Publisher's Summary

Döstädning, or the art of death cleaning, is a Swedish phenomenon by which the elderly and their families set their affairs in order.

Whether it's sorting the family heirlooms from the junk, downsizing to a smaller place, or setting up a system to help you stop misplacing your keys, death cleaning gives us the chance to make the later years of our lives as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Whatever your age, Swedish death cleaning can be used to help you de-clutter your life, and take stock of what's important.

Margareta Magnusson has death cleaned for herself and for many others. Radical and joyous, her guide is an invigorating, touching and surprising process that can help you or someone you love immeasurably, and offers the chance to celebrate and reflect on all the tiny joys that make up a long life along the way.

    Story
    "Just what I needed to encourage me to clean for my death"

    With the threat of breast cancer I feel I need to put my house in order out of love for my husband and daughters. I feel reassured after reading this book that this is not morbid but the right and loving thing to do.
    Thanks Juliet, you have brought to the fore many of the worries I already had about leaving a big mess behind.
