I get asked this question all the time so I thought I'd answer it for you! "How much should I really be throwing away?"
Grab a piece of paper and write down what percentage of things in your office you expect are trash. Do this right now! There's no right or wrong answer.
But whatever answer you wrote down, you will most likely exceed it.
So I don't actually have a set rule each client should stick to.
The number I want you to start with is the one that just came to mind, bumped up a little.
So please tell me in the comments - what number came to mind for you?
