[Event] Green Drinks: Minimalism, Refurbishment & Recirculation
With Chinese New Year around the corner, it is a time for many to declutter and decide between keeping, throwing and giving away. This month, we have professional organiser, Nathalie Ricaud of Get Organised & Beyond, Farah Sanwari of Repair Kopitiam, and Agatha Lee of Green Issues by Agy. This session is sponsored by Workcentral.
The Decluttering Journey

Whether we realise it or not, clutter takes a toll on our lives, from a time, financial but also emotional standpoint. But letting go doesn’t come easily to most people. Learn about the benefits of decluttering and the options to dispose of your stuff to trigger the start of your decluttering journey.
