How To Purge Everything You Don’t Need From Your Desk
14 FADER staffers clean house for the new year.
This month, I'm reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. Marie Kondo's organizational bible teaches you to decide which belongings no longer bring you joy, so you can identify the the things that really matter to you.

Some items—a mysterious poster for the movie Signs, a promotional Girls flask filled with White Hennessy—were easy cuts. Others took a bit more bravery. Below, check out what we decided to purge.
