The Hoarder’s Daughter by Tonya Thomas is a short story published by Four Winds, February 2012.

After the death of her father, Dana Morrison noticed that her mother’s house was becoming cluttered. First she saved grocery bags, then newspapers, and empty boxes. In no time flat, her house was filled with junk, junk, and more junk! Dana made the mistake of cleaning house, but that just made matters worse when her mother decided that her trash was more valuable to her than her daughter.

A daughter’s love is tested when she tries to unclutter her mother’s home. This was a good read that highlights the effect of hoarding on a family.
