Organizer offers spring cleaning course

Spring has long been connected with rebirth, rejuvenation and renewal, and with the end of another dark, wet winter it makes sense to put away the old and make room for the new.

With the arrival of spring you may have the desire to clear out your cupboards and freshen up your home.

If you risk a head injury when you open the hall closet, you will benefit from attending Spring Clean your Closets, a three-hour workshop with professional organizer Alison Roberts.

Roberts is passionate about the benefits of getting organized.

“If our space has become cluttered with crumpled clothing and unfinished projects, these items can form a physical barrier that prevents new opportunities from coming into our lives,” she explains.

In addition, she recognizes that we often keep items out of guilt or obligation or with the belief that they might come in handy one day.

By examining our possessions and reassessing what still has value in our lives, we can determine what we should toss, trade or treasure.

The results: an increase in personal energy, more creativity and perhaps even more wealth or improved health. If you are low on energy and short on closet space you will want to attend this engaging presentation.

Learn the top-10 clutter clearing strategies and walk away with the motivation to let go and grow.

The Women’s Resource Centre (1491 McPhee Ave.) is hosting Roberts on April 6 from 1 to 4 p.m. Light refreshments will be served and seating is limited, so pre-register by calling 250-338-1133.
