I've been decluttering alot, & have come to realize at the end of the day, after you get rid of trash, & undesirables, & then move up to "good but I just don't have room for this", or I just don't like it as much as the others, or, it doesn't fit", what you are left with are things you love but YOU STILL HAVE TOO MUCH. I would not have been able to see this, much less agree with it in the beginning of the process; but basically I am paring down to keeping only the best of the VERY best. (cont'd)
Everyone's % will be diff, but for me with limited space I am only keeping ~10%. Only now do I see this at the end of the day; at the very end of the process. Oh, the hours of agony I could have saved myself, & precious time, if I had known from the beginning the goal was to keep the best 10%.
