book review – discardia: more life, less stuff

xdiscardiaDiscardia is a holiday that Dinah Sanders created to celebrate letting go of clutter. It appears a few times a year, allowing you to continue the celebration regularly.

Sanders offers three guiding principles to conquering your clutter: Decide and Do; Quality over Quantity; and Perpetual Upgrade.

While she is heavily ironic and very entertaining, there are some good ideas in the book.

Sanders also blogs at metagrrrl and this is one of my favorite quotes from a post of hers:

One of my Discardian goals is to have nothing which I have not consciously looked at in the past two years and said “Yes. I still want this.” Every possession’s “service contract” is up for renewal or I’m canceling it. – Dinah Sanders

Have you checked the “service contract” on all the stuff you’re keeping? Do you have some things that haven’t earned renewal?
