Let It Go, Let It Go

If you’ve have been keeping stuff in storage “just in case you need it” it’s time to face facts: You probably don’t

Tax Returns: The statute of limitations for how long Uncle Sam can audit you is 3 years. Keeping tax returns any longer just means more paper cuts

 

Cooking Spices: Herbs and spices also last a max of three years, assuming you keep them in a cool, dark place. If they don’t smell aromatic or taste good, toss it.

 

Box o’ Memories: According to the Journal of Positive Psychology, it takes 11 weeks to get over someone. So burn all of those love notes and mix tapes and get back out there.

 

Old Clothes: It might be time to take that vintage leisure suit with the 28-inch waist to Goodwill. Only 1 in 20 people can both lose-and keep off-their love handles for longer than three years.

 

Computers: Moore’s Law states that computing power doubles every 18 months. Trading up might be expensive, but when it comes to tech, you can’t afford not to be cutting edge.
