Days 1 & 2 of the 40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge

I am writing this on Day 3 of the 40 bags in 40 days challenge that I told you guys about in my last post.
I filmed a bit of my progress from Days 1 and 2 in a youtube video that I will leave at the bottom of the post.

So far, this challenge has been very eye opening only three days in.
I cannot believe how much stuff we have accumulated in our home! 
Especially since we make trips to the donation centre monthly! 

I guess when you have three kids though, the stuff just piles up without having time to notice.
I'm honestly feeling a bit overwhelmed today with ALL the stuff.

I am sitting here writing this instead of facing the mountains of stuff, because I needed a breather! 
Clutter majorly STRESSES me out.

I should have accumulated 3 bags by today but I have actually filled 7 bags already.
Some of those bags being garbage, but most of it I am either selling or donating.

Things I've learned about myself so far three days in:

1 - I don't let go of items as easily as I think I do. 
2- I need to try to give more experience gifts instead of things that just end up collecting dust on a shelf.
3- I'm pretty sure this is going to end up taking longer than 40 days!
