Calibre question

Hello. I moved all my Kindle books over to Calibre (I was waaay behind in getting things organized on my Paper White). I think I want to clear off my Kindle and then transfer over only the books I would like to read in the next few months instead of having so many on the Kindle. How do I clear off my Kindle? Or is this not a feasible way to do this? Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

From the Home page: Menu > settings > menu again > re-set to factory defaults. That will clear the content and de-register it from your account. Then just re-register it and download only the books you want on it right now.

I did like M.Francis suggested a few months ago. It worked quite well.

That was fantastic advice! Thank you. Now my other question -- my old collections that I set up (the different categories I used originally "Mysteries" "Thrillers" "Non Fiction" etc) are still there apparently. They are not listed on my home screen with the 22 books I just downloaded BUT when I go to click on the book to add to a new collection, I see the old collections pop up. Any way to get rid of the old collection categories? Again, thank you in advance.
