Benefits News--COLLECTORS, PACK RATS, HOARDERS, oh my!

Human ResourcesApr 17, 2014

Time for your annual Spring Cleaning!!  Your Employee Assistance Program (EAP) benefit can help you eliminate clutter from your home.

COLLECTORS, PACK RATS, HOARDERS, oh my!

These words are often used to describe people who have a difficult time throwing things away.  Instead of clearing old, unessential and outdated goods and materials from their homes, they allow piles to grow and dust to gather on items, papers and furniture that have not been used in years. There are things you can do to avoid becoming a pack rat.  Log in to EAP's Guidance Resources Online and search "Spring Cleaning" for great articles like "Eliminating Clutter for Your Home," "Understanding Hoarder Disorder" and "Spring Cleaning for Your Everday Life." And check out other great resources while you're there.
