Consider the practicality and sentimentality of each item. Ask yourself if it serves a purpose, brings you joy, or holds deep sentimental value. If not, let it go. But, be honest with yourself–do you have too many sentimental items? If so, this is a good time to scale back. Remember, if everything is special, nothing is special. Do you have friends or family who might appreciate a special gift from you? You can even document the stories behind items before you pass them on.
