Read in January, 2009

This book puts my simplifying efforts to shame. It really delves into WHY you're holding onto all that stuff, and how to let go. Even though it's aimed at an older crowd, I was truly inspired to get rid of a lot more stuff. It's also rather thin - the authors pack the information in, without becoming too repetitive. The only parts that annoyed me were the ones on shopping and dumpsters. If you really are trying to scale down, the shopping has to be cut way back (the authors seemed a little soft on this one). I also don't appreciate the dumpster concept as much as they do because I think it encourages people to trash otherwise useful or recyclable or hazardous stuff. It may help you cut down on belongings very quickly, but the method can be problematic.
