No registration required.

Tuesday, April 9 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The Best Way to Declutter Your Home Hosted by Susan McCarthy of Is there a best way to declutter and organize your home? It all depends upon the time you can give to decluttering as well as your energy, attention level, and decision-making skills. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of the most popular methods for decluttering and how to figure out what will work best for your situation. Susan McCarthy is a professional organizer, and after the stress of emptying her parents’ home, she took a closer look at her own possessions and began decluttering. That process of discovery encouraged her to begin helping others to clear the clutter from their homes. Registration required.
