Current event

Declutter and get organised - sustainable solutions for your 'stuff'

Monday 18 May - 7pm

A FREE webinar with Bridget Johns and Allison Byrne.

Bridget Johns is a declutter coach and life organiser at Be Simply Free. Bridget helps people create systems in their lives to ease their “mental load” and reduce the physical and emotional “clutter” in their homes, calendars and minds so they can move from stress, to less, and live a life of more!

Allison Byrne is the Waste and Recycling Education Officer at City of Marion. Allison will share tips and tricks that make landfill the last option when decluttering your home, shed and garden.

Live event tickets are sold out. REPLAY ONLY tickets are available here.
