Podcast 324 | Just in Case

In this episode of The Minimalists Podcast, The Minimalists discuss the three most dangerous words in the world—Just. In. Case.—and they answer the following questions:

  • Should I hold on to collectibles so I can pass them on to my children if they become valuable?
  • How do I address a hoard of just-in-case items I’ve stashed for use at work?
  • How can boundaries help with just-in-case items?
  • How do you address the ‘I-told-you-so’ crowd regarding just-in-case items you purged that you must purchase again?
