40 Bags in 40 Days Check In Week 2

Week 1- 5 bags
Week 2- 11 bags
Total- 16 bags



This week was much easier since I pulled out ALL the stuff that's been lurking underneath my stairs. Some of it was even already bagged up and labeled 'donate' and the old me just chucked it back to the depths. I went through a lot of old clothing that was under there 'just in case' and let go of tons of it. Some is going to be donated and some of the nicer kids' clothes are going to a consignment store. Mr. Wright has been very patient with the fact that I turned our game room into this Hoarders-like mess since I pulled everything out and then promptly got too sick to drop it all off at goodwill. Today seems like a good day to leave my house for the first time since Wednesday, so hopefully he'll see an improvement soon!



I'm excited to see all the 'stuff' go and even more excited to get my laundry room finished and painted this week! I'm going to keep working on my remaining 24 bags while working a little Spring cleaning into the mix. I am hopeful that by the time Easter rolls around I'll have a purged, clean and organized house! And Mr. Wright will be a lot happier too, I'm sure...

I can't wait to take a picture and show you my progress. I don't even know how many bags I have. It is actually kind of disgusting. Thanks for getting this started.

Is it terrible that I want to go through your crafty crap and see if there is anything I can add to my crap?! lol I hit my 40 bags last weekend, but it doesn't totally count since Chris still hadn't taken my 20 bags from cleaning the kid's room to goodwill and we cleaned out the garage. Once it warms up I need to do the attic, but thats going to be painful.

I wish that I had crap to get rid of.... I just have boxes and boxes of books from my mom that are in every closet waiting for the kids to be a little bit older.....
I got rid of some kids' clothes and that was about all i had......
