It seems as though not a day goes by that we don't think about money. We cut back on spending. We chase a bargain. We try to save more. We strive to use less credit. We worry about funding our retirement and our children's education. Yet we continue to spend money on things that don't matter. The author knows that money and debt can overwhelm your life even faster than clutter, and he has a plan to help deal with that emotional and financial chaos. His previous bestselling books inspired us to successfully evict the clutter in our homes, on our bodies, and in six key areas of our lives. But for many people, clearing the clutter suddenly exposes deeper issues, financial, physical, and emotional. Sometimes our problems are not really about the physical stuff but about the emotional fabric of our lives, from our relationships with money to our relationships with people and even how we define and find happiness. In this work, the author demonstrates that this reassessment of priorities is a great opportunity to examine our lives and circumstances and to make the changes necessary to focus on the things that really matter. Exploring the real source of happiness, he offers a clear strategy for finding the delicate balance between what we have, what we need, and what we want or feel entitled to. With three unique audits that cover every aspect of our well being, he takes us step by step through sizing up not just our possessions and financial statements but also our thoughts, goals, use of time and energy, and even our innermost sources of tension. He then shows us how to embrace the changes we've experienced, set a new path for the future, and come to accept that living on less can feel and be so much richer. This book instructs how to: Change the way you and your family measure happiness, Face your financial situation and set realistic priorities, Create space for what really matters, Plan realistically for financial and emotional security, Be happier with less. His plan will help you achieve personal balance that brings happiness and the courage to choose a rewarding life over the mindless pursuit of more stuff.This book offers a road map to creating a less-is-more life, and teaches readers how a life of less can actually be a life of great abundance. Features three audits designed to instigate life changes: a financial audit combined with assessments of the physical junk filling your homes and the emotional junk causing tension in your life.… (més)

A delightful, easy to read, self-help book about the relationship of clutter in our lives to our lives. Walsh shows how "stuff" in our bodies, relationships, and homes are all related and how to get rid of it. I especially enjoyed the occasional letter he printed from someone who had "downsized", either voluntarily or involuntarily, and the effect it had on their life.

If you know anyone who may "need" a nudge in cleaning up or someone who loves to watch "Hoarders", then this book is for them. ( )

"Clutter--no matter if it's in your home, your head, or your heart--is anything that gets between you and the life you want to be living."~Peter Walsh, Lighten Up, p. 184. This quote sort of sums up the book for me. It isn’t the traditional “how to get organized” guide. “…it’s planning for the full happy life you want to live.” (italics author’s). In Chapter one you define the life that you really do want to live; you define your vision for your life. We get clear about what we want, people. Otherwise, he says, don’t bother reading the book at all; it won’t help you to have a road map to nowhere. Peter asks you to “take a personal audit” about what really makes you happy. Take stock to figure out where we have been/are/going. You must undergo the uncomfortable (for some of us) process of focusing on yourself. Identify the source(s) of tension in your life and then make a plan to address it (them). This book differs from his others (the titles of which he mentions often in this book) because the focus is on financial clutter and he includes plenty of checklists and worksheets to help support you in your efforts to change, as well as to get the family on board. Peter maintains that if you take just 10 minutes twice (or even once) a day to organize/declutter one small area of your house (kitchen counter, bathroom counter, dresser, junk drawer) that it will really add up to big changes in your life. Ultimately, Peter wants us to create space in our lives for what really matters by clearing out what really doesn’t. I liked this book well enough. Where Peace and Plenty by Susan Ban Breathnach (Book 58: http://raisingmaine.mainetoday.com//blogentry.html?id=57752) provided emotional support for women facing a dramatic downturn in their finances, Lighten Up provides tools and direction for redesigning your cluttered-by-financial-woes life. Both are of value. ( )
