Downsizing the Family Home: What to Save and What to Let Go
March 24th,  8-9 pm EST
CareerEncores Series

Imagine having to move out of a home you've lived in for 20, 30, or 40 years.   You will have undoubtably accumulated a huge amount of "stuff".  Books, CD's records, photographs, nick nacks, junk in the basement, attic, and garage.  It's bound to be a LOT of stuff.  

Marni provides a humorous look at how you can approach this point in your life and offers suggestions that you start cutting into this collection immediately.  Your goal should be to begin to thin down your "stuff" at least 3-5 years before you retire so you are not burdened with the emotional and physical responsibilities as you age.
