Extension offers programs
A free ‘How to Shop in Your Closet’ program will be held Friday, Nov. 30 at 10 a.m. at the Anderson County Extension Office. ‘Learn how to update your look by changing or combining items currently in your closet and/or adding simple changes or accessories,’ event organizers said in a press release. ‘Most people wear 20 percent of their clothing 80 percent of the time. Save dollars as you use more of your clothes and spend less on new items.’ Register by calling the Anderson County Extension Office at 502-839-7271.
$parkle$ is another program which may be of interest as you get ready for the holidays.  Does your home need a bit of attention in the cleaning department?  Do you feel a bit overwhelmed at where to start?  Has clutter taken its last stand at your house?  Learn how to make your house look great again and make your own cleaning products and save money.  The second session is on how to make your money stretch for the month.  The free two part class is scheduled for Friday afternoons in December and repeated on Tuesday nights in January.  Call the Anderson County Extension Office at 502-839-7271 for registration information.
