Let’s Simplify Together: Dedicating Ourselves to Less Stuff and More Purpose    

One hour every Monday for 8 weeks, Oct. 14–Dec. 2 at 6:00–7:00 p.m.

Limited to 25; $45/person for online class (plus $10/book); please register.

Registration is required by October 6, no charge from Plymouth. When you register, we will give you instructions for signing up online at a discount ($44.50) for the online course Uncluttered. The book Downsizing the Family Home by Marni Jameson is available from booksellers. 

This eight–week program helps participants promote a more purpose–driven life by reducing the distraction of unnecessary and unrewarding stuff. Many of us wish we had more freedom from home care––which often is stuff care––because we have too much of it.  We may have higher priorities, but those priorities can get demoted when things take over. This group will help us get going by exploring minimalism as a philosophy, and taking action on decluttering or downsizing, whichever applies to you.

We will:

  • Follow the topics and methods of Uncluttered, an online course by Joshua Becker, with videos, webinars, text and assignments
  • Consider the suggestions and use the resources identified in Downsizing the Family Home by Marni Jameson
  • Support and encourage one another other with ideas and compassion on our paths to less stuff and more purpose

This group is suited to people wanting to live a minimalist lifestyle, declutter for its own sake, repurpose spaces at home (child play areas, office, studio) or downsize (even empty!) a home. You choose the depth and focus. The group intends to support you. Class is facilitated by committed, nonexpert Plymouth members Bonnie Janda (mornings) and Jeanne Schuller (evenings). Audience: Adult
