I really love this idea. So I am cleaning and decluttering with a minimum goal in mind of stuff to rid my house of. I think I can do one bags worth of stuff per day.
I was intrigued by the 40 Trash Bags in 40 Days Lenten challenge that made the rounds of Catholic mom blogs during Lent last year.
It’s a pretty simple concept: Just commit to ridding your home of 40 bags of “stuff” during the 40 days of Lent.
You can throw it away or give it away—garbage, clothing, toys, books, etc. You can pick the size of bag that makes the most sense for your circumstances—large garbage bags if you have a lot of clutter, smaller bags if you have less.
I don’t think the rules need to be hard and fast. Basically, the idea is to commit to 40 days of possibly uncomfortable “letting go.” A great way to observe Lent!
