How to clear the clutter

For each object you pick up ask yourself the following questions:
  • “Do I need this?”
  • “Have I used in in the past 6 months?” (12 months for seasonal clothes or sporting equipment)
  • “Would it help someone else more than me?”
  • “Can I easily get it again if I dispose of it?”
These questions should help you make a decision. If you end up with a box of things that you can’t decide what to do with or you are not ready to dispose of, keep them in this box in storage. After six months, go back to the box — and if you haven’t used anything from the box in that time you can pass them on to someone who may be able to use them.
