Also a good book to gift if you are wanted to induct someone into the process of clearing and decluttering their home.
After reading this, I discarded quite a lot of things - material, and non-material!
Feeling light and happy.
My standard advice - Read 3-Star reviews on Amazon.com - for a balanced perspective of how the book is.
a must for every individual. i am glad i found the recommendation from an acquaintance

I have now read five books about decluttering...all bought off Amazon, and the Jay book, the most expensive, does have some excellent ideas e.g. about keeping surfaces, including the floor, absolutely clear if you can... but imho, other good ones are:
For psychological detail about WHY people buy and accumulate goods they don't need, I recommend Dr. Marilyn Paul's book,"Why am I so disorganised?" which is an exhaustive exploration of the many reasons that may be applicable (though at times it does read like a series of notes of the various books she read when researching for her book.) [And it does have annoying 'quizzes' to fill in early on.. but don't let that put you off.]
And for a down-to-earth British approach covering bad habits, smaller spaces, home office issues and a description of Joan Bakewell's "Saying Good Night to My House" routine, I would recommend, Sheila Chandra, "Banish Clutter Forever: how the Toothbrush Principle will change your life forever". This helped us to dramatically change our bathroom, and to save a good deal of money too, as when we redecorated we found we had no need for any bathroom cabinet, or extra 'fripperies' - and it looks really simple and nice, and is much faster to clean. I found this the best value for money as regards effecting real change... tho' I am still working on our loft...
