Downsizing

Downsizing

I currently rent a room in a condo, after having a large-ish 1 bedroom apartment. Most of the stuff from the old place is in storage. I'm getting ready to move into a ~400 sq. ft. apartment (one bedroom), so know that I have more stuff than will reasonably fit in there. I don't want to continue paying for storage, so will need to purge some stuff. What's a good guideline? If you haven't used it/warn it in x years, toss it... Also, I know there are a lot of knick knack type things, and with the limited space, how can I display them without the place looking cluttered? The space is fairly square, with a decent amount of wall space in the living and bedrooms. I'll post some pictures once I take possession of the place. I'm excited about this move, and have enjoyed reading all of the creative ideas!
