Step 2

Move through your living areas and collect things to put into your bag that are:

  • Broken
  • Ugly
  • Tatty
  • Gross
  • Ancient
  • No longer your taste or style
  • Doubles of things you already have
  • Not used in the past year
  • Associated with bad memories
  • Covered in dust
  • Unloved
  • Associated with abandoned projects or hobbies.

Look out for:

  • Magazines older than last month
  • Newspapers older than today
  • Deceased plants
  • Knickknacks
  • Unloved gifts
  • Outgrown toys, DVDs, books, and games
  • Abandoned sports or exercise equipment
  • Stuff that’s left in the living area because no one really cares about it
  • Displayed photos or other items that hold no meaning for you
  • Decrepit cushions, rugs, throws
  • Old games consoles, media players, entertainment devices
  • Videos, cassettes, computer floppies, camera film – any storage device for which you no longer have hardware.
