Uncluttering for Lent



Dear friends,

After creating a Decluttering Snowball Plan last month, I’m motivated to unclutter the spaces in our house, room by room.

Lent started on Wednesday. As you probably know, the 40-day period between Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday is a time when some religious believers abstain from certain food or temptations, following Jesus’ 40-day fast in the desert in preparation for his public ministry.

I’m doing something a little different this year. I’ve decided to give away a box or bag of usable items every day for these 40 days leading up to Easter.

I guess you could say I’ll do my best to give up clutter for Lent. Would you like to join me?

If you’d like updates and organizing tips, you can also request to join the private January Money Diet Community Facebook Group where I post all year about saving money and creating a nice “nest.”

Hugs to you, and enjoy this contemplative season,
