Life has certainly changed over the past 6 months.  We can discuss how everyone has been, how you're coping with the shutdown, and of course, what were the best books you've read while staying safe at home.  Other potential topics of discussion: Have you discovered any new library apps or databases?  What about other online streaming or services?  What is your favorite new way of grocery shopping?  Curbside pick-up, home delivery, meal order service, or still traditionally shop?  Have you tried a new great recipe and are you willing to share?  

Please click below to register and you will be sent a link the day of the event.  You will be emailed a link to the meeting within an hour before the start time.  We use a service called Go To Meeting.  You click on the sent link, it will download a tiny program and it will be live on your screen.  It will then ask for the password which will be included in the e-mail.

Declutter and Organize Your Closet VIRTUAL EVENT

6:00pm - 7:00pm

Register below for this virtual event.

This hands-on, virtual workshop guides you through the process of organizing a closet that makes getting dressed take less time with less stress. 

Set up your device near your closet so you can get to work. Intimidated by the idea of pulling everything out of your closet? Have no fear, we’ll use a minimal mess technique that allows you to declutter your closet without worrying about ending the night with your bed hidden by a pile of clothing you still need to sort through. You don’t need any special organizing products for this process, but you do want boxes (or bags) that you can fill with clothing you want to donate or sell. 

Susan McCarthy of ALessClutteredLife.com is a professional organizer, writer, and coach. She is a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals. Through NAPO University she’s received Specialist Certificates in Life Transitions, Workplace Productivity, and Residential Organizing, and Household Management.

Please register online for the event and you will be sent a code to access the meeting at start time.
