Decide which stuff is still important to you. Donate the rest or sell on craigslist. It’s amazing how much stuff we can accumulate.

If you haven’t used it in a year, donate or throw out.

Keep a handful of items that have a lot of sentimental value, sell/donate the rest of the *stuff*.  Surely you dont need those books, games, decor, dvd, etc.  If you are really attached to your DVD collection, rip them and watch them from a computer.  Stuff animals?  Time for them all to just go.  

I had it easy when I moved out of my house, I just left almost everything there because I thought it was sentimental.   It was 25 years of my stuff that I’d collected growing  up.  But after a while, I realize I dont miss any of it.  Anything that I really wanted and meant anythign to me, I took with me.  After a year, I went back and pretty much and tossed everything and it felt great!  Even now in my new house, every few months I go through and declutter and toss stuff.  It may be hard now, but I’m positive, you won’t miss any of the items you end up  parting with.

I actually just got done getting rid of a bunch of stuff today. I ask myself, “Would I miss this if it were gone?” If no, it gets donated. If yes, then I ask myself, “C’mon, let’s get real. Would you even NOTICE if it were gone?”
