Marni Jameson | Downsizing the Family Home | Book Review by Lisa Woodruff
On Mondays, I will be posting a podcast recording of previously recorded book reviews. These are books that have impacted me that I want to share with you. In May, the Organize 365 book reviews will focus on estate planning and home organizing. My first book to review is Downsizing The Family Home: What to Save, What to Let Go by Marni Jameson.
Marni wrote this book as she was clearing out her family estate after the loss of her parents. I loved how practical this book was! She shared real, logical thoughts and her process for dealing with all of the stuff. The most profound suggestion in the book is to focus on what to keep, not what to let go. This was especially helpful when Emily and I settled our Dad’s estate. The book also led us through unpacking the memory behind the items. This book also helped me to understand the actual monetary value of the stuff left in the house.
If you are anticipating settling an estate or downsizing, I highly recommend reading this book soon!
