A Twist on Lent

I love this concept from Sarah at Clover Lane: she gets rid of the extra clutter in her home during the forty days of Lent by clearing a small area each day with the goal of removing forty bags of things she no longer needs, adores, or finds useful. This is a great way to get through the spring cleaning promise in a manageable way and could be especially helpful for those of you who are interesting in downsizing your home.

Sarah recommends creating a schedule for yourself and dividing your home into forty manageable areas to work with each day. She cleans as she declutters to create a sparkling home by the end of Lent. She works with the goal of touching everything in the area she’s working on and forcing herself to take a look at each item and decide whether she wants to keep it, toss it, or give it away. You may be able to sell books to a local bookstore or Half Price Books, or you can donate them to Goodwill, the Salvation Army, or a local thrift store. Clothing can be donated or possibly resold at a consignment shop. Local churches or shelters may be accepting donations of items to benefit those in need in your community.

Just think–40 days to a decluttered home and by extension a clearer mind!

A daily check-in call could be the lifeline, the joy you give someone that makes the biggest difference in their perception of what old age is like.
