Despite the fact that I’ve (mostly) decluttered my family’s living space, I still love to read books on decluttering. I have a passion for helping other’s declutter their homes. I also like to keep up on what experts have to say about reducing clutter. Because I have read almost every decluttering book ever published, you don’t have to! I have narrowed down my favorites to the following top 10 decluttering books.
I challenge you to read at least one of these top 10 decluttering books before you begin the decluttering process.
By doing so, you will arm yourself with an arsenal of decluttering tools which you will be able to refer to again and again as you begin your journey towards a clutter-free home.
Top 10 Books On Decluttering
While most of the following books are “how-to” books, some are “why-do” books. I believe when decluttering, you should focus on the how and the why. By doing this, we can hopefully stop the habits which got us into this mess, to begin with.
Without further ado, here’s my list of the best decluttering books:
1. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up-by Marie Kondo. I have recommended this book many times because it’s just that good. As a Christian, I’ve had to look past Ms. Kondo’s views on the ‘souls/feelings’ of objects, but overall, her message makes sense. Her approach is to hold each item and only keep it if it sparks joy for you. Marie focuses less on getting rid of everything and more on how stuff makes you feel. Thus, her book is a good starting point for anyone looking to reduce their belongings but are afraid to let go of too much too soon.
