Making a big move and need to start consolidating possessions to the essentials

I'm planning to move in a little over a year and will only bring what I can fit in my car. How do I start clear out most of my possessions?

In about a year and a half I'll be moving and I need to come up with a strategy to begin consolidating and reducing what I own. I want to do as much as possible in the months leading up to the move so I'm not stuck at the last minute trying to rid myself of possessions.
I'm only bringing with me what I can fit in my Dodge Neon. My mom is willing to let me bring a few boxes of personal items to her house.
I'm 25 and live in a 11' x 14' bedroom. My closet is overflowing and I also have some things stored in the garage. The first step I took was to take about half of my DVDs out of their cases and put them in a binder that can actually go with me in the car.
Any advice about where to start or how to go about reducing my possessions would be much appreciated. Any of your own experiences about making a similar move are also welcome!
