Get It Together is a compassionate guide to end-of-life planning.Melanie Cullen’s Get It Together is a detailed guide to getting your end-of-life ducks in a row.No one wants to think about their own death or what happens once they’re gone; the same goes for thinking about the death of a loved one. But without proper planning, this grief-filled inevitability can be fraught with frustration, added pain, and legal issues for those left behind. Aside from the emotional weight, thinking through every element of a death and getting everything organized can be overwhelming. Cullen’s clear-eyed guide will help to make the process as smooth as possible.The book’s main focus is on organizing the information and documentation that a loved one would need to honor the wishes and commitments of a departed person. There’s space in the second half of the book to fill in answers; information and documentation can be also organized in a binder, available separately. All the mentioned forms can be downloaded and tailored to an individual’s needs.Covered topics include healthcare, finances, dependent care, and funeral planning. From practical considerations, like coordinating care for children, pets, and other dependents, to the nostalgic ones, like a writing a last letter to loved ones, it is easy to understand why this would be regarded as a trusted guide. This edition builds on the seven previous ones, considering every possibility and infusing every recommendation with empathy and wisdom.Helpful examples arise throughout the book’s explanations and are designed to jump start the planning process. There are tips for putting together the recommended binder, lists of additional resources, and advice about when to get professional help, such as for setting up trusts. Practical information, like estimates for burial costs, is also included.Beyond the book’s wealth of wisdom, its most helpful feature is its compassion. Each tip and element of the book’s layout reflects care and concern for those completing their binders and their loved ones. It becomes evident that, no matter a person’s personal situation, looking ahead and preparing for death is an important and empowering task. By revealing all of the choices that can be made and by making communication regarding death easier, the book imparts a sense of control over what cannot be controlled.” Reviewed by Melissa Wuske, Foreword Clarion Reviews”Provides a guide to collecting and organizing important records, and how to store and protect them, for readers and their family members.” Reference & Research Book News“Offers a detailed, step-by-step process for gathering records and key documents and organizing them for future use.” Sacramento BeeFrom the Author: When my mother was sick, she and I discussed a few important items: her final arrangements; her insurance agent, attorney, and financial advisor; the location of her safe deposit box. Although sparse, these bits of information were precious to me when the time came. Soon after she passed, I created a personal planner with my own important information and records—the basis for Get It Together. Get It Together is a guide and resource to help you create your own personal planner—an organizer for you and an eventual road map for your loved ones. It covers 28 topics, including you, your family, your work endeavors; your assets and liabilities; your estate planning and final wishes. It provides a framework for newlyweds and parents, for those planning travel or deployment, for seniors—really, for all mortals.

  • BUY THIS BOOK! The workbook it includes (with complimentary download) are awesome. I took a weekend putting it together and making a list of records to order for it. This book will be invaluable to my family if myself or my husband were to suddenly pass away. Plus we can just keep updating things as the years go by. Best $20 I have spent in a long time.
  • A very easy to follow way to manage your affairs when you need to be hospitalized, nursing home, death bed, buried. It helps you organize your wishes, desires, all of your papers, loans, incomes, where your keys are, etc. So your loved ones or whomever is in charge when you are incapacitated or dead can find exactly where things are and what you wanted done with them. There are forms included and websites and all sorts of helps. It’s not a thing to wait to do, getting a will and health care decisions made. Do it. Like someone said, ” Surely you love someone more than the government.” And that’s who’ll get it all unless your take steps now. Do it for fido and pussy cat, do it for kids and grandkids, a spouse, you are in charge now and after you’re gone with this book
  • I just received the book so this is my first immediate impression. First of all, it is a book. I was expecting more of a group of forms and a couple of pages of instructions. It’s so much more that that. Just skimming through the book I saw prompts for my employment dates and instructions about my pets (like care and feeding), not just who they go to. And many other things. Things I didn’t think about. Having gone through stuff when my mom died I know how hard it was for me to think. I was too sad to go through her stuff, it was too overwhelming. Thank goodness for my wife and some dear friends. Otherwise, I would have just taken her pictures and some personal items like her coat she always wore so I could remember her. I would have sold the rest as one purchase so I didn’t have to deal with anything other than my grief. Having her have all her info and wishes like this in one place would have so helpful. I’m glad to know once I get this completed, my family will have this. I’m not the most organized person in the world and a little paranoid about some one breaking in and having my info. Knowing I can store my info digitally is great for me. I’ll encypt all this info and tell my wife and sons where it’s at and the password to access. Then I know it’s safe and will help them when I go. I think this may have been one of my best purchases ever.
  • Good book and well organized, well worth the $20. I used to rtf files to make my own sections. I am proficient at using a computer, WORD documents and tables. I found it a bit cumbersome at times so if you re not good at computer work, you my find it easier to print up forms and hand write in info. I wanted to adapt mine more and eliminate unneeded space.A word about the available binder and tabbed indexes. I did not purchase these because of comments about the indexes not being wide enough to stick out past sheet protectors ( if used). That drives me crazy. That said another commenter felt the price was too high but I guarantee you if you purchase your own high quality 3 inch D ring binders and good tabbed indexes ( I bought extra wide of indexes and binder) you will spend more money. The other issue I found with going for extra wide binders is that the typical home safe is one inch less deep than needed for extra wide binders IF you want to put them in so the binder is put in like a book shelf. So even though I did not purchase, I would recommend the binder and tab set if you are not as fussy as I am and it will save you money in the long run.
  • I ordered this thinking it would be great to have all my info in one book. This manual is over 1 inch thick and is much too cumbersome and difficult for an old person like me to figure out. All kinds of info to save to PDF, or print with references to other sections of the manual. I tried to return it but there is a $19 shipping charge, not free. So I am probably going to trash is and look for a much more simpler book.
  • I am in the midst of preparing a notebook for my only child to use when the time comes that I am incapacitated and death occurs. I don’t want her to go through what I have had to do with my relatives. There are forms in the book and you can also go on line for the forms as well and even “fill them out” on line. The author prepares you for every eventuality; some you will use and some you won’t. It is a lot better than another book I purchased. This one is worth the money.
  • I bought “Get it Together” with the binder and tabs. The book is easy and interesting to read. It’s surprising how many important documents and information I had not thought about keeping in one safe, organized place.
  • I just love this book and am working my way through all the sections. I hope when I die to leave a well documented and organized plan for my son to follow to finalize my life – from funeral plans to accounts to close out to where to find all my important documents, etc. Great book.
