Get Organized Deb LawrenceIf you’re contemplating downsizing or simply need help with organizing your “stuff,” don’t miss Debra Lawrence’s encouraging talk. She’s president of the National Professional Organizers Association, whose mission is to bring order and efficiency to people’s lives. Yes, there really is such an organization, and it has more than 3,500 members worldwide!

Lawrence will share easy techniques to reduce clutter and keep your furniture and countertop surfaces blissfully clear. Here’s a mantra you might like: “Clear countertops, clearer brain!” Try it on for size. It feels really good.

If you’re considering moving to a villa, Robson Reserve or another small place, Lawrence has time-tested, constructive approaches on how to differentiate between items filled with family memories that should join you in your next home and those items that might be just perfect for someone in need. HINT: Your kids probably don’t have room for or want your mother’s china, your grandmother’s silver, or your many other memory-filled mementoes, either.

Whether you're moving to a new home or need to unclutter your present one, you’ll learn techniques to let items go and be eager to live more simply.
