Letting Go of Unwanted “Treasures”

An Article by Dad
For some people cleaning up relics from the past, such as books, hobby materials, and etc. can be a very hard job. Here is an idea that may help:
  1. Pray for strength to let go of the past.
  2. Make mental categories of the things that are taking up too much room such as: a) old school work, b) work items, and c) hobby items.
  3. Pick one of the categories that you need to clean up.
  4. Go through that one category only, separate it into three groups: keep, throw away, and store out of sight.
  5. When you are finished with one category pat yourself on the back. Then take a break or start on another category.


  1. Great idea! Doing one category at a time would really keep things under control.

  2. I like the idea to pray for help at the start. I hadn't thought of that, but I'm sure it would really help the whole process.
