40 bags for 40 days


I have just been catching up with some blogging and came across this idea from Corrie over at Retromummy. Some of you might know that I'm not a religous person but this seemed like a brilliant idea.The idea being you rid your home of a bag a day for the 40 days of Lent. It's up to you what you do with the stuff, give it to charity, to friends or family, ebay it or throw it away it doesn't matter.
 I guess this is a new twist on spring clean. I know I'm late as Lent started on Ash Wednesday which was last week (9th Mar 11) but I'll give it a go now where did I put those bin bags.

I wasn't quite sure what you meant by bags to start with, had visions of your wardrobe filled with handbags to give away! I now realise my mistake and it's bin bags of things yiou no longer need/use, a great idea, although my husband makes me giveaway stuff all the time (then my mum gives me more of her stuff when she visits! Hee hee!). Freegle is a great place to offer things up to people! :) x
