Most people just plain have too much stuff. Do you really need 12 potholders and two potato peelers? What about the book you read once 8 years ago (there is always the library,) the old VHS tapes filling your bookshelves (there is always Netflix,) or the shoes that hurt your feet too much to wear – but darn it if you didn’t spend $80 on them and they are cute! Sound familiar? As you sort through a lifetime of accumulated possessions, ask yourself:
1. Do I really love it?
2. Do I use it regularly?
3. Do I have more than I need?
4. Can it be easily replaced?
5. What is the worst thing that could happen if I get rid of it?
Post it online, have someone pick it up off your doorstep, usually in the same day.
Another area most people could use to purge – the cleaning supplies cabinet! The average household has 20+ bottles of various cleaning concoctions, when really there are only four basic products needed to keep a house spic and span –
a good all-purpose
a scouring powder
a bottle of vinegar diluted with water.
