The $20/20 rule for getting rid of your stuff

When we moved into our house about 6 years ago, we re-finished the storage room and turned into a home office.

And so, well, let’s just say we don’t have very much space for storage. But that’s fine because it forces us to only keep the things we love and/or use regularly.

A guideline that I picked up a few years ago is the idea of this rule $20 and 20 minutes.

This is for those things own, and you’re holding on to “just in case” you might need it someday…

If you’re not sure if it’s something that you may need again one day, consider if it is something you could replace for less than $20 and in less than 20 minutes. If it’s easily replaced, just get rid of it now because for all you know, you will never need it again anyway.
