The basic idea is to rid your house of 40 bags of stuff during the 40 days of Lent. Lent is a time of renewal, sacrifice, self-control, almsgiving and prayer. To me, this project is about taking time to reflect on what is really important. De-cluttering my life to make more room for what is real...God and my family. It's a way to reflect on how much we have and what we actually need.
Clean out a space a day for 40 days, collect a bag of things from each space to give away or donate to a second hand store. Make your own list of spaces you can de-clutter. Or have a garage sale in 40 days, and donate what doesnt sale.
