In fact, it inspired me to go on a bit of a cleaning binge. On one August day, I loaded up my little white Kia Sportage and tried to purge a few unnecessary items.
1) Separating the emotion from the possession. Craig occasionally accuses me of being a hoarder. For several years, I held onto a pink flamingo dip bowl that my sister gave me. When I called her and asked her if she would feel bad if I donated it, she just giggled. I took that as a "no."
2) Never label anything miscellaneous.
