I’m a member of the SW Vermont Hoarding Task Force in Rutland, VT. I recently purchased your book and am about halfway through it, as it was recommended by Kate Tibbs, who is the head of the Task Force and administers the hoarding assistance effort at BROC/Community Action of SW Vermont. We both wondered if there would be any chance of your coming to Rutland to talk about the book as we are continually looking for ways to increase awareness about hoarding behaviors.
Hi Glenn- sure! I’ll send you an email. If for some reason that doesn’t work, you can send me a message via my author page on Facebook (Eve O. Schaub)- catch up with you soon!
Congrats on the Hell Room progress! Keep up the good work. I’ve enjoyed your audiobook, Year of No Clutter. You’ve a great sense of humor.
All my elementary school papers are still in my parents’ attic. Sadly, only the silverfish (insects) have checked them out in the last 20+ years…
Tina- Oh I’m so glad you’re enjoying the audiobook- and it’s nice to know that I’m not the only one who has all those old papers!! In my case I’m a little afraid to check the attic and see whether the mice have made a nice little house out of them… but I know the day will come when I will get to it. Any decade now.
I’m just listening to your book, as an audiobook, and I’m recognizing me in so many ways. Thank you for your perspectives on clutter, hoarding, storing, documenting, memorializing and more. You are right, my kids don’t want to see my fifth grade report card, or any other school record of mine. Stuff has a shelf life. You nailed it. Congratulations on your writing, and your success in the hellroom. (Mine is called the black hole!) All the best on your next challenge. ~Doris
Thank you Doris! Often I find it so helpful just to hear that someone else out there is thinking about things very much the way I am- that was one of my big hopes for this book, that there were many out there just like me, struggling just as I was. Best of luck with the Black Hole- I have great confidence you can tackle it- if I can, YOU can!!
