Apply the 80/20 Rule to Clutter to Get Rid of Old Junk by Thorin Klosowski. Speaking with The Wall Street Journal, author Jennifer Baumgartner suggests you apply the 80/20 rule to your stuff to help you get rid of it. Using the example of clothing, Baumgartner breaks it down like so: Remember the 80/20 rule: Most people wear only 20% of their clothing 80% of time. Much of the rest reflects past sizes, past self-images or past life roles. Recognize them for what they are. "If you want to move forward, release the past, starting with your closet," writes Jennifer Baumgartner in her book You Are What You Wear: What Your Clothes Reveal About You.
