"Sorting through a lifetime's worth of accumulated possessions can be a daunting and stressful process that millions of Americans confront every year. The need to downsize often arises at a momentous life change, whether you're an empty nester or retiree selling your family home, a newlywed blending your households, or you're cleaning out your parents' property after they've moved into assisted living or passed away. Decluttering guru Peter Walsh knows the difficulty of downsizing firsthand. Along with six of his siblings, he went through the process of downsizing his family home and dividing his late parents' possessions. He realized that making these decisions about mementos and heirlooms creates strong emotions and sometimes sibling rivalries. After this experience, he downsized his own home. Peter doesn't see downsizing as a difficult chore, rather, it's a freeing, rejuvenating process. Now, in Let It Go, you'll access Peter's many tips and practical takeaways, such as how to: Understand the emotional challenges that accompany downsizing. Create strategies for working with your spouse, adult kids, or siblings without drama. Calculate the amount of stuff you can bring into your new life. Identify the objects that will bring you real happiness, and the rest that you should let go Peter will walk you through every step of the process and show you how to use downsizing as a positive experience that sets you up to better enjoy the opportunities that the next phase in your life will offer.

Full disclosure: I have not read this book, but my mother has and it has SAVED what would have been a disastrous move. After almost 30 years in the same house, my parents are moving across country and Peter Walsh is the reason I still have my sanity.
Throughout the book, he offers practical wisdom that tackles a lot of the big pitfalls of downsizing, #1 emotionally charged items. Through several different angles, he really helps move you from being totally attached to being able to let go and keep the things that really matter. It was a huge thing for my mom to throw out a "treasure" that she had kept for 60 years that held a deeply traumatic memory.
The "treasure map" was really helpful in helping my parents sort out what a "treasure" really is and what's just junk with vague memories attached.

Highly recommend if you are considering a move or downsizing or even if you're in the middle of one. Makes such a difference! ( )

Irritating. Walsh tried to psychologize without a license. Not helpful.

In recent years, books in the decluttering-tidying up genre have flooded the popular memes of the day. I've read the advice in least 6 different books. This narrative presented one of the most sensible, philosophically easiest viewpoints to adapt to my particular decluttering project (much of our house was "stuffed" to the rafters). And that's a key insight: I think one needs to read several of these titles in order to shift your thinking so that you can accept 'letting go' and learn how best to make those downsizing decisions.

Walsh's book is especially effective in addressing downsizing under difficult circumstances such as moving aged parents out of their familiar home or coping with all the angst after a death in the family. For me, the very wise counsel in terms of nostalgic collections and out-of-date furniture were real gems of philosophy into what I needed to at least acknowledge in order to make decisions. The tone of the whole book was a gentle approach to gaining a good insight to the Western world's penchant for too many inherited 'treasures'. ( )
