We've got more workshops up our sleeves! First up: join us January 22 at @moonpalacebooks, where we'll be going over downsizing strategies with baby boomers in mind. During this 'tell it to me straight' info session, we'll explain the current market for secondhand goods, discuss the unique opportunities and challenges that present for members of The Greatest Generation, and explain what’s likely to happen at each phase of the downsizing process. You'll leave the event with a clear understanding of the stages involved, solutions for each stage, and a list of resources, contacts, and strategies intended to help you keep as many of your treasures out of the trash as possible. In alignment with this offering, we're also hosting a workshop we're calling "The Dreaded Inheritance." This one's aimed at the folks who are facing a daunting occasion: inheriting a family member's lifetime accumulation of stuff. We’ll offer a new paradigm for the possession and divestment of material goods, explain the current market for secondhand items, discuss the unique opportunities and challenges that present for those with close connections to aging family members, and provide resources to help you and your sibs empty that house with or without the property’s primary resident involved. This one's happening January 30th at @urbanforagewinery Get your tickets here: www.shopjunket.com/events/classes-events

Thanks to everyone who came out to tonight’s #climateadaptation workshop (and thanks for the great class requests, too- we are *SO* excited to get planning!).
We want to share a huge thanks, also, to our friends at @thefixstudio for opening their space for this event tonight— they contribute to our community in ways that often go unnoticed...if you’ve never been, you owe it to yourself to stop in for coffee and conversation (if not for a free first class)... ...

Clippy may be gone from Microsoft Office, but the endearing, albeit distracting, virtual assistant is certainly not forgotten. For many people, tossing a paperclip after a single use is second nature, and Americans' buying habits reflect that. Folks in the US purchase 11 billion new paperclips every year, requiring 5,500 tons of steel that in turn emit nearly 17,000 tons of CO2. That’s the equivalent of driving around the world in a standard passenger car over 1,400 times. Whew! Yet another reason to choose secondhand. Want a real life Clippy of your own?
