One -ten rule...What is that? My "formative years" in the Army, taught me how to live with less. It worked so good that I carried it over into 
"civilian" life. Until the last ten years or so. Here's how it works.....If you don't use a general purpose item at least once in a year, you get rid of it !
Clothing, 10 days wearing, adjusted for seasons. Example: max. of ten pairs of pants, ten shirts, ten pairs of socks, underwear. A quick look in my 
closet gave 41 hanging shirts, 23 pants. there's more, two suit cases packed plus all kinds of T-shirts and knit wear in drawers, many Items I know I
haven't worn in 5 years. I gotta go back to the 1-10 rule. Here's something that might be useful to many of you. "Crap Boxes" and the "Crap Book".
Boxes marked as seen in the picture below.....

Then cross-referenced in the book...…..

Alphabetically and by content page...……

The book also lists dresser and cabinet drawers. It really does save time in hunting.
This MAY seem Weird to some(it may be) but it might help some of you.
I gotta load up a lot of stuff for GOODWILL......Going back to 1-10 rule... Winky

I like the idea.  I told my wife that what we need after 30 years of not throwing anything away, is a good house fire.  I have a 3 bedroom home and you can only sleep in one of them.  And the basement, forget it.

Besides food and a bed all you really need is enough clothing for two weeks, basic toiletries, a smartly curated toolbox and a guitar or two.

You could have ten guitars I guess, if you use them within the one year..... Rolleyes

Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing. Smile

I used the Konmari method on my closet & shoes a couple of years ago - haven’t missed a thing. I actually enjoy paring down and removing clutter... it’s very therapeutic.
