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.

The truth is, you CAN finally free yourself of clutter while keeping your most treasured belongings. Claire and her family gave up more than half their possessions when they downsized from their large family home to a much smaller house.

In this book, she spells out the steps a sentimental person can take to reduce their clutter while keeping their memories intact.
