When I grew up I attended a Catholic school and we always celebrated Lent. Every year we had one or two things that we would give up in the 40 days before Easter. I continued this practice as an adult. In a few years, it may be a certain type of food. I give up certain activities for a few years. But every year the goal is to withdraw something that I enjoy doing or eating.

This year when I was thinking about what I wanted to do for Lent, I decided to do something else. I decided to disappoint. During Lent, I decided not only to destroy my home, but also to disappoint my life. I'm getting rid of things. But I love my things. I cling to my things. I always think I could use my things at a different time. Just as I have things that no longer serve me, there are also activities that no longer serve me.

Organize closetFor starters, I decided to only shop when absolutely necessary. Next, I decided to select five items to give away every day. This includes clothes that I don't wear, books that I don't read, dishes that I don't use. You get the picture. I have a pocket on the door to store things I give away. My new attitude is that everything has to have a place. If not, it has to work.

Getting rid of things in our lives can be difficult. We have built a relationship with them. It can get overwhelming because we often don't know where to start. We really don't know if we should keep it or give it away. To help me with this process, I ask myself three questions.

  1. Does it look good to me?
  2. Did I wear it recently?
  3. Have I used it recently?

    shelvesThis helps me to let go of the item. I've found that the more stuff I have, the more time and money I waste. I waste time looking for something in all my things and I waste money because I often buy it when I can't find it.

    Like me, you probably have many reasons why you have accumulated and kept your things. But remember, just because an item is still in use doesn't mean you have to be the person who uses it. If you no longer enjoy it or it is no longer useful, pass it on to someone who immediately enjoys it.
