One of the questions I ask people who are decluttering is “How many do you need?” Whether it’s coffee cups, T-shirts, pens, wine glasses or notepads, everyone has a different idea about what constitutes the right amount.

Determining what is just right for you may take some experimenting. If you are afraid to let go of things forever, try packing them in a box and putting a review date on your calendar. When you realize that you are comfortable with less, it’s easier to let go of the surplus.

He who knows that enough is enough will always have enough. – Lao Tzu

Here’s another post about “enough,” to give you more ideas.
