I have a dirty secret.
It started in high school. Then I brought it with me to college, and then into my marriage. Since then, it has grown and multiplied with years of neglect. There are a select few who know about this secret, and when they found out, they were shocked! “Alana, I never would have imagined you would allow this.”
This is my dirty secret (literally).
Welcome to our basement. 🙂 I have put off going through this jungle because 1). Other things were priority 2). Rehashing old memories may hurt too much 3). It seemed simply overwhelming.
Beginning May 12, she is going to take 31 days to eliminate 31 bags o’ junk from her house! She invited others to take on this challenge in their own homes. Given the fact that our basement has now become a hazardous zone, I gladly accepted!
Purging is a good thing.
I am looking forward to this challenge because: 1). It will eliminate clutter in our home 2). It will be energizing to slough off “the old” 3). Conquering this area will give me confidence to conquer other areas in my life that may need some “housekeeping” 4). It will provide room for new clutter. Just kidding. 😉
To make this challenge even more exciting, Josh has agreed that any money we make through eliminating our junk can be put toward a family vacation!
