I thought I’d put together a list of my favorite books on minimalism and decluttering. This is named “part one” as I’m always picking up new books, so I’m sure I’ll do a “part two” in the future.
- The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up – Does it even need to be said? The granddaddy of tidying books that helped start the minimalism trend. KonMari’s method is an excellent one and her gentle, encouraging voice really comes through, even in the translation.
- Goodbye, Things – Fumio Sasaki’s book is part memoir of his own journey to minimalism and the happiness it brought, part list of tips and tricks on decluttering. The bonus photo section is a joy to look at.
- Everything That Remains – Another minimalism classic. The Minimalists are the fathers of American minimalism and this is my favorite book of theirs (Although the other two are also good.) They call this their “Why to” book.
- The Life-Changing Magic of not Giving a F*ck – If it’s your calendar you need to minimize/declutter and you like a generous serving of cursing with some excellent advice, Sarah Knight’s book is for you.
- The Joy of Less – If KonMari isn’t for you, you might enjoy Francine Jay’s STREAMLINE method.
Hope you enjoy this list! Get to reading! (And remember – if possible, get these books from your local library rather than purchasing – that’s why I didn’t include Amazon links.)
