Learn to Th otv Away
A friend of mine who van about bp
move wa#
accumulated "truck" -1 can U rt
no other equ - #)
and was throw; l. Of It
into the waste . -kef. 'It mas s n
feel dreadful to throw ah these iho-gs
away," she said.
"Why?" I asked" Do you thing you'll
ever need them again?"
"Oh no," she said, "only it seems
terrible to throw them away after I've
kept them so many years, given them
valuabe houseroom and sorted and
tidied them up every year. The time
and space I've given them sort of
makes them seem valuabe, though I
never got any good out of them.''
Isn't that a suggestive statement?
How many of us have closets and
bureau drawers and chests and garrets
filled with "truck," whose only value
is the time it has eaten up and the val
uable houseroom it has filled.
Do you know how to throw things
There are a great many people in the
world who never master this art. Ac
cumulating is a mania with them. It
seems to hurt them to destroy, or give
away, or otherwise get rid of any ar
ticle no matter how remote is the
cnance of their ever having any use for
The wise person who understands
the art of elimination as well as that
of accumulation, asks of each object
that is taking his time and space, "Is
it likely that I shall ever use this
again?" And if he thinks it is not, he
gets rid of it. He knows that the an
noyance it will cause him to have a
burden of unused objects in his home
is greater than the annoyance he will
feel from having gotten rid of one or
two things that he might have used
The unwise man with whom accumu
lation is a mania asks, "Is it possible
under .any ; combination of circum
stances that I would Jjever want this
again?" and accumulates accordingly.
I once had an elderly relative who
acted on this principle,
had been a dressmaker and she actual
ly insisted on keeping all the paper
patterns from which her mother had
cut gowns thirty years ago. "Oh they
might be useful sometime," she would
insist vaguely but obstinately when she
was urged to get rid of this clutter
and make the house more habitable.
She never used them and, of course,
they were thrown pel-mell into the fire
along with several cartloads of similar
stuff by her heirs.
Learn to throw away.
The ability to accumulate is valuable
but the ability to choose and eliminate
is equally so.
There is scarcely one of us who doe
not possess too much, who does no
need to make a raid upon his or hef
house 'about once in so often, and
sternly get rid ofithose articles which
are hindering rather than serving. |
