UF/IFAS Extension offers ‘De-Clutter Your Life’ Program in Lady Lake

RELEASE DATE: January 22, 2015

LADY LAKE –  The University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) Extension in Lake County will present “De-Clutter Your Life,” a free program to be held from 1- 2:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 26 at the Lady Lake Public Library, located at 225 W. Guava St. in Lady Lake.

A cluttered home can also be a dangerous home. According to the Centers for Disease Control, one out of three adults aged 65 or older falls each year. Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries.

“Disorganization and clutter can waste time, cost money, cause stress and increase the risk of falling,” said Julie England, Family & Consumer Sciences Extension Agent with the UF/IFAS Extension in Lake County, who is presenting the class. “Clutter is caused when items are left in one place or moved around the home but never organized, used or discarded. The ‘De-clutter Your Life’ program will help people get organized, find places for their stuff, and develop a personal clear the clutter strategy.”

A bonus, says England, is that getting rid of clutter can eliminate 40 percent of housework in the average home, according to a report by the National Soap and Detergent Association.
