Before you move into a new apartment, leave for a vacation, or start your freshman year of college, lay out everything you’re bringing on your bed. A bed is small enough so if it’s overflowing, you know you’ve packed too much. Examine what you have, cut out half of it. “But what if I” No. You won’t need it. Think of how many times you’ve used said item in the past 3 months. Barely any. Throw it out. You don’t need so many things. They won’t make you happy. They’ll make you feel good for a moment and then leave you empty again. Throw them out. Throw it all out.
