Lighter Living: Declutter. Organize. Simplify.

Lighter Living

Declutter. Organize. Simplify

Clearing clutter is much more than cleaning out a closet crammed with things or getting rid of the contents of boxes piled in your basement, attic, or storage unit. Most of us have unfinished business that might make us feel like we walk around dragging a heavy ball with a chain connected to our ankle. When you declutter and possibly downsize, you can free yourself of weighty matters that tie you down physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Lighter Living explains why you might want to simplify your home and your life. It shows you how to declutter and then organize what you keep. Finally, you are given a vision for lifelong decluttering and how it can lead to well-being and peace of mind.

Editorial Reviews

“Lighter Living is an inspirational self-help book full of humble advice for clearing the clutter so that you can better see what truly matters.”

“Call it simple living, minimalism, or “tidying up.” Whatever you call it, getting rid of stuff is enjoying a cultural moment. Author Lisa Shultz offers a personal take on the process of paring down with Lighter Living: Declutter. Organize. Simplify, a thoughtfully written and organized addition to a subset of self-help books that is itself becoming a bit overstuffed.”

Praise about Lighter Living

I received these kind notes in my email inbox recently:

“I just finished reading your “Lighter Living: Declutter, Organize, Simplify” book on Kindle Unlimited.  You asked us to contact you with feedback.  I’d just like to thank you for such a well-written, well-paced book.  It was just the shot in the arm that I was looking for.It was thorough and never once preachy.  You very lovingly laid out all the angles/areas involved for us to consider, and gave us gentle encouragement to follow our own path.  It was a perfect blend of advice/covering the topic & personal anecdotes.  Thank you for such an enjoyable read!”

“I bought Lighter Living for my sister, not me. I’m the organized one, the one who has Feng Shui books and could work at Container Store. I sold my house a year ago and downsized. What could I learn from another book about getting rid of stuff? A lot.
Lighter Living goes beyond decluttering. I first read it when I needed help in clearing out a storage unit that contained items I couldn’t emotionally deal with for over 12 years. The book gave me guidance and encouragement. The photos were simplified, Granny’s quilts went to family members who love them (I never did), and a large drum set was donated to a deserving high school musician. No more storage unit!
Lisa’s gentle, practical, and yes spiritual advice helps you see the many ways you can live lighter, the steps to achieve this, and the benefits to you and your loved ones. I will give my sister her copy of Lighter Living, and keep a copy for myself. There is a lot more for me to learn.”
