What are your favorite Simple Living and Decluttering books to read?  I am looking for new books on this topic because I find it fascinating.  I would love to have less things and spend less time taking care of stuff and more time with family.

Here is a list of the ones I can think of off-hand. I know there are several more I've read that were good.

Brooks Palmer's Clutter Busting -- just returned it to the library.  (Books are the next thing I have to purge.  So many books.)


I also liked Material World by Peter Menzel.
