I’m off to a thrilling start with the “40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge.”
Each day I clean an area of my house and collect a small bag of belongings I no longer need. I empty the small bag into large sorting bags in the garage. I’ll go through everything after Easter.
On Saturday I collected two bags worth (guest room closet and cookbook shelf).
I also filled two on Sunday (office desk and Elena’s closet). Plus I went through files and shredded a bunch of documents, so I’m counting it as “three bag day.”
Today is only the eleventh day of Lent. You still have time to start the “40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge,” or should we say “40 Bags in 29 Days”? It’s never too late to begin. Look around your house. What could you lose and still be you?
I feel purified. Onward!
