Happiness and Order 

As you think about what possessions to keep and which to give away or toss, consider: 

  1. At this moment, do I know how to operate this thing? 
  2. Am I keeping a gift out of sentiment or politeness, even though I don’t really like or need it? 
  3. Am I keeping something as a memento? Pick mementos wisely. Try to choose things that don’t take up too much room. To hold on to the memory of something large — say, your father’s desk — take a photo.
