3. I only keep what I know I'm going to possibly be able to use in the near future or have a plan

to use long term and recycle and donate everything else I no longer need or want. I find when I keep all my treasures organized, neat and ready to get to I'm a better at reusing instead of storing and hoarding. I usually do a big clean sweep after the holidays because I've gotten so much of the stuff out to do crafts, etc and then have all the bags, boxes, ribbons from the holidays. If I find stuff I thought I'd redo, remake or use again that I haven't it's time to do something with it.

I also do the same thing about 3x a year with clothing(since my kids grow like weeds)...give it away, save for projects, etc.
