From the author of Gettin’ Old Ain’t for Wimps (and boy, can I relate!) comes one of the most practical books I’ve come across in years: The Upside of Downsizing.

My not-quite-five-foot-tall grandma used to say, “Good things come in small packages.” This book is the poster child for that statement! A small book that fits comfortably in a purse or briefcase, this pint-sized, power-packed tome can be read in sound bites at nearly any lull in your busy life–and especially if you’re at the age when your earthly journey is winding down and you’re getting ready to “graduate” to heaven.

If you’re ready to tackle the clutter and wondering what to do with all that extra space since the kids moved out, bestselling author Karen O’Connor has the advice and encouragement you need, all boiled down to simple, manageable suggestions to help you get the most out of the “golden years” of life. To order this book and/or find out more about Karen and her other books and speaking, go to And while you’re at it, get a copy for each of your friends or family members who might also be facing some of these inevitable decisions!

    With three kids still at home, I’m not quite there yet–but I’d buy it for the title alone. A similar phrase was on my short list of working titles for another project when I learned of Karen’s book. And as I read your review, I’m glad she used it first. It sounds like a wonderful idea that will fill a unique niche. Thanks, Kathi!
