40 Bags in 40 Days



I am jumping on the 40 Bags in 40 Days BandWagon...
 Last year my fav Blogger to read, Clover Lane, did this thing for Lent where she cleaned and basically declutterd and organized her house- the goal for her was to fill at least 40 bags with eithet trash or donations withen the 40 days of Lent.
I remember reading it this time last year and thinking to myself, self that is a great idea, I should do that every spring at this time. Last year I was not in our house yet, so it wasn't really doable...but I remembered this year. And it looks like she is tackling it again this year.
So I am jumping on the bandwagon.
I have one bag of Trash and one bag of donation thus far....
I started in my kitchen.
Thus far I have tackled the pantry, the desk area, my main station, and also the entry foyer pantry and front closet.
I mostly reorganized pantry, threw out all the gluten products, reorganized meds and threw out all the out of date stuff...did some cleaning of the area. I went through my main station drawers and tidied up, and found lots to donate...

My Goals:
Kitchen- go through drawers, pantries, desks.
Master Bedroom
Master Closet
Master Bath
Hall Bath
Hall Closet
Caroline Room and Closet
Boys Room and Closet
Guest Room
Garage
Main Room ( tv hutch, icebox)

My main goal is decluttering, getting us more streamlined and down to keeping only the basics that we need in each area.
Organization is second on my list.
I would also really like to do a thourough clean of each room as I go.

FUN STUFF- but it needs to be done- now is as good a time as any, right???
