228 Clearing out the Self Help Books

#hourglassconversations #womenover50

We’re tired of clearing out books, especially those self-help books we’ve held onto for years? This week, we had fun with this topic and share a couple time-saving ideas.

We have a couple friends who have commented they would never buy a self-help book. We, on the other hand, have probably spent enough on these books to have bought a small car (or beautiful jewelry). Books we thought might help or improve ourselves.

Looking back, were they useful or not? Who knows? Either way, they’re no longer on our bookshelves. Self-acceptance of who we are now is so freeing! And makes getting rid of those books much easier.

Share your stories and interesting self-help book titles you once owned in the comments section below.
