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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! August 4, 2014
I Really enjoyed this book. I recently downsized and needed to reaffirm our decision. We love our Smallhouse and the freedom that it affords us. I do however need to do some more cleaning up of possessions and needed a bit of a pep talk. This book did that for me.

I like the authors way of sharing her experiences and the experiences of others. I learned a lot from her.

This book gives you a lot to think about especially when you are at the stage of downsizing, ie the kids have left home and the house is too big for one person. Do we really need as much or is more just adding to our everyday stress. When you work you have enough to deal with therefore a smaller house means you don’t have to deal with just as much at home. You only feel guilty for not doing stuff when you know it has to be done. I also like Claire’s style of writing very much.
