In Enough Already: Clearing the Mental Clutter to Become the Best You, the process was taken a step further, exploring the impact that clutter has in our emotional and spiritual lives. The big question is: Now what? You've decluttered your home but what are you left with? For many people, it's some of the same feelings of wanting more and feeling deprived that you can't have everything you wish
for. Many of us have never, in our entire lives, had to make the tough decisions about how to buy less, consume less, live with less, and embrace the entire concept of "less is more." Today, with the changes in the economy affecting our very homes and livelihoods, less is no longer a choice but a necessity.Lighten Up offers a roadmap for all those struggling with the lingering desire for too much stuff, on the one hand, and too little resources on the other which leads to a life that is essentially a financial and emotional lie. This is a book for each of us now called, by choice or force of circumstances, to make significant
changes in our long-term habits of over-consumption and mindless acquisition of 'the more.'
Peter Walsh starts the process by explaining that in order to know what you need, you have to know what you have. He asks readers to take 3 audits: a life audit (your overall goals and how close you are to them), a home audit (what do you own and what is it costing you), and a financial audit (how honest are you about what you make, what you own, and what you owe). These audits and Peter's step by step direction help readers to clearly see how to clear up their financial clutter (and any emotional baggage that goes with it) so
they can reframe how they view what they own, what they can afford and how to prioritize what matters most for them and their families.
Peter Walsh is a clutter expert and organizational consultant who characterizes himself as part-contractor and part-therapist. He can be heard weekly on The Peter Walsh Show on the Oprah and Friends XM radio network, was a regular guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and was also the host of the hit TLC show Clean Sweep. Peter holds a master's degree with a specialty in educational psychology. He divides his time between Los Angeles and Melbourne, Australia.
