I started this challenge before I knew it was a challenge.  

The idea is simple and I guarantee it will make you feel better.

A forty day period in the spring (coinciding with the 40 days of Lent) where you focus on cleaning one area per day. In this one area you challenge yourself to declutter, simplify, decrapify, and get rid of things you don’t need. The goal is one bag a day but you can have more or less.

All that stuff. Stuff you don’t even think about, weighs you down. It not only clutters your house, but your life and your mind. 

This decluttering stuff is refreshing. Perfect for this time of year when Spring is right around the corner (it is, I promise!)

I happened to start this past week with our pantry and our master bathroom (drawers and closet). That came out to be a total of 6 bags. Being OCD, I’m going to try to not really focus on the number of bags, but the spaces that are being decluttered. 

Got questions? Get answers.

Let me know if you plan on playing along. I’d love to follow your progress.
