You have a Thing in your hand, or in your sights...
What now? How do you decide to toss or keep?
I've whipped up a Really Short Checklist (got to love checklists).
All questions apply to you AND all family members.
- Is it broken, chipped, stained, have a hole in it, is it worn out or just grotty?
- Is there something else that can do the same job?
- Would it cause a problem to get rid of this Thing?
- Have you used it in the last year?
- Do you absolutely LOVE it or really need it right now?
If there’s another one, or two or three just like it, you haven’t used it in a year and you don’t absolutely LOVE it, then it’s probably best sent to a new home.
If it’s still in good condition donate it.
Have fun decluttering!
