“Keep the Memories, Lose the Stuff”

Matt Paxton helps downsizers decide what to keep, and what not to.

Matt Paxton ’97 is still helping people sort treasures from trash. The second season of his TV show Legacy List With Matt Paxton is online now and on many PBS stations. In it, he helps families, especially older people, prioritize as they unclutter and pack for smaller houses.

Well known from his time on A&E’s Hoarders, Paxton has been in the profession for more than 20 years, and he’s seen it all – from 300 cats to a Picasso in the attic. The business administration grad was featured in The Washington Post and The New York Times last winter, and he appeared earlier on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

In April, he lent his knowledge to fellow alumni during a Zoom presentation. He discussed his career and his time at Mary Washington, and he shared wisdom about getting organized.
