  • Wednesday, March 22, 2023

Decluttering expert Matt Paxton says you can let go of things that no longer serve you while keeping what's truly important for the next chapter in your life. In his new book “Keep the Memories, Lose the Stuff”, Mr. Paxton takes a humorous look at the stuff we hold onto and how it holds us back from living. He shares client success stories and tips to get started on a journey to downsizing and moving forward.  

The public is invited to meet decluttering and downsizing expert Mr. Paxton from 4-5:30 p.m. Thursday at Goodwill Greater Chattanooga’s Store on East Brainerd Road. People can get his new book for free when they bring a donation and while supplies last.  For downsizing and relocation professionals, there will be a presentation from 6-7 p.m. at the Goodwill Job Connection Center next to the store. Seating is limited, email to secure a spot for his talk.

Mr. Paxton is one of the top downsizing and decluttering experts in the country. He is the host of the 2-time Emmy nominated series LegacyList with Matt Paxton on PBS and was a featured cleaner on the hit television show Hoarders for 15 seasons. Mr. Paxton is also the author of the best-selling book, Keep the Memories, Lose the Stuff. Mr. Paxton started cleaning out houses after his father, stepfather and both grandfathers died in the same year and is the reason he has been working with families struggling with hoarding and downsizing for 20 years. Mr. Paxton appears regularly as a public speaker, television guest, and radio personality helping families and companies find the upside of downsizing. He lives in Atlanta with his wife and seven kids.
