Now that we’ve gotten rid of everything that doesn’t belong in this space, we can get a clearer picture of the things that will really be living there. Sort the remaining items into groups, or categories, of like things with like things. In our example, I’ve grouped the tools that will stay with the other tools that will stay, the batteries with the batteries, the screws together, etc.
This step helps you to take another look at how much you have of each item and perhaps to let go of any other excess you might not have realized you had in the beginning steps.
