As you're working on your #40Bagsin40Days, don't forget your digital trash! Sort your emails, set up your cloud transfer so your phone photos are backed up, clean out old files, set up archives...more and more of our life is digital, don't forget to keep it clean!
What's an appropriate number of tank tops to have-- layering, camis, dressy, workout, everything. Is 40 too many? But seriously...

QUICK task for #40bagsin40days--
You need: 10 minutes and your own house
Collect: 5 things to put away, 5 things to give away, 5 things to throw away
Try not to cheat! GO!
“I tell people to pick one spot — whether it's just one drawer or one room — and don't zigzag across the house...Finish whatever you start.”
"Once people realize chaos is causing stress, they can get to work on getting organized. They realize that they could do more in less time if they learned how to be more efficient...”
There are a few good points and tips in here:
I can't stop! Anything I put on that is remotely questionable, any homedecor that isn't currently in use, any toy that's no longer age-appropriate-- GONE!
My garage is basically a staging area for donation, hand-me-downs, flea market, and Kids Kloset Swap!
I actually love cleaning up and cleaning out and just plain cleaning, but man it takes so long. There goes Sunday!
Some of these seem like no-brainers (and most I have done-- and recently!!), but this is a good list for quick de-cluttering. If you're working toward 40 bags in 40 days, or just general Spring cleaning, pick a few for this weekend!
I love this! Whether you follow this schedule or not, time it to Lent or not, reach 40 bags or not, I encourage you to try this! (And really, if you can get to 40 bags, that's kind of scary...) I just saw this today, but I have a head start. I already have a few bags to sell at Kids Kloset Swap, a few to take to Goodwill, and a couple to trash! I can't dedicate the time to do a bag a day, but I hope to continue into the Spring.
I have a MILLION gift bags. If they're in good shape, I tend not to trash them, but I didn't really intend to accumulate this many (spoken like a true hoarder). I haven't bought one in years, I guess I just don't use them as often as we receive them-?! Do you keep them? How do your store them?
(Can you tell I am so anxious for Spring cleaning?)
