Yuzu gave two presentations at the North Suburban YMCA entitled “Breaking Up is Hard to Do – De-Cluttering and Feeling Good About It” where she instructed participants about how to “break up” with belongings that are crowding their spaces and with which they have a clinging relationship. Everyone who attended her presentations gave positive feedback about Yuzu’s gentle, caring approach and thoughtful implementation of the process of getting organized and de-cluttering.
In her discussion it was clear that she understands that one of the most difficult organizing tasks is parting with belongings with which one has emotional ties and she gave thoughtful suggestions to make parting with those belongings easier. For example, Yuzu suggested taking a picture of something you’re struggling to let go of and then giving that object to someone whom you care about so that they can develop a relationship with it. As a result, you de-clutter, you have fond memories and a link to the object and someone else now enjoys it - a win-win all the way around.
