From a post I found called 15 Great Decluttering Tips. Check out the rest, but this one tickled my fancy.
"The One-Year Box. Take all your items that you [are] unsure about getting rid of (e.g. “I might need this someday…”), put them in a box, seal it and date it for 1 year in the future. When the date comes, and you still didn’t need to open it to get anything, donate the box WITHOUT OPENING IT. You probably won’t even remember what there was in the box."
I have a better idea. Take all your items you are unsure about getting rid of. Put them in a box, seal it, date it for 1 year in the future, then immediately take it to Goodwill and get rid of it. If you're putting it in a box and sealing it, trust me--you won't remember what's in it and you won't need it. Ha!
