Bag a Day Challenge
Yesterday I was talking with my friend Sarah. Check out her blog here. We both agreed that we have too much clutter in our lives and we want to do something about it, ridding ourselves of non-essentials. We decided to go for it together. We are going through our entire homes! Our goal is to clear out a bag a day.
It goes in the bag if:
1. you don't use it
2. you don't love it.
3. you won't need it at some point.
So far I have several different bags going.
I know it seems like a lot of work. We are going at it for two weeks! I bet we can all come up with 14 bags, easily. Do you want to join us? If you do you let me know in the comments, with a link to your post, and I will include it here!
My plan is to be systematic. I am going room by room and leaving no stone unturned, no throw pillow unconsidered.
I began in our bedroom. I went through all of my clothing and cleared out things that don't quite fit right, that I don't really like, any clothes that leave me feeling meh. Why would I want to wear things that don't make me feel good?!? I easily filled a bag. Total time: 20 minutes as I tried on several articles of clothing that hadn't been worn in ages.
