Of course we know this isn't true for most of us. We have plenty. We just get tired of what we have. Yet ironically, we keep it, and a plethora of other items, and then complain that we have no where to put it.
The first rule of storage is to reduce the amount of items to be stored. Sounds easy enough, but in order to optimize the purging process, you have to be in the right state of mind. Your intellectual mind has to be more powerful that your emotions. Even when you think you are really ready to purge without emotion, it rarely ever happens that way.
One way to put the emotional side at ease is to think of someone who would really appreciate it. Think of the good energy that it brought to you and pass that energy along to someone else. And even if it has bad energy for you it might bring good energy to someone who wants exactly what you had just lying around the house.
