Discardia is a four times a year holiday that celebrates letting go, getting rid of, and removing unneeded things from your life. It's one of my favorite modern holidays, one of those repeated reminders that there are sometimes things that you have gathered into your life that need to be scattered around instead.
Priority one is a book purge; I'll be filling up a few bags with books to get out of the house.
Priority two is an internet purge, looking at the online services that absorb time (and money some times) and seeing which ones I can do without. This means that every single email that comes into the inbox for the next few days gets the query "how do I get rid of this".
Priority three is a kitchen purge, looking at the emergency cupboard for the food that will never be eaten by us and should be donated, and looking for spare utensils and containers that could go.
Properly done, this is a year round effort, the sort of effort that has a box in your house that is the designated spot to send things off to the Reuse Center or some other organized recycling process. With two kids around the house the natural tendency is towards unmitigated clutter, but there's some way to counteract that.
