"Kicking the Bucket List: Downsizing and Organizing Things to Do Before You Die"

Do you plan to live forever? Do you ever plan to move? Depending on where you’re going, you can’t take it with you. This talk focuses on practical ways to downsize excess goods without being overwhelmed by the job, what you need to know to organize your information for your executor, and how to plan for end-of-life issues.

Talking about sex won’t make you pregnant, talking about funerals and end-of-life issues won’t make you dead."

Gail Rubin, CT, is a pioneering death educator who uses humor and funny films to teach about end-of-life topics.  She’s also an informed advocate for planning ahead, a Certified Funeral Celebrant, and the coordinator of the ‘Before I Die New Mexico Festival’ in late October, 2018.  As an award-winning speaker, she "knocked 'em dead" at TEDxABQ in 2015 and the author of three books on end-of-life issues:

  • A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don't Plan to Die
  • Hail and Farewell: Cremation Ceremonies, Templates and Tips
  • KICKING THE BUCKET LIST: 100 Downsizing and Organizing Things to Do Before You Die
