Contents Death cleaning is not sad -- Death cleaning is as much (or more!) for you as for the people who come after.
Summary In Sweden there is a kind of decluttering called d©œst©Þdning, d©œ meaning "death" and st©Þdning meaning "cleaning." Margareta instructs readers to embrace minimalism, and suggests which possessions you can easily get rid of (unworn clothes, unwanted presents, more plates than you'd ever use) and which you might want to keep (photographs, love letters, a few of your children's art projects). Digging into her late husband's tool shed, and her own secret drawer of vices, Margareta introduces an element of fun to a potentially daunting task. Along the way readers get a glimpse into her life in Sweden, and also become more comfortable with the idea of letting go.
