If you're unfamiliar with the one in-one out rule, let's take a moment to review.
In short, it means that for every item you bring into your home, you'll get rid of something already there. It sounds a little strict, but trust us. It'll save you from sorting through mounds of clutter the next time spring cleaning season rolls around.
The rule can be tricky to implement around the holidays when gifts are involved. Apartment Therapy contributor Shifrah Combiths has a few guidelines to help you work through that. When it comes to the rest of your possessions, you can try Marie Kondo's "Konmari" approach, or one that we favor: A good old-fashioned reward system.
Here are 10 items we think you absolutely deserve to bring into your home for every ten you get rid of during your spring purge. (Get it? Purge and then splurge.) Enjoy!
