Instead of learning how to “dig out” of the current clutter situation in your home, the idea behind Clutter Busters is to learn how to avoid taking on more possessions and balance out what you already own. As time passes by our houses become full to the roofline with items we may not truly love, use or need. This presentation will give you the ammunition to say, “enough is enough” and stay strong in your dealings with the myriad of items taking residence in your house. There are over 25 tips, tricks and mottos being taught in this one course.

These elementary abilities are going by the wayside and it is up to an individual to remain focused and orderly in our multi-tasking society.

Paton, of The Paton Law Firm, LLC, as they review all kinds of documentation that you must have and know where it “lives” when life events occur and you need those legal documents immediately.

What a workshop attendee says…
“The first workshop I attended was called “Paper, Paper, Everywhere.” Since I was drowning in paper clutter, it was a perfect start. Jean Marie’s demonstration of the tickler file was a life saver. I soon incorporated this tool into my daily life and developed a workable system for paper organization. This experience was only the beginning of a very special relationship.
Jean Marie came to my home and worked with me on several organization projects. She assisted me in going through the “piles of files” I had accumulated over many years. She also helped me organize my clothing closets and dresser drawers. Jean Marie’s mantra, SSPOE (sort, select, purge, organize and equalize), has become an integral part of my thinking and planning.”
