Clear Your Clutter and Prosper

Have you ever asked yourself these common clutter questions:

  • Where do I start de-cluttering and what can I do about it?
  • How do I deal with the piles of mail and magazines?
  • What do I do if my family is the clutter problem?
  • What if I am too lazy to deal with my clutter?

In this workshop you will receive tips, goals and ways to get started. You will learn the relationship between prosperity and clutter and the emotional, physical and spiritual effects of clutter. You will also discover what clutter means in terms of Feng Shui and the creation of Feel Good Spaces.

Don’t worry…we’ll have fun with the topic as we learn and laugh together about the real issues of physical or emotional clutter and how to resolve them.
