Do you plan to live forever — Do you ever plan to move — Depending on where you are going, you can not take it with you. In KICKING THE BUCKET LIST, death educator Gail Rubin brings a light touch to cleaning out those dark recesses of your home and organizing for end-of-life issues. In these pages, you will learn how to: tackle downsizing without being overwhelmed by the job; evaluate what to keep, toss, donate and recycle; creatively remove excess goods from your home; manage your finances for today and tomorrow; organize your funeral and create your legacy.

If you need guidance to downsize and organize, this book is for you. Baby Boomers facing their parents estates and their own downsizing will especially appreciate the information in KICKING THE BUCKET LIST.

The 128-page book, to be available in paperback and eBook formats, is a quick, easy read, with colorful photographs and bonus online information. Each of the 100 Bucket List items include links to helpful internet articles that expand on each point. The book, the eighth title in the Bucket List series, supports the work of the nonprofit National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the National Hospice Foundation.
