40 Bags in 40 Days: Finish

The 40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge is official over! I can’t say that every day has been easy or even that our house is now clutter-free, but our space is completely changed! Every area is now usable, organized, and calm, so that we can spend time in each room without any stress. I would definitely do this challenge again!

(See all my past de-cluttering posts here.)


My Week 6 De-Cluttering Schedule:

  • Car
  • Basement
  • Basement
  • Basement
  • Basement

Here’s a few before and after photos. There’s still some work that can be done on the basement, but it’s much better now!







I would always recommend getting rid of the things that don’t fit into your space, but in the case of our basement, a second shelving unit was a lifesaver. We have minimal storage in our apartment, so the basement is crucial for storing our things. There’s still a lot of work to do, but at least it’s organized and we can find everything!

Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”


I hope to connect with you more! Follow me on Facebook to keep in touch!
