Sudbury Senior Center hosting "Buried in Treasures" cluttering support workshops beginning in May
By Douglas Flynn / April 20, 2016

Do you avoid having people over because of the cluttered state of your home? Do you have trouble getting rid of your stuff? Do you buy more than you actually need?

The Sudbury Senior Center, in conjunction with Marlborough Community Development Corporation, will offer Peer Group Support Meetings beginning in May for "Buried in Treasures," a Cluttering Support Workshop.

Research shows that working through the book, "Buried in Treasures" in a structured group is one of the most effective ways to address cluttering behaviors.

There will be a Peer Group Information Session on Monday, May 2 at 10 a.m., then Peer Group Support Meetings will be held each Monday from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. from May 16 to September 26.

At the information session, Lorraine Gilmore will present "Full House: A Hoarder's Journey." During the one-hour session, she will share her journey, her struggles and which strategies helped her. Please call 978-443-3055 to sign up for the info session.

Participation in the Peer Group Support Meetings is free, but the book "Buried in Treasures" costs $20 and is required for participation. Scholarships may be available. For more information, please call Anne Manning, LMHC at 978-639-3268.
