Best Books on Decluttering & Minimalism

I have collected these titles for those of you interested in decluttering their homes (and lives). The list also includes books on minimalism in general. Which book works best for you, depends entirely on your personal situation and your goals.

It seems counterintuitive if I would advise minimalists and declutterers to buy new books. However, there are a few ways you can get around this:

  • Buy these books as an e-book, instead of hardcopy;
  • Go to your library and borrow them;
  • Find a second-hand copy online;
  • If you decide to buy a hardcopy, give the book to a friend or donate it after reading.
