Clutter versus Being Organized: A Tips and Tricks Workshop

Looking for some tips and tricks to fight the battle against clutter? On Wednesday, November 14, at 7:00 p.m. the Farmington Libraries will host Sandee Fleet from the Farmington Valley Visiting Nurses Association for a workshop on conquering clutter and getting organized.

Clutter affects our space, productivity, time management, organization, and even the environment. Numerous studies have been performed on the inundation of clutter in our lives resulting in countless statistics on its negative impact: US News and World Report states that the average American spends one year of their life looking for lost or misplaced items at home and in the office; Mobile Technology Products asserts that using the correct organizational tools can improve time management by 38%; the Quill Filing Products catalog reports that 45 new sheets of paper are generated each day by every U.S. office worker; the Everyday Minimalist lists that 1 in 11 American households rents a self-storage space, spending $1000/year in rent.

If taking control of your clutter and downsizing from its sheer size sounds like the right combination, then this is the workshop for you!

This event is free and open to the public. Handouts will be provided and advance registration is required for this program. Please call 860-673-6791 for details or register through the library’s web site here. The Farmington Library is part of the Farmington Village Green and Library Association.  If you have special needs to attend library programs, contact the library in advance.
