Döstädning – Swedish Death Cleaning

by | Inheritance

Sweden has had many great lifestyle idea’s, we all love Ikea.  But the latest lifestyle trend from the Swede’s is less macabre then it sound.  Döstädning is the Swedish concept of Death Cleaning.

Author and artist Margareta Magnusson has recently published a book on the subject.  Wills Worldwide always advocates the idea of preparation in regards to your will and estate.  Magnusson takes this advice further and has designed an approach for the over 50s to prepare their homes and belongings for the inevitable.  By purging the family home before they die, they make their passing easier on the next generation.

The author advises rather than clearing out all your mementos and personal items, you identify what makes you happy.  Thereby you free your family of clutter.  Not just for the over 50s, this is an ongoing process.  You should take your time, talk to your family, plan your legacy and treat it as a therapeutic process.  Revisit old memories, archive your treasures and share them with others.

For those of us living away from our home countries, this is even more pertinent advice.  You may have possessions in various places across the globe and beginning to Death Clean will allow you to organise how your treasures reach their intended beneficiaries.  It is time for all of us to embrace Döstädning…..

"It was a pleasure to work with Cindy and her team! Even though planning for one’s own death is a project we all can easily put off, it removed an area of stress in my life. I no longer had to wonder if certain people would be taken care of, or where my money would go. Cindy and I worked through the process and she asked a lot of thought provoking questions. The first draft helped me think a second layer down, and made the will more complete. We finalised with her lawyer, signed, witnessed and put away in a safe place, letting my executor know exactly where to find it. I do not hesitate to recommend Cindy’s services."

"Cindy made the process of making a Will painless and efficient which we really appreciated. She was sensitive to avoid putting pressure or hassle to complete the Will quickly which allowed us to consider everything in our own time. Best of all, Cindy's professional support and thorough and clear explanation of the laws pertaining to our situation were very helpful. We would look forward to working with Cindy again on documents personal to our family."
