Workshop explores issues of downsizing, organizing and simplifying

Nearly half of Americans consider their homes cluttered with items they no longer use, and one in seven have a room in their home filled with unused items. While most could use extra space, 41 percent of Americans report they have not decluttered their homes in over one year. 

“Boxed or Unboxed,” is an online workshop sharing tips on how people can approach downsizing, reorganizing and simplifying their homes.

This workshop will examine issues related to downsizing, including what to keep, how to deal with items attached to memories and when to get started. Advanced registration is required. Participants can sign up using the link below.

“Downsizing has many meanings,” said Aaron Van Valkenburg, Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources manager, in a press release. “For some it’s just emptying the house of accumulated things. For others it’s a matter or reorganizing, putting things in their place. And for others, there is a desire for a simpler lifestyle. Ultimately the end goal is to have a comfortable and safe environment where we can unwind and feel relaxed.”

Tina Baril, certified senior move manager and owner of Monarch Transitions, LLC., will be presenting this informational workshop. For more information about the presentation, call the Pierce County Aging and Disability Resource Center at 253-798-4600 or 1-800-562-0332.
