BURIED IN TREASURES
is a self-help, education and support group for people who hoard or clutter.
Would you like to learn tips on how to de‐clutter and stop overacquiring from people who know what it’s like? Join us for this group created by and for people who are ready to live a life less‐cluttered!
Each week we either introduce a new skill from the book, Buried in Treasures, or discuss a topic that is important and interesting to the group. We’ll also check‐in with our individual progress, challenges, successes, and goals.
When a group is formed, we meet almost weekly at 6:00 pm central time and conclude after 12 sessions. New groups form each January and July.
Cost for the group is $150 and we maintain confidentiality.
Please contact Susan to register for the next group which will begin January 9, 2016. Meetings are on Monday nights at 84 Fairway Drive, Donelson Heights UMC, at 6:00 pm.
