The Everything Feng Shui DeCluttering Book
Is the Book Worth the Read? -- Yes! A Feng Shui Library Essential
The Everything Feng Shui Decluttering Book: Simply Your Environment and Your Life by Katina Z. Jones
This is a GREAT book for learning the basics of feng shui which starts at decluttering! Jones first explains basic feng shui principles such as prosperity and abundance and how your environment plays a roll--and not always positively, as clutter can stifle you and your life potential.
She goes on to teach how to read the bagua and use it to enhance your home and intentionally reflect your ideal life in your home environment. It includes all the basics used by the Black Hat Sect (though she also touches on the other feng shui schools of thought), is organized into intuitive chapters for easy referencing, and includes a nice glossary of feng shui terms.
It's an easy, extremely informative, relatively short read in a small size that easily fits in a handbag or briefcase.

Katina Jones says
Create an intention and keep it in mind. Keep it positive every step of the way.
Don't keep broken things you may fix "someday." If you don't see yourself fixing it in the next few days, get rid of it.
Don't keep useless things. Ask yourself, "When was the last time I used this?" If it was more than a year ago, you probably don't need it.
If you haven't touched files in a year, archive them--or shred and recycle them.
Old newspaper articles are just junk sitting in a random box. Decide to organize and display them, perhaps in a photo album, or get rid of them.
Regularly clear our cup holders and other crevices in your car.
Once a year, have a "feng shui clearing" garage sale.get rid of everything you no longer use and donate the rest.
Dust surfaces, including light bulbs and fixtures, once a week. Dust is clutter, too.
Air our your home as often as possible.

Get the Book
The book I always go back to, thanks to its explanations of feng shui basics, room-by-room remedies, and--most importantly to me--its great help getting my house organized and clutter-free!
Author's Best Line:
Keeping things that are broken, useless, or obsolete is not practicing good feng shui. In good feng shui, everything you own should be of service to you--otherwise you will become a slave to it.

This book initially caught my eye because it has a picture of my hometown on the cover (Go Cards!), but I quickly noticed its 5-star review on Amazon. This book focuses more on feng shui history and flying star feng shui than room remedies.
This solution-oriented book is organized by problem. For example, if you have trouble sleeping or want to have a baby, just look up that problem and find some feng shui remedies!
I liked this book just because it addresses each room of the house including the home office. How can I make my office more conducive to creativity? How can I make my bedroom more restful? Suggestions abound here.
