The 80/20 Rule
Lately, I keep on coming across this rule. Basically, it was originally created to describe the observation that 20% of people own 80% of the wealth. Lately, whilst reading The 4-Hour Workweek, it was mainly applied to the scenario of 20% of your activities taking up 80% of your time (and making you inefficient). However, naturally, it also applies to clutter. For starters, look at your wardrobe. Do you wear 20% of your clothes 80% of the time? Read the great post that lists a number of areas where this is relevant to clutter over at Becoming Minimalist.
