A chaotic and cluttered home often leads to a chaotic and cluttered mind. Few things feel better than purging the old stuff and habits to make you feel lighter, more free and ultimately happier. Simplifying your home spills over into your entire life.
You don’t have to go it alone—the East Baton Rouge Parish Library is offering free decluttering support. Join Certified Professional Organizer Alyssa Trosclair as she discusses organizing methods to help you tackle your clutter and get it together. As Louisiana’s first certified professional organizer, Trosclair’s focus goes beyond making your house look neat and clean. She helps you identify why the disorganization is happening and guides you through a five-step process to teach the organizational skills necessary to maintain order.
