How often should one decide what items to keep, sell, donate or toss? For me, the editing process is ongoing and constantly evolving. Because I live in a small space, it's important for me to consider carefully what I choose to bring into my home. Many times, if something new comes in, something old must leave.
The beauty of small-space living is that it forces me to critically assess my belongings frequently. If I don't do so, the clutter quickly accumulates. If you tackle the editing process in five minute increments just once a week, you may even find it to be an enjoyable and cathartic experience. Just sayin'.
