One thing is true for us all: life ends in death. We each must face the end of life with our own particular accumulated insights and skills. What To Do with Your Stuff by Lois G. Tager, M.Ed., CSA is a practical, indispensable guide for senior citizens and their families trying to negotiate the mine field of what to do with worldly possessions after the death of loved ones. In a world where the dispensation and inheritance of material possessions and objects with sentimental value can tear families apart, Lois Tager’s cogent and sensitive approach is a godsend. As a Certified Senior Advisor in partnership with a long-established and widely respected law firm, Tager is uniquely positioned to offer an informed and enlightened perspective, and has unquestionably written the right book at the right time. What To Do with Your Stuff is a vital resource with the potential to help an infinite number of people navigate a traditionally challenging stage of life with grace, dignity, and peace of mind.

What To Do with Your Stuff is organized into seven compassionately written, easy-to-read, common sense-infused chapters focused largely on the various aspects of decision making: how and why decisions must be made, avoiding pitfalls and conflict, making hard choices, important legal concerns (this chapter is guest-written by a prominent attorney), and the value of journaling and preserving personal stories. In addition, the book concludes with a ready-to-use “My Wishes, My Choice” journal to help readers organize their thoughts and wishes for family members, caregivers, and legal advisors.

What To Do with Your Stuff by Lois G. Tager, M.Ed., CSA is an invaluable tool for anyone wishing to ease the stress and worry of placing personal possessions in good hands for future generations and for families trying to understand the complexity and emotional/psychological burdens inherent in making such decisions.
