Reviews

"Pragmatic... the idea in this system is that we should leave behind as little as possible, or at least, not the many thousands of items of junk that Americans often accumulate." --W Magazine "Don't let the macabre name fool you - death-cleaning is intended to be an uplifting experience... if you're not sure you can cross Sweden off your bucket-list in your lifetime, at least you can take on the concept of death-cleaning." --Lonely Planet "Has benefits you can enjoy while you're still very much alive... could be a good way for families to discuss sensitive issues that might otherwise be hard to bring up." --TIME "A really smart way to get organized, while simultaneously helping your kids out in a major way." --Hellogiggles.com "A slim yet sage volume... While Japanese item-control diva Marie Kondo gave us strict instructions to only keep things that spark joy, Magnusson's book is straightforward and unsentimental (with a bit of humor). The main message from this mother of five is: Take responsibility for your items and don't leave them as a burden for family and friends." --The Washington Post "Sure, it sounds morbid, but it's actually a pretty smart idea. Death cleaning isn't about getting rid of all your stuff, but rather streamlining your life so you're only holding onto what makes you happy . . . it's about so much more than dusting and sorting." --Elle Decor "Anyone who is aging or has aging parents has a dog in this fight . . . The nice thing about Magnusson's instructions is that her book is also about taking charge of your life for yourself, while you're living . . . a peaceful, organized way to settle your affairs." --Lifehacker "Keep only what you love and what makes you happy in the moment. It's like Marie Kondo, but with an added sense of the transience and futility of this mortal existence." --The New York Post "If you love Marie Kondo, Swedish Death Cleaning may be for you . . . feels especially relevant these days... The idea of death cleaning is to simply organize your everyday life to make it run more smoothly. People of any age can benefit from that!" --The Kitchn "A slim yet sage volume... Magnusson's book is straightforward and unsentimental (with a bit of humor). The main message from this mother of five is: Take responsibility for your items and don't leave them as a burden for family and friends." --The Washington Post "Magnusson shares solid guiding principles for organizing your home, no matter your age or life circumstance." --Business Insider
