SHREDDING THE JOY: What We Lose When De-Cluttering Goes Too Far

Taylor headshotAccording to the minimalist movement, less is more. In theory, throwing out the past gives us more happiness than keeping it. Except that, so often, our sense of identity can be tied up in those piles of family documents and photographs. Join your friends at the Little Compton Historical Society to hear what Maureen Taylor, the nationally-known Photo Detective, has to say about preserving family histories in light of today’s de-cluttering trend. Learn how to tackle those piles without fear and what can happen when some are family items are kept rather than tossed.
