I Challenge You To 40 Bags

Hey friends! So much in my life is going on right now and I feel like I can't keep up with all the things I want to write about. I stumbled across the Little Lucy Lu blog (so cute!) from a Pinterest search on something for Jack's room and kept searching for some other fun DIY projects.

Inspired? Yes. Motivated. You betcha! So here it goes....

Contrary to popular belief (or maybe my husband's), I enjoy purging things in my house. Now, right at this moment, after a massive move, it seems to me like me house it just full of "stuff" and I can't breathe. Before we moved, we donated about 8 bags/boxes worth of items that we didn't need, couldn't store, or just didn't want anymore. I love Goodwill and go there for all Jack's books. It's my treasure trove. 

So, after seeing this blog post, I figured, well, my life is in boxes anyway, so this is probably the best time to do it. Plus, it'll motivate me to get my boxes unpacked quicker so that I can make this goal attainable. I'm taking a direct quote from Little Lucy Lu:
"The idea is pretty simple ... purge your house of 40 bags of stuff in 40 days (during the 40 days before Easter, otherwise known as Lent).... if it's cluttered or can use some clearing-out, it's on my list."
Okay, I know it's nowhere near Easter. But, it's nearing Thanksgiving and Christmas and frankly...it doesn't really matter when you do this. Just do it! My list of spaces includes so many areas:
  • 5 closets (Master Closet, Jack's closet (this might account for 10 bags alone), linens, downstairs closet, storage closet)
  • Pantry
  • Dressers (Master, Jack's)
  • Storage bins in attic
  • Spice Cupboard
  • Toy Bin
  • Both Cars
  • DVD, CD, and Electronics
  • Office Extras
~ Just like the other bloggers who have done this....
I know there are other's out there ready to go. So who's with me?!  :) ~
