Regardless of your religious leanings, it's probably somewhere on your radar that it is Ash Wednesday. (Or maybe the bigger radar for you was that yesterday was Mardi Gras!)
That's where today's post starts. I like that idea of 40 items in 40 days. I saw this picture on Facebook today, which actually served as inspiration for this today.
There's also the larger tackle: 40 BAGS in 40 days. Yes, that would be some major "decrapifying" (to quote the image below). Given it's report card season, that seems pretty darn intense for this kid. But 40 items. I think can handle that.
So whether you observe Lent or not, it's a good way to gear up for spring, and carve out a little extra room in your closet. But whatever you do, don't throw it away (there IS no away). So go forth and donate or regifting. Keep those landfills free and clear.
