I have recently downsized from a house that was far too large for my needs. My new apartment fits much better—but is just small enough to need some storage. As you can imagine, I've had a lot of decisions to make, and of course this isn't the first time I've had to make them.
I realized I was using the framework of evaluating items based on not only their tangible value, but their intangible value as well. I also realized that this was helping me go much more quickly.
This is a big job, that we all face at some point, whether we do this in our own home or after a family death, so I thought I'd share some insights.
