It's All Too Much by Peter Walsh
If you are overwhelmed by clutter, or even just wanting to simplify - I definitely recommend It's All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff by Peter Walsh!! It's full of no-nonsense, practical ways to clear things out and create a more harmonious living space.
One of my favorite parts is the way he talks about those things we keep for "sentimental" purposes. If it's so special, he says, then treat it that way - not keeping it in a box in the attic or pushed to the back of a closet. Otherwise, pass it on to someone who will cherish it, or be able to use it! This inspired me to finally face the fact that it just might be OK to let my great-aunt's armoire find a new home :)
