Keep or Give?

If  you can’t decide if you want to keep or donate an item, ask yourself “Would I replace this if it were lost or broken?”

Your answer to that simple question often causes the but I spent X amount of money on it, or I might need it, or I received it as a gift, argument to lose its validity.

Letting the item go  opens up space in your house and your life now and  puts it out into the world where someone else could use and value it.

IF someday you need that thing again: Trust that you could buy, borrow, rent, repurpose something you already have or find a suitable replacement.

“The joy of giving is indeed a pleasure, especially when you get rid of something you don’t want.”  Butler & Cavett
