Today I am updating you all on how my “40 Bags in 40 Days” challenge is going.
Seven days have passed since I first posted about this.
So, how’d I do? Did I keep it up or did I fall off of the decluttering wagon?
Well….so far I have rounded up 6 big trash bags full of stuff to pitch and 3 big boxes of items to donate. It feels great.
I’m glad that I did give myself grace as far as one area a day, because there were two days where I just didn’t have the time to tackle it. However, I was able to make up several areas in one day where I did have the time & energy to purge things.
One mistake I’ve made is trying to do this one day when the kids were here to see what was being taken out….not good. Especially when I hit their game shelving area. Suddenly a penguin game that I thought they were done with was the best thing ever and literally made one kid cry. I caved and let it come back in the house where they played with it for the next hour. Everything else left the house.
Areas I have purged so far:
Kids art/craft cabinet
Game plan for this coming week:
Master bedroom closet
Under the bed
Living room bookshelves
Upstairs hall closet
I’ll check back in another week to let you know how it has progressed.
So far so good!
