the coaching to assist with this life change, and provides the expertise in sorting out the valuables from the clutter.

Disposophobia, simply put is a fear of disposing, or getting rid of, personal belongings, such as money, jewelry, or last week’s newspapers.

If you, or a friend, or family member suffer from chronic disposophobia, and you need help, check out our website, where you can learn a little more about Disposophobia, read about the services & expertise provided by Disaster Masters, Inc. ®, and see how we can help you.
