Downsizing and de-cluttering when you love 'stuff'!

When I look around my house I see a lot of 'things' that are beautiful or useful, but that I don't actually make use of. I feel a deep urge to purge, but also have that worry that sometime in the future I will miss these 'things.' Any advice on how to proceed? [more inside]

Tips for keeping a clean apartment

I'm a lazy slob, so I gradually fill my apartment with clutter, misplaced items, and occasionally a bit of trash. Now that I've finished my annual cleaning, I figure that the only way to keep my apartment neat and organized is to make keeping it clean about as easy as making it messy. Do people have any tips or useful items to help do that?
