Now that you have settled into retirement, have you decided to downsize? Or are you someone who needs a caregiver or companion in your home but due to clutter are unable to get someone to assist you? Are you just not sure what to do or where to start? Join me and my guest as we share techniques to help you and those you love declutter, downsize and get organized for this new phase of life.
Sometimes the answer isn’t more time or more space—it’s less stuff. But how do you begin to sort out everything that has accumulated over the years? And how do you keep from accumulating more?
Host Kathy Sipple speaks with Marianne Beal Peters, the author of "Declutter for Good: Share Your Stuff & Reclaim Your Life, a book that will inspire you to rid yourself of the possessions that are clogging up your plans, goals and dreams so you can pass them along to those who could use them.
The owner at Fresh Words, Marianne writes on a variety of topics and contributes to several publications, specializing in sustainability and gardening topics. Marianne lives with her husband and two teenage daughters in Plymouth, Indiana. They recently downsized, giving away three-quarters of their possessions to move into an 85-year-old house where she's trying to establish an organic urban garden without doing permanent damage to her body or mind. When she has a free moment, she likes to sneak outside and pull weeds.
When the time comes, and you are faced with downsizing. The right people can help make the transition as painless as possible.
One of the people that can help you along the path of downsizing is a compassionate real estate agent. Sandra Vipperman, of Napier Realtors ERA, is one of those special people who get what this is all about.. She will make sure that she finds the right house for the person that is downsizing. She matches up the person to the right home, and makes sure the place suits all the needs of the downsizer.

The show agenda was to cover retro from Elimira Stove Works. That show has been rescheduled. On the show tonight Linda shares tips, and previews her upcoming book on healthy downsizing.
Beyond the years of "stuff" jammed in the closets, families and loved ones take on the impact of downsizing design and going through the process. Even the word "downsizing" can impact negatively on the senior in the process of the mindset change needed to do this. Join us for this discussion of the nuts and bolts of making downsizing design easier for everyone in the family.
As a retiree, I'm always looking for ways to cut expenses without degrading my lifestyle. I illustrated this in my Retirement Spending Plan essay a while ago. It's a good plan, and it's working. But it wasn't feasible until two years ago, when Tricia and I downsized.A bigger house, of course, costs more money to buy. But that's just the beginning. You'll pay more in property tax. It also costs more to maintain, heat, cool, and furnish.Most of us develop some sort of an emotional attachment to our homes. For some, that attachment runs quite deep. I'm not particularly sentimental. So the emotional part of downsizing was not a big issue for me. But it was for Tricia. It took her several years after the children were gone to even entertain the notion of moving.Moving is a real pain in the butt. I'd forgotten because I hadn't moved in such a long time. And the last time I moved, I didn't have anything close to the stuff I have now. Look around your house. If you've been in it for any length of time, chances are you've accumulated enough possessions to make the prospect of moving more than a little daunting.People who should listen to this show are people living above their means or have older parents who can't take care of the home the live in
