TAKE ACTION!: The Cost of Clutter Workshop

March 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Clutter costs you time, productivity and money. It probably makes you feel frustrated, stressed and overwhelmed. And it often wreaks havoc on the environment when discarded. As part of Ijams Take Action!, Beth Meadows of The Empathetic Organizer will teach participants how to overcome clutter in a way that’s sustainable for you and the environment.

Join us on March 12 at 6 p.m. to learn Beth’s method for tackling the constant flow of stuff, including an “inbox/ outbox” process, without creating unnecessary litter or losing your mind. You’ll explore various organizational methods, as well as local resources for thrifting and re-homing your items, before enjoying a group activity and clothing swap at the end!

* Please bring no more than five, lightly worn and freshly laundered items to trade at the end of the Cost of Clutter program.  Shoes and accessories are welcome, too. Attendees are not required to participate in the clothing swap.
