I’m Dead, Now What?

After I wrote about the notebook in which I am writing my last wishes, one of my regular blog readers, LaDonna, pointed me in the direction of Peter Pauper Press’s wonderful I”m Dead, Now What?’ planner. I love it! Find it here

I really like Peter Pauper Press notebooks, and this one is no exception. It is much more structured and planned than my simple notebook, which I think is great because it includes important things that may be left out otherwise. I had not even thought about some of the information in this book. There is another more delicately-named planner with the same contents, called ‘The Peace of Mind Planner’

In Sweden there is an electronic ‘ last wishes’ archive called The White Archive, where you can record your last wishes, funeral arrangements, and whereabouts of all your papers. You can have it in paper format as well, but for me it is very emotionless. I would like my last wishes to be in my own handwriting, with sentiment in them. I treasure my mother’s handwriting in her recipe books.

Thank you LaDonna!

  1. My beloved & quirky sister-in-law bought this planner (I’m Dead, Now What?) when it became clear to her that she would not survive ovarian cancer. I’m a professional organizer and her estate executor, so it was really a gift for me. When making the endless calls that come with the end of someone’s life, it made me smile or laugh each time I opened it to consult for the next step. I miss her desperately, and seeing your post brought another smile. (Hobonichi fan)

  2. I just saw this in a bookstore a couple of weeks ago! It’s such a wonderful idea and would make things so much easier for family! When I told my husband about it, he was skeptical because he said he wouldn’t like the idea of all of our personal information being in one place. (He’s always very cautious.) I personally don’t think that’s a problem, though. I love the name of it, too.
