So, I am sitting here, nursing the wee little hobbit, as usual, and listening to Skillet ~ Rise…loud and listening to the giggling and talking of my teen daughters, the shushing of them by my teen son who is trying to read the latest ebook
and I am thinking about what I am going to be up to for the next little bit, aside from wrestling with the wee boy for the keyboard (like I am now doing LOL…ok, big sister gets him so I can write) and while I don’t have anything do to with the time of Lent, or the holiday of easter in any way, now is the time when other people are having the neatest ideas and challenges, like this 40 bags in 40 days challenge, so I thought maybe I would join in because we usually clean the whole house thoroughly before Passover anyways and I have started, but I will ignore the part about 40 days and make my challenge that I will give away or declutter 1 grocery bag, or Freecycle a larger item each day from between now and Passover and I will pretend I started on March 1st because…well…I did LOL! I have 2 grocery bags of giveaway stuff in my car trunk and another 2 bags of paper clutter waiting beside my hubbies’ woodstove in his workshop waiting to heat up his workspace, so this is actually perfect timing.
I am pretty good at decluttering, I have no attachment to stuff, so for the most part, we have things we use and that’s it, but I know that my attic has a few things in there that I could give away on Freecycle, maybe some crafting supplies that aren’t going to get used anytime soon. So far, I have decluttered 2 bags of magazines and books, and then trashed 2 bags of paper clutter than never should have been printed out and put on my desk LOL! My desk is only half cleared, so I will still be on that tomorrow.
Also, my wonderful mailman dropped off a book yesterday that I am supposed to be reviewing. It’s called The 21 Day Financial Fast and the challenge is to only buy what is necessary for 21 days. That isn’t going to be very hard, we have some major bills coming up with our oldest son heading back to ALERT Academy to take Law Enforcement training, and our oldest daughter heading back to her favourite place on earth for 6 months, then the next 2 daughters going to a 6 week summer camp in the States in June…lets just say that a 21 day financial fast is going to be a forced thing for the next few months….lets call it a 90 day financial fast LOL!
So, what are you doing for your spring cleaning/ Passover Preparation?
