The bestselling author, clutter expert, and host of Enough Already! with Peter Walsh offers a roadmap to creating a less-is-more life and how a life of less can actually be a life of great abundance.

It seems as though not a day goes by that we don’t think about money. We try to save more. We strive to use less credit. We worry about funding our retirement and our children’s education. Yet we continue to spend money on things that don’t matter. Peter Walsh knows that money and debt can overwhelm your life even faster than clutter, and he has a plan to help you deal with that emotional and financial chaos. Sometimes our problems are not really about the physical stuff but about the emotional fabric of our lives—from our relationships with money to our relationships with people and even how we define and find happiness.

In Lighten Up, Peter demonstrates that this reassessment of priorities is a great opportunity to examine our lives and circumstances and to make the changes necessary to focus on the things that really matter. Exploring the real source of happiness, Peter offers a clear strategy for finding the delicate balance between what we have, what we need, and what we want or feel entitled to. With three unique audits that cover every aspect of our well-being, he takes us step by step through sizing up not just our possessions and financial statements but also our thoughts, goals, use of time and energy, and even our innermost sources of tension. He then shows us how to embrace the changes we’ve experienced, set a new path for the future, and come to accept that living on less can feel—and be—so much richer. Peter’s plan will help you achieve a personal balance that brings you happiness and the courage to choose a richly rewarding life over the mindless pursuit of more stuff.

From Publishers Weekly

01 November 2010 – Organizational guru Walsh (Enough Already!) coaches readers in dealing with psychological clutter tied to money and finances so they can live thrifty lives that are also liberating, pleasurable, and rewarding. In a book brimming with case studies, pop quizzes, letters from Walsh's fans testifying to the joys of living with less, and exercises probing what readers want from their financial lives, careers, and relationships, Walsh says we must discern our wants from our needs so that the overpurchasing of goods and services doesn't just consume our energy and bank accounts but also our happiness and our chances of achieving peaceful lives At the crux of this book are three audits designed to instigate life changes: a financial audit combined with assessments of the physical junk filling our homes and the emotional junk causing tension in our lives. Throughout, Walsh challenges readers to face not just the physical clutter overwhelming their homes but also the psychological underpinnings to their habits and attitudes, to confront family members, and to establish tough boundaries within the limits of their family's means. Although the advice is familiar, motivated readers will find plenty of helpful tips to jump-start their self-transformations.
