Since I have been decluttering, I want to go farther and simplify everything. What are some good books on simple living and simplifying?

I liked "A simple choice: A practical guide to saving your time, money and sanity" by Deborah Taylor-hough. But its the only one I've read on the subject, so.. ymmv<br><br>
It wasn't amazingly groundbreaking, but I enjoyed it.

My favorite is still Simplify Your Life: 100 Ways to Slow Down and Enjoy the Things That Really Matter by Elaine St. James.

Cool - thanks for sharing. I will add those to my library book list. I just picked this one up today: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FMaterial-World-Global-Family-Portrait%2Fdp%2F0871564300" target="_blank">Material World: A Global Family Portrait</a>. There was a thread about it a few days ago.

I cannot remember book titles, but there's an excellent long article in the December 2006 issue of Yoga Journal about simplifying that listed quite a few books. I would guess you could get the whole text of the article at their website, <a href="http://www.yogajournal.com" target="_blank">www.yogajournal.com</a><br><br>
Happy Reading!<br><br>

I like all of Elaine St. James' books: Simplify Your Life, Simplify Your Life With Kids, and I can't remember the other titles because I gave the book away (It was three titles in one) after I read it through two or three times. I know I can check them out at the library if I want to read them.<br><br>
Another one I really liked was Choosing Simplicity by Linda Breen Pierce. It is full of stories of people who have simplified their lives. I learn a lot from reading other people's stories.

This is a Feng Shui book, but I found it helpful for simplifying my surroundings, Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui by Karen Kingston. It gives practical suggestions for decluttering and simplifying.
