This weekend I started the overwhelming process of packing, and in the process I took the opportunity to re-evaluate every item I was packing up. After the closet debacle, I had already mostly sorted through some of my stuff. So far I have started a pile for donation and given away a few items to my roommates.
While you are packing consider:
1. When was the last time I used or wore this? If it's more than six months or a year, it's time for it to move on to someone else.
2. Do I really need this?
3. Does this item take up space or truly add function to my life?
4. If I didn't have this item, would I miss it two months later?
