40 Bags in 40 Days Project

It's that time again! It's Ash Wednesday today and that start of 40 Bags in 40 Days project. The Giving up of  clutter for lent. This is my third year doing the project and I'm so excited and ready to do it this year. 

I'll be updating weekly (If not more often) about my accomplishments and tips on how to clear the clutter. I will be coming from the slightly emotional hoarder side of things as I struggle to get my own clutter under control. You can follow along though with the 40 Days Guru, Ann Marie, at her awesome blog (One that actual gets updated). She runs White House Black Shutters and is amazing at DIY and organization. 

She has printables available (Which I'm using) and is also hosting a closed facebook group for those of us who need support and lots of direction! Come join in the fun this year and give up your clutter for Lent. 

You can see her post here

Here are by "Before" pictures in all their glory. The basement, which is my BIG decluttering project of the year.....And a few other small areas of my home that haven't been organized yet. 

I'm also tackling the Kids clothes....Tubs and Tubs of kids clothes that don't fit any of my kids. They are going! 

So....Come get motivated with me and I promise to update my blog more then once a year. ;) 


  1. Very good blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of
    any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about here?

    I'd really love to be a part of online community where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Bless you!

    Feel free to surf to my weblog Men's stuhrling watches

  2. This is the right blog for anybody who wants to understand this topic.

    You know so much its almost hard to argue with you
    (not that I actually would want to…HaHa). You definitely put
    a fresh spin on a subject that's been discussed for decades. Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!

  3. Outstanding post but I was wondering if you could
    write a litte more on this topic? I'd be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit more. Appreciate it!
