Do you keep the printed invitations from weddings, showers, bar mitzvahs, and other special events that you are invited to? Was the event significant to you? Would you forget about the event if you didn’t have the invitation to look at? If you know why it is something that you want to hold onto, then you’ve decided this item is special. However, sometimes, we just end up holding onto something without giving any thought as to why.
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Remove a knickknack that you don’t (or no longer) cherish.
