Through Rose-colored Glasses: Sentimentality and Clutter (Meetup)

August 27, 2015, 7:00 PM8:30 PM

- Free
Forty years of old glasses

If we could look at our own stuff through a stranger’s eyes, we’d see a lot of things that have lost any practical value.

Houston Clutter Coaching August 2015 Meetup

Professional organizer Gayle Goddard facilitates the meeting of the Houston Clutter Coaching Meetup Group.

Feeling sentimental about our stuff is a big reason that we keep more than we can manage. If we could see through a stranger’s eyes, we’d see a lot of things that have lost any practical value. But it’s easy to look at our own collections through filters of memory and nostalgia and to rationalize our attachments until our spaces are overflowing with the physical reminders of our pasts.

Our August meetup will explore the sentimental roots of clutter. We’ll examine the rationalizations we use to hold on to things that we should logically let go. We’ll suggest an approach to decision-making that balances sentimental value with our real-world conditions of time, space, and resources.

As usual, we’ll also open the floor to your questions, success stories, and tales of trouble spots.

We’ll provide refreshments, and don’t forget the drawing for a door prize or two! (You must be present to win.)

FREE and open to the public.
