Happiness and Order
As you think about what possessions to keep and which to give away or toss, consider:
- At this moment, do I know how to operate this thing?
- Am I keeping a gift out of sentiment or politeness, even though I don’t really like or need it?
- 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.
