5. If the item is not climate compatible then it is set aside, unless you think an ice age may reach your tropical abode.

6. Holiday items are only kept if they were used in the last few years.

7. Remember the reasons that the artifacts have not been used in years. They either do not work or they are outdated.

8. To de-clutter get rid of old cutting boards, chipped enamel items and any aluminum cook wear. These have been deemed to be health hazards.
