Here is the last update for my Lenten plan to get rid of 40 bags in 40 days.
I deep cleaned my closet and really looked at the items inside it. I got rid of all the "stuff" I had plans to fit into, was holding on to for no reason and was worn out or stretched out. I was able to get 3 garbage bags of clothes out of my closet and drawers. I also had a bag of garbage. (4 bags)
Even though it snowed a week ago, I cleaned out the front coat closet. I got 2 bags from there in shoes, boots, gloves and coats.
I cleaned under the bed in the girls' room. Kid #3 is hoarder. 1 bag!
Got rid of a broken car seat (fit in a trash bag), broke down a ton of cardboard (I have a habit of saving the boxes of items I buy.) 3 bags.
I also cleaned out the laundry room! 1 bag.
That is 11 bags. Taking my total to 42 bags! Whoo Hooo!
This is a project I will continue. I am enjoying decluttering. Looking at my closet makes me happy!
