I'm in! My strategies:
  • Evaluate every purchase - HOW will I use this? WHEN will I use this? Will I REALLY use this?
  • Review my current stamp/paper/tool collections to evaluate where there are "holes" (for example, I currently do not have any sympathy stamps or a nice yellow ink pad). ONLY fill the holes.
  • Use the above strategies to weed out my current stash. Donate whatever isn't staying.

I was going to add that if something had been on my wish list for more than a year or two then it was likely that I really did want that item, but then I thought "If you want it so badly, then why haven't you bought it already?", so now I'm re-evaluating those items with the above criteria, too...

I'm sure I'll be tweaking as I go, but that's how I plan to function this year! I have joined a Hostess Club, but my wish list follows my plan, and it will just barely allow me to fulfill this obligation
