Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider

"Simplicity isn't about what you give up.  It's about what you gain.  When you remove the things that don't matter to you, you are free to focus on only the things that are meaningful to you.  Imagine your home, your time, your finances, and your belongings all filling you with positive energy and helping you achieve your dreams.  It can happen, and Organized Simplicity can show you how.
Inside you'll find:
*A simple, ten-day plan that shows you step by step how to organize every room in your home
*Ideas for creating a family purpose statement to help you identify what to keep and what to remove from your life
*Templates for a home management notebook to help you effectively and efficiently take care of daily, weekly and monthly tasks
*Recipes for non-toxic household cleaners and natural toiletry items including toothpaste, deodorant and shampoo.
Start living a more organized, intentional life today."

This is one of the best books on organization I've read to date.
Not only is it filled with great ideas to start any decluttering project, it contains several worksheets that can help the reader manage budget, time, and inventory.   I really relate to the perspective the author takes on making room in your life for the good stuff by clearing out the stuff that's blocking you.  The compact size makes it easy to tote anywhere, for inspiration throughout the day.  If this book doesn't get you started on clearing out the clutter in your life, then you're just not serious about improving your life.  I look forward to reading this again and again.
