Seven days ago I started the 40 Bags in 40 Days De-Cluttering Challenge for Lent. And it’s been such a freeing and accomplished feeling. Not only do I see real improvement in the functionality of certain spaces of my home, but I’m also learning more about how I use specific spaces and what things I have (there’s a lot I forgot I owned).
Week’s 1 Schedule:
- Cabinet above the bathroom sink
- Cabinet below the bathroom sink
- Hallway closet
- Hallway hutch and bookshelf
- Junk drawers
- My purse
- My social media accounts
I’ve been doing daily Instagram Stories videos, so if you really want to see my thought process behind my de-cluttering, follow me @lindsmayland. But I’ll share a little before/after here, too!
The biggest change I’ve noticed is in my social media. I deleted quite a few friends, unliked hundreds of things, and have already noticed my Facebook newsfeed full of more relevant stories.
Altogether, I’ve gotten rid of one large trash bag of things, a recycling bag of papers, and two boxes of things to be donated. That’s a successful Week 1!
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”
