The Gentle Art Of Swedish Death Cleaning by Margareta Magnusson is, in her words, 'aged between 80 and 100'.
Swedish-born Margareta is now based in Stockholm, but has lived all over the world and a graduate of Beckman College of Design. When her husband died, she had to downsize her home and was forced to recognise the power of 'death-cleaning' and the concerns that must be addressed to do it with thought and care.
This charming, practical book will guide you in making the process uplifiting rather than overwhelming: it focuses on the importance of living - even through death-cleaning.From clothes and books to stuff you just can't get rid of, stuff that only matters to you, this title offers indispensable advice on questions you will inevitably face when sorting through a lifetime of objects: How do you deal with your secrets? Tackle photographs and letters? Avoid heirs fighting over your belongings after you are gone? Done well, the approach not only makes things easier for your loved ones later on, it allows you to revisit the lifetimes of memories accumulated with your things.
