Forty Bags in Forty Days

Last year during Lent - I tried to do a 40 bag project in 40 days. After trying really hard I finished with only 31 bags by Easter Sunday. I felt like a loser. I kept going for a few more weeks until I hit 40 bags. However, today I made good start! Hopefully, I will make the 40 bags well before Easter.

The basic premise of this project is to sort through your closets and cupboards and donate the things that you no longer need. I also include bags that I make for Meals on Wheels, recycling and a local food pantry. I update this list every time that I make a bag.
