40 bags of stuff.

40 Trash Bag Challenge — Day 7

40trashbags

Today is Tuesday,  March 3, 2009

This is the seventh day of the 2009 40 trash bag challenge.  The challenge is an  opportunity to remove the excess clutter and “stuff” from our lives.  The excess can be given away, sold, donated or trashed.   The first goal is to let go; the second goal is to bless others.

Today’s  bag of stuff for our family will come from the girl’s room.  I am going through the winter clothing in anticipation of spring and culling out all the worn, stained, or damaged clothing and tossing it.  The excess that we have accumulated goes to Goodwill.

Since I was ill yesterday I am cheating shamelessly by asking my teenager to fill a bag from the stuff in her room.

Today’s Scripture Reading

Quote for the day: “If you yourself are at peace, then there is at least some peace in the world.” Thomas Merton

Reading St Clare from our saints book.

Craft:  nothing planned today.

Lap book page: We are doing a “catch-up” day with our schooling so we don’t have anything for today.
