Keep the Memories, Lose the Stuff:

Declutter, Downsize, and

Move Forward with Your Life


Matt Paxton 

Your boxes of photos, family’s china, and even the kids' height charts aren’t just stuff; they’re attached to a lifetime of memories--and letting them go can be scary. With empathy, expertise, and humor, Keep the Memories, Lose the Stuff helps you sift through years of clutter, let go of what no longer serves you, and identify the items worth keeping so that you can focus on living in the present. For over 20 years, Matt Paxton has been helped people from all walks of life who want to live more simply declutter and downsize. Featured on Hoarders and host of Legacy List with Matt Paxton on PBS. Whether you’re tired of living with clutter, making space for a loved one, or moving to a smaller home or retirement community, this book is for you.
