Moving is part torture and part excitement. I love and hate to move for many reasons. I love the process of going through everything I own and asking myself, do I really need this? Do I really use this? Do I really love this?
After 11 years in the same house, I have come to realize that designing loads of closets and storage into our house was not as good of an idea as it appeared to be.
So, as I go through every closet, every drawer and every box, here is my criteria for what stays and what goes.
Have I used it in six months?
Did it cost under $10?
Does it have sentimental value?
If the answer is no, then out it goes. - to charity, recycling or just plain trash.
If in doubt - throw it out!
