Clutter drives me bonkers. Too much stuff is slowly starting to drive me over the edge (who would have thunk it, right?!) I mean, I’m the girl who has EVERY. SINGLE. birthday card from the ages of 1 through about 14. (My favorite one being when I was turning 7 from my Grams and PaPa…it’s a SCENTED Strawberry Shortcake card. My Grams wrote “Love you oodles and bunches” on the inside. Love it.)
Anyhoodle, since I’m pretty much a blog stalker, I figured I’d take this idea and run with it. Although she does 40 bags in 40 days, I figured I would start small. We don’t really have much room for a lot of clutter in our apartment, and we downsized a lot when we moved here. So, I think 20 bags is a perfect starting point for us.
Essentially, you divide your home into areas and one by one, go through those areas cleaning, decluttering, organizing and getting rid of stuff. Even if I don’t get rid of 20 bags, at least my home will be spotless, right?
I figure I will start this next Wednesday, on Ash Wednesday. Not that I’ve ever given anything up for Lent before, but maybe this year I can give up some of my stuff.
Anyone willing to do this with me? 🙂
