    Twelve more items flung, including some old cleaners and antiseptics that i don't use, and some items to thrift (2 pots and a pan, a few knives, and a paper towel holder).

    I'm in! I have got to get a handle on this place. I always feel like our house is tiny but really I think the problem is not the size but how we are using the space we do have. I need to declutter and organize! So that's my big goal for this year. 2012 in 2012 watch out junk!

    Flung a Christmas present today that was so hideous, I didn't want to inflict it on anyone else.

    I'm bad about keeping count...but I just took a whole load (back of my Rav4, seats down) to the thrift store. I'd guess at least 200 items. And today was trash and recycle day and I dragged every scrap of anything I couldn find to the curb!

    Okay maybe it won't be 'so' bad? I just went into ds room and flung 56 items of clothing (I had kept bags that didn't fit with the intent to sell them, but they just keep hanging around - time to get rid of them) and we went through his pajamas and pants and got rid of a few. 1956 items left to fling here

    ~Of course you can do it! If it simplifies your flinging, you can assign a number value to bags of stuff purged. I sometimes weary of counting so I count a grocery bag full as 25. If it's all papers I may count it as 50. You can estimate however you want.
    Some hot spots to start at, for me anyway, are the plastic container drawer, family socks, the "mail center"(magazines, expired coupons and flyers) and the fridge. Get your feet wet today and think about where you want to work tomorrow. ~

    Thank you I think I'll count it out as I'm so curious how much 'stuff' we can get rid of LOL. DH came home for lunch so I asked him to drop it off in the donation box on the way home from work tonight. Will see what else can be flung today as I clean the house. Never thought to count papers etc - have a lot of papers to sort through as well - but that is for another day

    I just flung another 73 items (of various clothing) that no longer fit our family or was hand me downs that we couldn't use. So my total flung today (and this year) is 129. Feels good, but is kind of embarassing I have that much to fling in a day ... and <gulp> I dont think I'm done yet today (when I get on a roll it's best to keep going) ...
