40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge – My Journey – Day 1

I came across the 40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge in a post a friend had posted on facebook.  I have a tendency to hold on to things I don’t really need.  I moved once with a 16 foot truck of STUFF.

16 foot moving truck for 1 person.

I don’t want to do that again.   I am on my journey to reduce and de-clutter.  With a toddler it makes the chore a little more difficult because I want to keep everything of his.  To help in my venture to de-clutter I have signed up to be a seller at Too Cute To Toss  event on April 5th and 6th to sell as much of my son’s clothes and “stuff” as I can.  I can’t wait to see how I do after 40 days.

The “official” 40 bags in 40 days started on March 5th and ends on Easter Saturday.  So if anyone asks me “what did you give up for lent?” don’t be surprised if you get the answer “stuff” because for me not holding on to something that may have one day had value or a memory attached is a HUGE step for me.  The plus side to all this…  My fiancée will be very happy to se so much stuff going out the door and not coming back in.  🙂

Wish me luck on my journey.    I will try to post different areas along my 40 day journey.

Day 1 – My craft area (might take 2 days) –  It needs desperate help…
