Trash Bag Challenge

I liked this 40 Trash Bag Challenge shared by Darcee at Simply Catholic. She says you can decide for yourself what size bag to use. She uses the large kitchen size and that seems like a good measurement for me.

Basically, the way I understand it, the idea is to get bags out of the house, whether to give away or throw away. This doesn't count the "normal" trash that builds up in the course of everyday life.

So maybe I'll keep count now as I progress through my Household Journey.

I'll have to estimate what I've done so far:

  • 1 bag of trash from laundry room and bathroom combined.
  • 1 bag of trash from art closet.
  • 1 bag of trash from the garage.
  • 1 bag of things that I burned in the fireplace in the past week, collected from the decluttering efforts.
  • 3 bags of things to drop off at Goodwill today -- mostly clothes and books.

So that makes 7 bags so far! Not too bad for about a week.
