Sarah, at Clover Lane, spends Lent getting rid of forty bags of stuff throughout the forty days of Lent. Last year I attempted it, but didn’t succeed. This year I have decided on a new tact.
I have collected forty grocery bags and will fill each of those bags through the forty days of Lent. As I go through paperwork, a bag may be filled up with paper to be recycled. As I go through my son’s toys, a bag may be filled up with toys. And, of course, all of my Goodwill items will go in a bags as opposed to the box which sits in my garage.
What is going to make this year different? I already have the bags set out and ready to be filled. The bags are all grocery sized bags, which are not too overwhelming.
As I continue to get rid of things in order to simplify our lives, I look forward to this project. Will you join me?
