Downsizing Your Life for Freedom Flexibility and Financial Peace


Downsizing Your Life for Freedom, Flexibility and Financial Peace
by Claire Middleton

Attention, Baby Boomers and anyone else who’s:

  • Stuck in a rut and wishes for freedom…
  • Unemployed and needs to move to a cheaper place…
  • Overwhelmed and wants to simplify…

…but has too much stuff to go through first.

In Downsizing Your Life for Freedom, Flexibility and Financial Peace, you’ll learn about the joys of the downsized life:

  • Lower personal expenses,
  • Flexibility to move to wherever your career takes you,
  • Clutter-free living, and
  • More time to do what you love to do!

Thanks to the economic downturn, Claire Middleton and her family lost their business and had to sell their spacious home. They sold or gave away more than half of their possessions to comfortably fit into the little house where they now live (quite happily). And they learned that downsizing, even forced downsizing, can be a blessing in disguise.

In Downsizing Your Life for Freedom, Flexibility and Financial Peace, Claire shares her story as well as those of others who learned the truth about possessions and freedom after downsizing their lives (voluntarily or not).

Is your lifetime’s worth of stuff holding you back? Are you missing out on dreams and opportunities because the burden of your possessions weighs you down?

It’s never too late to free yourself! Downsizing Your Life for Freedom, Flexibility and Financial Peace will show you how.

About the Author

Claire Middleton is a freelance writer who learned how to downsize and declutter after moving three times in four years, going from a 5-bedroom house to a tiny ranch, and selling or donating more than half of her family’s possessions in the process. When she’s not writing, she’s usually in the kitchen or the garden.

I’d already been decluttering (how in the world did I acquire so much “stuff” since the last time I moved?) in preparation for making the move to a smaller place, so I felt like I had a pretty good start. I’ve donated or trashed a lot over the past few months. And I’ve avoided impulse shopping for the past several years. But I still have way too much “stuff”, things I never use. I felt stuck though, because some of the items are in great condition and might make a tidy sum if I ever get around to selling them. Reading this book gave me the encouragement to buckle down and do whatever is necessary to further reduce the hold my possessions seem to have on me.The author offers good advice, not only on how to go about downsizing, but some of the reasons why our possessions end up possessing us. The book is well written and easy to read (I finished it in a few hours). I highly recommend this book for anyone who is feeling overwhelmed by clutter or who is simply looking to lighten the load.

This little book has changed my life. I’ve read lots of books and articles on decluttering – goodness knows I need it! – but this is the first book I’ve read that addressed the emotional ties I have with my stuff. Rather than dismissing stuff as bad and feelings as wimpy, the author helped me see that I can be a blessing to others when I use my stuff wisely. I came away feeling challenged and encouraged to be a good steward. I have begun looking at stuff in a new way. Is it blessing me? Am I using it? Can I bless someone else with it? Great book with lots of personal stories and examples. Highly recommended.

This book caught my eye when I was in the middle of a downsizing project. I’ve wanted to pass along unused possessions and organize what I keep. After reading this book, my kitchen cabinets are neat and uncluttered, others are using things that had been sitting around (jello molds anyone?), and best of all, I feel lighter and more at ease. I’m going to keep going. If you’re thinking about it, read this book.It’s a good motivator.

Many good ideas. I liked the stories of real people. Inspired me to toss some things out right away, and I’ve already downsized twice! Once from my short sale on my home then a year later from my daughter’s loft where I lived before moving to my tiny one bedroom apartment.

Henry David Thoreau couldn’t understand why a man would want lots of possessions because he had to carry them around with him all of his life. Claire Middleton agrees. We constantly buy “stuff” at garage sales, knick knack stores, “great” sales, furniture stores, etc. We have that must have chair that we bought and it has sat in the corner for ten years. Two people live in a 2,500 sq. ft. house and use 1,000 sq. ft. of the space. A family of four has 38 coffee mugs. The garage contains everything except a car. You understand. Claire teaches you how to get out of this trap. Buy the book. It’ll free up your life.
