Summed up, it goes like this: you go through every possession you own, hold it in your hands, and keep it only if it evokes some kind of “joy”.
The theory is that any possession that gives you bad or mixed feelings is too costly to have in your life, if it’s possible to get rid of it.
So it makes sense to carefully consider what we keep in our homes.
Most of us own lots of things that make us feel bad (unused gifts, clothes we don't like or that don't fit, books we’ll never read, etc). And if it’s normal to have hundreds or thousands of possessions, then we are each, at all times, bearing the weight of hundreds or thousands of these relationships.
