Bullet Journal

Tuesday, January 7
10:30 – 12:30 PM

If you struggle to stay organized, write yourself “reminders” only to misplace them, or find that planning and keeping track of everything takes more time than you’d like, it’s time to learn about Bullet Journals.

Combining the functions of a to-do-list, a planner, and a diary, a bullet journal or ‘bujo’ (concept conceived by designer Ryder Carroll) is a simple, efficient, and intuitive method for managing everything going on in your life with minimal time and effort. Start the New Year off right with a Bullet Journal! The first hour of this workshop will be dedicated to learning the ins and outs of bullet journaling followed by an hour to design and start your very own Bujo! We will have supplies available to get you started but feel free to bring a journal and favorite pen.

Closets and Clutter Hotspots: Saturday

Saturday, January 18
1 – 3 PM

During this two hour workshop, Professional Organizer Tammy Martell will present her tips and tricks to organizing any closet and talk about the clutter hot spots that magically appear in our homes. Tammy will give sensible guidance on how to finally keep these areas organized!
