40bags Zones

Welcome to those who have joined me in the 40bags challenge!  Here's my list of zones:

I mentally went around our house in my head, and wrote down 34 zones that need attention.  I've left the last 6 blank and... well, as 2012 is the year that I am KIND to myself, I can always fill them in with the odd bag of rubbish or recycling that goes out with our usual weekly stuff!  As you can see I've also allocated 2 outside zones as I have gardens that are more weed-pits than plant-spots.  I also have 4-5 different zones within our garage - just split it up to make it easier to do one zone a day (or conquer a few in one go to give yourselves days off).

The space can be as big as a whole room, or as small as a single shelf or a drawer. 

So those of you who are going to try to go the whole hog: this is your next step!  Find a sheet of paper and write 1-40, then start putting down your zones.

Next post ... the ticker begins!  I have one bag all ready to go, and one from a Mama friend ready to add to the tally.  (She is donating plenty of goodies to a store in Wainuiomata who sell things at a ridiculously low price to families who are genuinely in need - impressive huh?)  Get to it, and remember to let me know when you've done a bag or more.  Who knows how many we can get rid of!

I'm 'winging' it - I have plenty of hotspots that will fill 3 or 4 bags each, and i won't run out of spots in 40 days, I don't think! I've put a thread on our forum (http://www.cheekymonkey.org.nz), and others have been inspired to join, too!

Thanks for the hollabacks. I'll see what I can find out about the Wainui store!
Bronwyn - thanks for sharing the love! I'd love to get updates on how many bags have been cleared so we can keep the ticker going madly on here.
