The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning

by- Margareta Magnusson


The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning (2018) is a useful guide through the process of taking stock of your life's possessions and getting rid of the items you don't need and that may cause problems for your loved ones. This is especially true as you age and confront mortality. Instead of burdening your children with the task of sorting and disposing, you may take control with death cleaning, which has the extra benefit of allowing you to appreciate a lifetime's worth of memories at your speed.
