Collect Cash With Crazy Clutter

CHICAGO, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Calling all crazy collectors: that clutter in your apartment can help you clean up – at the bank, that is. is hosting the “Possession Obsession Contest,” which, until September 10, invites proud hoarders to submit a two minute video showcasing their collections in the hopes of stuffing their pockets with the $20,000 prize.

But according to spokesperson Lisa DeVries, your dolls and action figures will have to fight some stranger – and much sicker – collections.

DeVries says, “We’re looking for creativity, originality, and the unusual. I would love to be shocked. I don’t get grossed out easily, although we don’t want anybody to say, ‘Here are the lint balls I’ve collected for the past 10 years!’”

DeVries adds, “It’s not only the collection, but how it’s taken over the apartment.”

And DeVries knows a thing or two about clutter, especially since she’s bogged down with belongings she can’t part with too.

She says, “I’ve got 5000 CDs, 3000 books, 250 pairs of black shoes, and don’t even talk to me about lip gloss!”
