Downsizing the Family Home

Downsizing the Family Home by Marni Jameson comes highly recommended by a patron who just cleaned out her parents’ house. It is a very practical guide. She writes about the power objects have because of the memories associated with them. She encourages making sorting and clearing out what you no longer use, need or love a part of the present, rather than postponing it and making the task a burden on loved ones in the future. “Don’t leave your kids or relatives with a job that requires an archeologist, a bulldozer and smelling salts.”
