It seems as though not a day goes by that we don’t think about money. We cut back on spending, we chase a bargain, we try to save more, we strive to use less credit, and 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. Peter’s previous bestselling books inspired us to successfully evict the clutter in our homes, on our bodies, and in six key areas of our lives. But for many people, clearing the clutter suddenly exposes deeper issues—financial, physical, and emotional. 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.

In Lighten Up you will learn how to

  • change the way you and your family measure happiness,
  • face your financial situation and set realistic priorities,
  • create space for what really matters,
  • plan realistically for financial and emotional security, and
  • be happier with less.

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.

    " I listened to the audiobook thanks to my local library. It was very up to date and addressed issues facing today's families. I especially enjoyed Peter's discussion of advertising--good material to retain and review. "

    " Goes beyond physical "stuff" to examine what mental and emotional baggage we are hoarding.... "

    " I'd give this book 2.5 stars. I found the suggestions here to be too similar to Walsh's It's All Too Much. Good suggestions for "lightening up" to help find happiness and make life more manageable for those who haven't read or heard Walsh. "

    " This is a lot about the recession, so if you're looking to lightne up that way. It's great. "
