Do you have parents or friends who have begun to lean on you more to help them with doctors/appointments or running errands? Do you feel like you live in your car, shuttling kids/parents from one activity to the next with little time to make dinner, much less organize anything? If these questions resonate with you, then you are in the Exist & Maintain stage of life. This stage may find you with acquiring less things and looking for places to put items on a more permanent basis.

This discussion looks at how to preserve your legacy, like organizing your photos, memorabilia, or children’s prized possessions that were left in attics, basements and bedrooms. Additionally, I also talk about tips for decluttering the main living areas to create spaces that are peaceful and serene.
