This time, I appeared (three times in one night) on a local news program...rummaging through my purse.
Said rummaging was during a class on decluttering, downsizing and reorganizing. I didn't know I was being videoed until the next day, when my co workers gleefully told me about my candid appearance in the video. Oops.
Exhibit one for decluttering and downsizing: my purse. I think I was rummaging for a pen to take notes.
Anyway, our local Office for Aging sponsored this class on decluttering and downsizing. It was more a sharing of common experience, along with a couple of hand outs. I was one of the few caregivers there but there were a lot of middle aged and older people there to find out how to take control of their lives back from clutter.
I'll bet many of my readers struggle with this.
So do many bloggers.
The name of Marie Kondo even came up. Yes, we do have a lot to learn from this decluttering expert from Japan, but if I bought her book, it would join the other
I even found out there is a clutter support group that meets once a month in our area. On a weekday, of course, when I work. But I did learn a lot in the class, and I am ready to tackle the clutter. Not like Marie Kondo would. But I will find my own way. I have to.
One small step at a time. I (and my belongings) will be happier for it.
Do you have a problem with clutter?
