Tara / Betty

Tara has been reported to her landlord and needs to clean out now or she'll be homeless. Tara grew up in a poor family and a cluttered home where she and her brothers and sisters as well as the family dog shared one bed. In adulthood Tara came to the realisation that she had no organisational skills and couldn't seem to part with anything. She also became an obsessive collector, saving things like McDonald's toys, nativity scenes, snow globes and hundreds of teddy bears. Betty has been collecting her entire life. Her father was the town "junk collector" and she was raised believing that everything had a purpose and was useful. However her years of excessive collecting and stubborn inability to part with anything have finally caught up to her. The city of Marysville has prosecuted Betty many times because of her failure to clean their property.
