Quickie Tip!

Try to follow the one in, one out rule: Whenever you get a new item (sweater, book, set of sheets, whatever), donate/throw one of the same item.

Often times when we buy more, we're buying replacements but we never remove the one being replaced. Then things accumulate until we have more than we truly need, and more than needs being stored.

Or, in the case of books, collectibles, or kitchen doo-dads, we buy to get the next best thing or 'one more'. But to make room for that new one, something's gotta give -- donate/throw something else from that category.

Remember, just because you have them, doesn't mean you need them.
