Michael D’Ostilio presented the Decluttering Workshop on January 21, 2020 to celebrate Helping Hands volunteers of the Celebrate Del Webb Community at their quarterly meeting in Fredericksburg, Virginia. The thirty-eight volunteers attending the workshop listened attentively to Mike as he shared how our "stuff" is important to us, but our children for the most part do not want it. What they want are the stories behind the "stuff". He also gave tips on how to declutter our homes by donating and/or selling the items. Also, the audience gave examples of what they did to dispose of their "stuff".
