Perfectly Practical #62 - How to Purge

You have already heard about my whole anti-anti-clutter rant, so no need to rehash BUT within all of my chaos, there is order.  Sometimes...or at least everything has a place as long as it's rightful owner puts it back where it belongs...I digress...grrrrrr.....

One way that I purge, and I do purge far more regularly than one might think, is I ask myself a few questions:

1.  Is it beautiful? 
Does it make my life more beautiful because that item is in it (like hats)?  ;)

2.  Does it have a story?
Does it remind me of a special time, place, or person?

3.  Is it useful?
Will I actually use it?

I prefer to be able to answer affirmatively to at least two of the questions for each item in order to keep it but sometimes it's just 'cuz so one category will suffice.

I know there are lots of ways to go about purging your house but I find that a simple 3 question run down manages to get the job done.
