    Sometimes the answer isn’t more time or more space—it’s less stuff. But how do you begin to sort out everything that has accumulated over the years? And how do you keep from accumulating more?Host Kathy Sipple speaks with Marianne Beal Peters, the author of "Declutter for Good: Share Your Stuff & Reclaim Your Life, a book that will inspire you to rid yourself of the possessions that are clogging up your plans, goals and dreams so you can pass them along to those who could use them. The owner at Fresh Words, Marianne writes on a variety of topics and contributes to several publications, specializing in sustainability and gardening topics. Marianne lives with her husband and two teenage daughters in Plymouth, Indiana. They recently downsized, giving away three-quarters of their possessions to move into an 85-year-old house where she's trying to establish an organic urban garden without doing permanent damage to her body or mind. When she has a free moment, she likes to sneak outside and pull weeds.
