Drop it. Do not even think about throwing away your things if you are just not finding the room. There is a better way! Choose to put your things away in self storage so you do not have to have an emotional parting with any more inanimate objects. There are great storage facilities that will welcome your belongings with open arms. This is a great option for those with a ton of stuff and an inadequate space. You can access your things when you need them and keep them out of the way in the mean time. No garbage can necessary.
As you de-clutter your space, think about self storage before you choose to throw anything away. Store seasonal decorations, memorabilia or even heavy equipment you just do not have the room for. Your stuff will not be gone just neatly out of the way.
