40 Trash Bag Challenge Starts Tomorrow
February 16, 2010 § 1 Comment
Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday and the start of the 40 trash bag challenge.
When possible I plan to donate those things I am getting rid of. There are many things I have that I do not want and do not need but would be perfectly serviceable for someone else. Then there are things that have stayed in my home that are sheer folly — I don’t need them – I don’t want them – I will never use them – in some cases they aren’t use-able but I don’t let them go. I cling to something material when I should just let it go.
But the first bag is going to definitely be a useful bag. I am going through my closet and I am going to be brutal. If I haven’t worn something in a year, and I have no plans to wear it in the next few months, if it doesn’t fit today it is gone. I will allow myself three exceptions and the rest is going to charity.
