In the News - Preventing Clutter by Sharing Stuff

Thank you Nancy Shohet West for including ClutterClarity in this wonderful article about another innovative way Americans are coming together to share our abundance.

 

“Library of Things is part of the Sharing Economy, a growing trend to counter the cost and consequences of excessive or mindless accumulation that has cluttered homes and polluted our planet. The Library of Things demonstrates that Americans are shifting their deeply held belief of isolation and independence to one of connection and interdependence.”
 -- Laura Moore, ClutterClarity LLC


Need a cake pan? Try the ‘Library of Things’

 
By Nancy Shohet West | GLOBE CORRESPONDENT  OCTOBER 26, 2018

Stopping by the library? No need to limit yourself to books and a DVD or two. While you’re there, consider whether you have any short-term use for a novelty cake pan, a jigsaw puzzle, a food dehydrator, a label maker, a trowel, a guitar, or a telescope.

Books remain at the crux of any public library’s collection, but such institutions are starting to think far outside the box when it comes to patrons’ needs, as demonstrated when the Boston Public Library earlier this month launched an initiative to lend out mobile WiFi hotspots, portable devices that provide Internet access by tracking signals from cell towers.

In the suburbs, library-goers are discovering everything from musical instruments to household tools in newly eclectic collections, which are commonly referred to as a “Library of Things.”

According to Kristi Chadwick of the Massachusetts Library System, a state-supported collaborative that provides services to libraries throughout the state, the concept began decades ago with art prints. “But what it has evolved into is finding ways for libraries to support their communities in ways they did not traditionally do by looking at the needs of the community in areas beyond literacy,” she said.

As many area librarians who oversee Library of Things collections see it, the items essentially fall into two broad categories: items that will be used only rarely, such as a novelty cake pan or a label maker; or try-before-you-buy items that a prospective consumer might want to test-drive before purchasing, such as a video camera or a musical instrument.

Brilliant Solution to Clothes Clutter - Rent, Return, Share


Rent the Runway is another great example of how Americans are preventing clutter accumulation and financial waste. It's all part of the fast-growing trend of the Sharing Economy   

My New York City client raves about this service.

Real Life ClutterClarity Story
Rose called me up after watching my videos on the ClutterClarity YouTube channel. She had lost a lot of weight, had more to lose, and was getting married in just a few months! Rose wanted to "make room for her fiancé!" (Just love that.)  Weekly phone coaching sessions helped her learn how to declutter her overstuffed clothes closet with ease - in the limited time that she had. While on the phone together, Rose went through her clothes, one category at a time. With all the wedding plans, our collaboration expanded to include emotional and time management skill-building so she could organize/manage her to-do lists and calendar without feeling overwhelmed. Only when she sent me gorgeous wedding photos did I see the magnificent woman I had the privilege of working with. 


Rent the Runway
Rose loves looking great every day. With Rent the Runway, she could click her heels down the sidewalk, free of worry. Brilliantly, as she lost 60 pounds, she rented (and returned) clothes and the special dresses for her wedding events. She saved tons of money and time, and prevented impulsive shopping in stores. Her husband is really happy, too! All the money that would have gone into clothes is money saved for their new house. Our collaboration now shifts to helping her navigate house hunting and moving. A happy, uncluttered ending to a storybook wedding.
