40 Bags, 40 Days

I saw a new cleaning/organizing challenge and I'm all over it.  After all, it's a SMART* goal.

The goal is...

40 bags out of the house in 40 days!

Those bags can be garbage, donations, giveaways, whatever, and you choose the size of the bag.  (When I told my kids about it to rally their participation, they thought a snack bag size of bag would be great, but I'm thinking grocery bag size.)  My day 1 was yesterday, and I took that bag out of my bedroom.  Seeing as how I've been bad enough about starting (lots) of blog post without finishing them lately, I'm not even going to think about updating daily or weekly or anything.  Update at the end will be good enough for me.

It's a whole different type of motivation, though, looking at things with a "what can I kick out to reach the get rid goal?" mentality.

Who's with me???

(Jamie, you're automatically recruited.)

* For those that don't know, a SMART goal means that the goal is:
S - Specific
M - Measurable
A - Attainable
R - Relevant
T - Timely
