Last year, I announced to the world that I was going to take the 40 Bags in 40 Days challenge during Lent. I made it, oh, about 13 days, which is actually not bad followthrough for me. I’d’ve guessed that I’d have quit that bitch by day seven, at least.
Going into Lent this year, I’m one year wiser and I’m child-free for six hours a day and I’m looking for distractions. I feel positive that I can make it all the way through, to somewhere around day twenty-two or three.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the 40 Bags in 40 Days challenge, and in case you’re too lazy to click that link from last year’s post, the task is simple: Remove one bag of clutter from your house every day for forty days (not including Sundays).
I’ve made my schedule, I’m stocked with garbage bags, and I’m ready to go. Last year when I made the schedule, I went room by room, starting with my bedroom. That was probably a good thing, since my closet was a wreck. This year, my closet is actually in decent shape (unlike the rest of the house), so I’m kicking things off with the biggest task: the kids’ closet. It’s an abomination. You don’t even want to know. Actually, you do, and I’ll be writing about my adventures in there tomorrow.
After that, I move to the kitchen, which was the one room I never got to last year.
What are you doing for Lent?
