Have I reached my 40 bags? I haven’t been keeping super track lately, but I think I am probably close. What I’ve accomplished has been kind of amazing -I’ve gone through every closet and cabinet in our home and de-junked it. A few different categories have become better organized and centrally located, which makes life easier. Things we are no longer using have made their way to Goodwill and a garage sale and are being useful to someone else. Other things have been disposed of, because sometimes it’s just time to be done.
I feel a little lighter, and there is less cussing when I open particular closets and cabinets. I’m thinking there are a couple of ways to do this on a regular basis — either at the start of each season, just work through the house like I’ve been doing, until it’s done. Another option would be to take a spot a week, or assign each space in the house a day of the week. I’ll be experimenting with what works, but I’m hopeful some of the organization will last.
