My adorable nephew already loves to read :-). Here’s a picture of him with his daddy’s books. Our whole family loves books. I’m incredibly fond of them. The smell of a library is intoxicating to me. I choose a trip to the bookstore over the mall every single time. But sometimes we can have too much of a good thing, and that’s NOT good.
Lent is here, and this year I am honoring this special season with a serious household purging mission. I want to have our things in order, so that I can easily say “YES” when God asks me to do something. The first step of order is to eliminate the unnecessary. I decided to tackle the thing that would be most difficult for me to say good bye to on this, my first day of “40 Bags in 40 Days“.
I saw some helpful tips from organizer Peter Walsh regarding these covered friends of mine. He suggests getting rid of:
#1. Books you are never going to read.
#2. “Gift books.”
#3. Books you no longer love.
As a lifelong bibliophyle and homeschool mom it’s going to be difficult to bid farewell to some cherished titles, but a clean & clear space will make my heart sing and free me up for better things.
