40 Bags in 40 Days

“Start by making your own home a place where happiness and love abound, through your love for each member of your family and for your neighbour.  Try to put in the hearts of your children a love for home.  Make them long to be with their families.  So much sin could be avoided if our people really love their homes. 

Mother Theresa
I have made a commitment  to rid  my home of 40 bags of “stuff” during the 40 days of Lent.
 The basic idea is to commit to 40 days of possibly uncomfortable “letting go.” A great way to observe Lent!
I am excited to challenge myself to do this. With anew baby I am expecting in the next couple of months, I need to get rid of clutter.
Clutter tends to pile up easily around here with a large household and a pack rat hubby and a couple of the children are pack rats too.
I am usually a  ruthless purger. I do have down times, like this pregnancy of bed-rest and “morning sickness?”- (a huge misnomer)!
We did not purge the home after Christmas, so there are too many toys in circulation. I am not on my A Game. Things have been getting by me.
My Son Samuel loves to search our recycle bin and make homemade crafts.  So my work is cut out for me.
Taking it one day at a time sounds really doable right now.
