After you've done a thing the same way for two years, look it over carefully. After five years, look at it with suspicion. And after ten years, throw it away and start all over.

February 15th - what to keep and what to throw away
throw away: to get rid of as worthless or unnecessary
Trying to decide what to keep and what to give away can be an overwhelming task for many people, including me.
Here are a couple of tips I found to help in the decision making process
If you love it and use it, KEEP IT.
If you don’t love it and don’t use it, TRASH IT.
Use and love of an object makes it easy to decide to keep it. Not liking it and not using it also make it easy to get rid of the item.
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.
Most of what I’m getting rid of is the unnecessary things here at my house. Too much of anything takes up a lot of space and only the necessary things are allowed to go. I’m going to be living in a much smaller place. I may have loved some of the things I’ve given away, but they were not necessary.
It's humbling to start fresh. It takes a lot of courage.... You just have to put your ego on a shelf and tell it to be quiet.
