Do Your Family a Favor – Declutter Before It’s Too Late!

AARP is having an 8-week Clutter Challenge lead by decluttering expert Ciji Ware, author of Rightsizing Your Life: Simplifying Your Surroundings While Keeping What Matters Most. Although the second week has just ended, you can still join in. All you’ve missed so far is Paper, Part 1 and Dead Electronics, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to catch up.

An interesting thread was recently started by one of the challenge members – "Consider decluttering by giving things away to family/friends before you expire." Have you thought about this? It actually makes a lot of sense and would be oh so appreciated by those left behind.

Do you have items that you’d like to pass along to specific people? Why not now? How much simpler would life be if you could shed yourself of excess possessions? Start freeing yourself and your space today! What are you waiting for?

If you're interested in Ms. Ware's book, I've included an Amazon link. I have an Amazon Affiliate account so if you buy one by clicking on this link, I’ll get a little kickback. But if you'd just like to read it rather than own it, check your local library or ask around - a friend or family member may already have copy that you could borrow.
