40 Bags in 40 Days-Post Two

Welcome to 40 Bags in 40 Days Post Two!

My bedroom was assigned this day.  I keep my bedroom extremely simple and just recently did a pretty redo so I'm going to share before and after photos also.




40 Bags in 40 Days-Post One

Hi Everyone!

I have had many requests to bring back my 40 Day posts so I am starting from scratch with them today.

For those who don't know what the premise is, it is to spring clean slowly, discarding clutter, giving away what we don't use or need, with the goal of having a fresh, clean, new beginning at Easter.

Sort of what we are supposed to do to our soul during Lent, but we are doing it in our homes also.


Garbage bags or grocery bags.  Whatever size is appropriate depending on an estimate of how badly our houses need it.  Black garbage bags are sometimes preferred when little children are present in the house and don't need to suddenly love the toy they haven't touched in two years that you are donating.

One bag is used for donations, one bag is used for garbage.


Spring Cleaning 101 (Or Pretend to Sell This House)

Thought I'd repost this since I started my spring cleaning method this week!

Here's how I spring clean:
1. I buy a notebook.
I make a heading for each room. Even closets.
I imagine that I'm a potential buyer of this house. You know...PRETEND!...and see the room through someone else's eyes.
I stand in each room and look around and see all the imperfections.


Encouragement For The Week-Be Brave

This is not my child but if it was I'd be so proud.
