Is your DVR filled with television shows you and your family have saved? You can decide to delete the shows (although check before you delete the shows someone else has saved) or watch them.
If you aren’t watching the shows, why? Do you really want to spend the time watching them? Are you waiting to watch them with a friend or family member? The only way they will get watched is if you plan the time. So, schedule some time for yourself or make a date with the other person who wants to see these saved shows.
If you can’t bring yourself to make the time to watch a show, consider that it really doesn’t interest you. Sure, it may be the show that everyone is talking about right now, but, will they be talking about it months from now when you finally get around to watching it?
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Give away a knickknack that you’ve been displaying for years even though you no longer like it or find any reason for keeping it.
