Tuesdays/Thursdays 9:30–11:30am NR Clutter Buster Support Group Clutter Busters is a support group for hoarders, clutterers and cre- ative messy people. If you have too much 'stuff,' Clutter Buster meetings will offer a way to help you get in control of your living space. Clutter Busters is not a class, we use a support group format. Using a self-help book study method, you will gain insight and motivation toward over- coming hoarding and disorganization. Members are encouraged to share recent efforts to overcome clutter and hoarding in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental and supportive atmosphere. Facilitated by Keith Collingwood.
