St. Paris Public Library offers ‘Confidently Conquer Clutter’


“Clutter: Coming to a Home Near You” is the overwhelming and unpleasant reality every day for many American households. Clutter isn’t just junk mail and old travel souvenirs; clutter is anything that doesn’t enhance or beautify your life. William Morris said it best back in 1880: “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”

At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 25, Olive Wagar, member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and owner of Organized by Olive LLC, will offer a free summer presentation, “Confidently Conquer Clutter,” at the St. Paris Public Library. She will encourage listeners to evict the clutter that has invaded their homes and lives.

“Every day, clutter is costing each of us time, money and energy,” Wagar said. “We can’t find important items lost under piles of clutter, we can’t park our cars in the garage, we pay late fees due to misplaced bills, we waste money on self-storage units, we jeopardize our safety with piles of stuff all over our floors, and we are exhausted just looking at dusty stuff that serves no current purpose in our lives. All because we have not made decisions about clutter.”

Get ready to:

*Update your clutter security system

*Uncover the cost of clutter

*Eliminate excuses for clutter

*Embrace effective decluttering strategies

Door prizes will be available.
