#40bags40days - Update Week 3

I made a video update for this week (not the greatest quality - used the web cam on the computer)  have a watch and see my thoughts on week 3.

I really need to work more on organizing....when something comes into the house, it needs to find a home immediately.  I am forever grabbing bags and stuff from the car and "dropping" it when I come in....only to have a week's worth of "crap" piled up next to my sofa in the living room.

This week, I managed to get a bag of DVD's and a small bag of play doh accessories (that were well loved by my kids, but no longer used) to post on the Buy Nothing group, a bag of garbage from my purse (yes, a grocery bag full of crap to go) and hubby also tackled our bedroom.  In doing so, he cleaned all the clothes off the futon we have in there, got a bag of garbage (and 2 loads of laundry).

A total of 4 bags - not the 7+ I was hoping for, but it is still 4 bags of stuff less in my house - I am trying to think positively.

I am definitely finding that it needs to be a lifestyle change.  I am trying, but having some small set backs on the way, and I am hoping to be back on track for next week!

Don't forget to check out the progress the other bloggers are making too (links in the original post)


  1. Keep up the good work! We have started clearing out our house and are up to 5 bags this week!

    1. Thanks for the encouragement Jeff! Way to go on your 5 bags - you are on the way to getting ready for your big move!

  2. This is a great idea. Are you donating everything?

    1. Most has been offered up on the buy nothing site, so we have been giving it away. 1 or 2 things I will sell
