PROJECT: CLEAN HOUSE 40 Bags in 40 Days

Today was the day.  I started a deep cleaning of my house.  I got this idea from Sarah over at Clover Lane.  Sarah did this last year so I was hoping that she would do it again this year so that I could join in.  To see some of Sarah's tips, click HERE.

I decided to start in the master bathroom.  All five of us take showers and baths in this bathroom so it gets dirty very quickly.

Of course I had a helper . . .

This basket is supposed to hold hair stuff.

Here is all of the stuff crap that was stuffed down in there.

I really need a new make-up bag.  This one is stuffed to the guilds.

I never wear any of these.  What a waste of money.

I am either going to giveaway, donate, or sell this stuff at consignment.

After the bathroom, I moved on to the master bedroom. The nightstand/armoire/TV stand was a mess.

Here is the pile of stuff that I ended up with. All of this stuff will either be thrown out, consigned, or donated.

Check back for more bags.  Are you purging, too?  If so, leave me a link so I can check it out.


  1. This is such a super great idea! I think I just might join in!

  2. Decluttering is always rewarding. You can also try to donate some of your unnecessary stuff to charity.

  3. Lovely this post and nice idea for unnecessary stuff.....

  4. Wow, good job in one day. I am very impressed!

  5. Yup...I'm joinin' in. I've posted about it at and linked back..I hope that's okay!

  6. My son used to make the wardrobes look untidy, but after few years this has changed. Now he keeps all the room very clean and I am very happy of what I have achieved.
