Tracy McCubbin: Living clutter-free for happier, healthier aging


Episode 70: Live Long and Master Aging

Tracy McCubbin helps others declutter for a living. As we get older, many people find it hard to let go of stuff they've accumulated over the decades. But letting go is often a transformational experience. 

Tracy, through her Los Angeles-based company, dClutterfly, helps retirees prioritize essential items for the next phase in their lives, and advises the elderly on parting ways with items that simply no longer add value to their days. 

In her upcoming book, The Clutter Code, Tracy describes the emotional blocks that prevent people from decluttering their lives, and how to overcome these obstacles. She also discusses the practicalities of clearing our homes of mementoes, furniture, bric-a-brac, books and photos. 

In this LLAMA podcast interview with Peter Bowes, Tracy explains the importance of simplifying our lives and why there is a correlation between healthy aging and living in a clutter-free world.
