Have you heard of 40 Bags in 40 Days? I just saw this yesterday on White House Black Shutters and thought that it would be the perfect thing to add to my Lenten devotions and get some of this crap out of my house! She even hosts a closed Facebook Group for support!
40 Bags in 40 Days is a “challenge” where you focus on cleaning one area per day during the 40 days of Lent. Of course you could do this at any time, and do not have to be Catholic to participate. The goal is one bag a day of trash, donations etc. You can have more or less, and any size bag that works for you! I plan on running to the store today for some smaller trash bags so that it is not as overwhelming for me. Those big black ones look overwhelming!
If you do not think you have enough stuff for 40 bags, you can try focusing on 40 spots in your home. White House Black Shutters has a printable to help you with this, and I found quite a few more on Pinterest. I do not have a list, but plan on posting my progress on Instagram each day, with a wrap up here on the blog on Wednesday’s.
So, are you ready to join us and clear out 40 bags of stuff in 40 days yet? Worried that you missed a day or two because you did not see this in time? No worries! Just jump right in whenever you can. You might surprise yourself and catch up! If you post your progress on Instagram don’t forget the #40bagsin40days hashtag when you post so that we can all follow along with you!
