Trying to make sense – and make use – of your keepsakes and heirlooms? America’s top cleaning expert and star of the hit PBS series Legacy List with Matt Paxton shares his fail-proof approach to decluttering.
Your boxes of photos, family china, and even the kids' height charts aren’t just stuff; they’re attached to a lifetime of memories--and letting them go can be scary. For over 20 years, Matt Paxton has helped people from all walks of life who want to live more simply declutter and downsize. With empathy, expertise, and humor, he and his helpful new book can lead you to sift through years of clutter, let go of what no longer serves you, and identify the items worth keeping.
In an intimate Zoom meeting, Matt will share an illustrated presentation and then join in discussion. He’ll reveal the psychological roadblocks that prevent so many of us from lightening our material load and share tips on how to treasure but not stockpile our beloved family items. Don’t miss this informative and useful evening!
