Is this item enhancing my life?
This question is better than “Do I love it?” (Because, of course, at one time, you did.) Instead, ask yourself if the item is actively important to you right now.

Is this something I’ll want my children to see one day?
A work of art you’re proud of completing? Sure. A moving box filled with decades-old Tupperware? Probably not.

When I wear this, do I feel good?
Make it goal to have a closet full of only confidence-boosting items that you truly love.

Would I move this to a new home?
If you wouldn’t take it with you, why give it permission to fill your space now?
