40 Bags In 40 Days Challenge

I'm making a list of the things I want to accomplish during my 40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge that starts March 5th. I’m looking forward to finding things that I can purge to further my goal of a Simpler Life. There will be a lot of textbooks and paper leaving my home during Lent. I am modifying the Challenge to fit my needs since my home is mostly decluttered. I want to do a Detailed Spring Cleaning, and make a dent in a few projects that I want to finish by the end of 2014. I’m gathering each of my projects into the same location so that I can better see what I need to work on. I’m going room by room to see what I would like to change. I’m asking myself if the room is functional and what I can do to improve it. I have less to clean when I put things away after use, everything has a place, and I have a system that is functional for my family’s needs. I’m making a small budget and a list of needed purchases.  I may not use bags for some of the things I purge since a lot should be books. The point of the challenge is mostly to clear the clutter and organize my home. Its good to make your own rules for your home and to challenge yourself. We have 15 days how are you getting ready?
