30 Bags in 30 Days: Day 4: My closet

It's been 8 days since my last active "30 Bags in 30 Days" purge. And, though this project might have been intended to get completed 30 days in a row, I'm breaking the rules & spreading the 30 days out a bit. It's just been too busy around here to get it done every day.
 I was in a funk today. I decided to take advantage of that funk & attacked my bedroom closet. I found that being in a funk was rather helpful in letting me discard things that I otherwise might have been attached to. I decluttered to the tune of 2 trash bags full: 1/2 a bag of garbage & 1 1/2 bags of items to donate to our church garage sale.
The bags of items are already starting to pile up in the basement downstairs.
It's really rather inspiring.


  1. Yay, you're doing it! This is inspiring me, but I haven't actually started yet :)

  2. Yay!! So inspiring. I do it often...but I don't put enough in the bags. We are staying in a beach rental that is VERY minimal. We are so happy here. I'm going home and going minimal!! Can't wait to start packing up bags with 'things' we really don't need. I think I might blog the 'before' and 'after' pics of each area. Great idea!

  3. I'm so much better at getting rid of things when I'm irritated. My house would be spotless if I was mad all the time! But then I would be mad all the time... So I'll just settle for a little mess :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Every time you do, I do a little happy dance. For reals.
