Someone recently recommended this book to me: Simpler Living: A Back to Basics Guide to Cleaning, Furnishing, Storing, Decluttering, Streamlining, Organizing, and More, by Jeff Davidson and Mark Victor Hansen . Actually, I saw it displayed on their bookcase and that led to a long and interesting discussion. So based on their experience, and my limited viewing of the book, I'm comfortable noting it here. I just ordered a copy for myself - a used copy, of course, in keeping with my continuing goals of limiting my spending - and I eagerly await its arrival. It just seems to be well thought out, discussing the complexities of life, and actually includes warnings of getting too crazy in simplifying ones life.
