Featured Education Program: Kelly Brask and Caroline Guntur, From IKEA to Death Cleaning: Swedish Concepts in Organizing
Featured Education Program:
This fun session will take a look at popular Swedish organizing topics and break down their history and significance. You’ve heard of Swedish death cleaning, but do you know how to do it? You love those cubic shelving units from IKEA, but do you know how to pronounce them, or hack them? What does “lagom” mean? Learn the answers to these questions and more with NAPO Chicago’s very own Swedes, Caroline and Kelly.
