At first I was a little defensive, thinking, “Really? He thinks I need this?” But I had to be honest and say, “Wow – he really knows me.”

I’ve always heard that clutter equals chaos and that decluttering equals freedom. I certainly know the first to be true! If you are clutter challenged, this might help you too.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”false” marginless_columns=”true” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h5″ accent=”false”]SO WHAT’S “40 BAGS IN 40 DAYS”?[/x_custom_headline][/cs_column][/cs_row][cs_row inner_container=”false” marginless_columns=”true” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text]”40 Bags in 40 Days” is a 40-day period in the spring (coinciding with the 40 days of Lent) where you declutter one area each day. The goal is one bag per day; however you can have more than that or fewer than that. The 2017 Challenge starts March 1 and ends April 15. You don’t have to wait for the official challenge? Start now!
