Last year I took on a challenge with a friend to clear 40 bags from my home in 40 days. It was like an ultimate decluttering tool! So this year, I'm back at it again - this time it's my Lent 2012 challenge.
The initial idea came from here... and of course I Pinned it too...
Then I got rid of my 40 bags last year, and it made a huge difference to our home! And of course my self-confidence, the general tidiness of the house, our relationships, and so on.
SO! Who's keen to jump on board with me??
I'll post pictures of my 40 bags every few days and keep a ticker going of how many bags we can get rid of - every time you get rid of a bag, send me an email/text/social networking notification or leave a comment below the post and I'll add you to the big count.
This is how I'm doing my 40 bags challenge:
1. Buy a roll of 40 rubbish bags - check!
2. Write a list of zones in my home (40 in total, and maybe leave a couple of spaces to be filled in later)
3. Each day of the 40 days in Lent, aim to fill up one bag to be trashed, donated, given away, returned to original owner or whatever, it just has to leave your house!!
The best tip I am carrying from last year (other than a roll of bags and a list of zones) is to do this with a friend. We would MMS each other a photo of our bag or bags as we finished them and it was the best motivator for me.
Join me! I dare you.
