One of my close friends recently sent this book to me in the mail: “Advice From My Eighty-Year-Old Self.” I love it. It’s sentimental, funny, and full of life truths. It features bold, colorful layouts. The author asked a range of people ages 7 to 88 what they think their 80 year old self would say to their younger self like, “Life will be better than you imagined” and “Travel before your knees give out.” Makes you think: what would your 80 year old self say? Hmm, I think mine would say, “A little clutter won’t kill you.”
