You’ve been waiting for the perfect time to start decluttering or downsizing. And now that it’s spring, you’ve got spring cleaning on the brain. You’re finally ready to get started. Ironically, this is when we get into trouble because we become our own worst decluttering enemy. We get excited about what we’re going to do and how we’re going to do it, only to start too big, too fast, and with too high expectations for getting rid of the stuff in our cluttered cupboards, cabinets, and closets. No wonder we fail or lose interest! But, what if there’s a better way? In this 2.5-hour workshop, Dr. Hughes, gives participants the tools they need to successfully complete a spring-cleaning decluttering or downsizing project of their choosing. Every participant will come away with a step-by-step plan suited for their own project based on psychological research and minimalism principles.

Intended Audience: This presentation will benefit anyone interested in reducing the amount of stuff in their life. People who need motivation getting started with their decluttering projects, or those who start projects and don’t finish them, will especially find this presentation useful.

 

Dr. Kelly Kandra Hughes earned her PhD in psychology from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She became fed up with all her stuff after moving three times in four years. With each move, many boxes remained unopened until it was time to move again. Realizing she didn’t need most of what she owned, Kelly gave away, donated, sold, and trashed 95% of her belongings. She has never been healthier or happier. Her writings on minimalism have been featured on websites such as No Sidebar, Tracking Happiness, UpJourney, and The University of Surrey Centre for Environment and Sustainability.
