40 Bags in 40 Days

A week ago I had a moment of feeling totally overwhelmed by all the stuff in my house and decided it was time to clear out the excess. I had read about the 40 bags in 40 days project online and decided to give it a shot. The idea is simple - clear out 40 bags of stuff in 40 days. Although the 40 days are typically associated with Lent, I think this is the perfect time to clean out in preparation for the holidays.

I started today when I packed up our Halloween decorations. I weeded out the excess decorations that we did not use this year. I also went through our fall decorations to prepare for Thanksgiving decorating and kept only what I love and use. So I now have 3 bags of holiday goodies to take to our local Goodwill!

I was feeling motivated so I moved on to our utensil drawer in the kitchen and cleaned out another bag of duplicate and unneeded items. Day one and I already have 4 bags to donate!

Anyone up for joining me in the 40 bags in 40 days challenge?
