Disposing of Stuff

These are some of the questions I ask myself when I’m having a clear-out.

Things I Need to Keep

Some things just need to be put away, so I ask:

  • Where does it belong?


This is the stuff that nobody is ever likely to need. When disposing of rubbish I ask:

  • Can it be recycled?
  • Does it need to be taken to the tip?
  • Does it just go in the bin?

Everything Else

For everything else, I ask:
Can I sell it?

Can I give it away?

  • To friends?
  • To charity?
