TMC General Meeting, Lunch and Operation Cookie / Candy
March 1, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
With spring just around the corner, would you like to get a head start on your cleanup plans? If you’ve put off controlling the clutter that’s accumulated over the winter months, cleaning out closets, and sorting through old papers, now is an ideal time to hear Jamie Novak, who will discuss familiar challenges to clean ups and how to overcome them without stressing! Her talk, “Keep This, Toss That”, will be given at 10 am on Thursday, March 1, 2018, at the Madison Community House, 25 Cook Avenue, Madison. This lecture is free and the public is cordially invited to attend. If you choose to stay for lunch; lunch will be served by our Catering Dept. Please RVSP to Sharon @ 973-520-8087 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Lunch will be $20.00 payable at the door.
If even the thought of doing more than keeping up with clutter is stressful, Jamie, a professional organizer with twenty years of experience, will encourage you to get more organized using what her audiences describe as humorous, non-judgmental, and warm suggestions. Rather than a ‘one strategy fits all’ approach, as a recent bestselling book prescribes, she will help you to find your style and work with it. “I’ve got the answers to how to find the time and energy to get you started,” she explains.
Novak has appeared on HGTV and QVC as a featured organizer. She has also published books including Keep This, Toss That, Bite Size Living, and The Get Organized Answer Book, as well as contributing articles for “Organize” magazine. The overriding theme of all her work is: “More space, more time, more joy.”
Of course, there will be times when you don’t want to make bad decisions about throwing things out or giving things away, only later to feel guilt or uncertainty. Or some things may be kept ‘just in case’. Novak explains that these commonly held feelings often lead to procrastination. If this describes your current state of mind, plan to attend this enlightening and encouraging presentation. Her talk will be followed by a question and answer period.
Following our meeting, members will be filling containers for seniors and area nursing homes with homemade cookies and candy. This is our Annual Operation Cookie / Candy.
