Hesperia father of eight, Alex Molesky, was laying in his bed watching "Clean House," the Style Network TV show that helps people unclutter their homes, when a realization hit him like a ton of yard-sale knick-knacks.


"The stuff that was in the TV was in my room," Molesky noticed, as his eyes scanned his room and then the TV show. "I realized it was time to give it up and clean house."


So Molesky's wife, Lisa, put her husband's inspiration into action. With much of their home under three- to four-feet of belongings, she picked up a camera and starting taking photos of the home's most challenging locations: their two teenage daughters' bedrooms.


"I sent the pictures of my daughters' rooms," Lisa Molesky said, admitting, "I wanted to show theirs, not mine."


To the couple's surprise, a TV show representative contacted them, and the Molesky's dream to make sense of all the countless mounds of stuff became a reality.


"It's an eclectic mix," Matt Iseman, the show's "Go-to-Guy," said Thursday on location at the Molesky home on Hesperia's west side. "They've really got some interesting stuff. A lot of it is lovingly displayed."


Another observer wasn't so tactful: "It looks like you're running a thrift store in here."


For almost a week, Iseman, a sizable production crew and "Clean House" cast hostess Niecy Nash, design guru Mark Brunetz and yard sale diva Trish Suhr will organize, categorize and scrutinize the Molesky's intriguingly diverse collection of possessions.


"We want to give them their function back," said Suhr, who will preside over the family's yard sale on Saturday at the former Blockbuster Video building on Main Street in the Albertson's shopping center. "They have good taste. They're good yard-salers." (The show is expected to air in four to five months.)


According to Brunetz, Lisa's love of cowboy and Native American items could work well, if tamed. So can husband Alex's love for all things Route 66. Brunetz is eager to create different room themes, but he wants to keep the Molesky's preferences intact.


They're also hopeful the family will soon experience a new kind of togetherness. Currently, when the family has a meal, the children sit at a table with nearby clutter imposing on their space while the parents eat standing at a breakfast bar in the kitchen.


"We're looking forward to sitting down together," Lisa Molesky said.
