    I d read Dellaquila s book years ago, but realized recently that I recommend it so often that I should reread and review it here Note My copy is the 2007 original edition pictured above There is a 2017 released 2nd edition In the interest of full disclosure, as a professional organizer, the author is a colleague of mine, but rather than giving me bias in this regard, I believe it gives me a better sense of the validity of the advice she provides I can also tell you that this is the first book in a small stack that I recommend to people who tell me that their seniors parents need to downsize and move and are resisting the entire idea or that they want to move but are procrastinating on the very frustrating part, reducing the immense clutter of a lifetime in one home Don t Toss My Memories in the Trash offers a step by step process for tackling the emotional and practical obstacles to downsizing and making a move to a smaller space or senior living First, she covers the very necessary discussion of deciding to move in the first place, and the associated issues of not only persuading seniors to do so, but also easing the process and identifying options.The part of the book I like best, because it dovetails with my area of expertise, is the section on h...

    If you are a person of a certain age and you or your parents are thinking of moving to a smaller, manageable place, this is the how to book for you Vickie Dellaquila, a professional organizer, gives you tips, checklists, and floor plans you can use to figure out how much of your old furniture will fit into the new place When she says a step by step guide, she means it And it s not a canned recitation, either She knows that for one person, going room by room and throwing things out as you go may work For another, it may be necessary to organize belongings by the period of your life they fit, or by the people they bring to mind, and only then make the decision Keep, Pass, or Toss Sometimes she calls the Toss option donating it to the dumpster As the title implies, this book shows recognition of and empathy for the emotional side of moving not only for the seniors, but for their children as well Chapter 7 Decreased Possessions, Increased Emotions, is the heart of the book Read it and you may suddenly realize why you and your out of town brother have been fighting over your parents moveor why you are grateful to you daughter but wish she would stop trying to boss you around You are not alone These dynamics occur in ever...

    BOTTOM LINE subtitle is misleading, appears to be directed to all seniors yet is mainly concerned with middle class and wealthier folks who have owned and lived in their homes for a long time and are now moving into smaller apartments than their family homes Does not have applicable info for poor seniors who are simply moving into smaller and smaller apartments or single rooms due to cost of living Not a bad book, indeed likely a fairly good one IF it concerns you or those you love Possibly a decent guide or beginning point for families of seniors who are reluctant to give up their long owned homes and drastically change their living situations to assisted living and suchlike, but doesn t apply at all to me, hence the dnf designation Seems to be mainly slanted to younger, fairly wealthy readers needing info to move their parents to assisted living spaces or suchlike, all of them downsizing from nice big homes into goodly sized apartments I ve only lived in apartments, alas, and usually small ones at that Lots of folks like me need a book like this There are many elde...

    This was ok, but I found all the stories used to illustrate the issues ended up jumbling the text I kept feeling derailed as I tried to read it.
