    Lightbulb Fling 2012 Things in 2012 Challenge!

    ~I love this challenge!
    It's amazing how much stuff comes into our homes over the course of a year. I kept track last year and I was shocked at how much came in(and I know I forgot to track some stuff!) Remembering to fling regularly will keep us from getting buried and owned by our stuff.
    So, can you part with 2012 items this year?
    That's 167-168 items a month.
    38 items a week.
    5-6 items a day.
    3 in the morning and 3 at night.
    Break it down the way it works for you. I like to do big power sessions of 50-100 items at a time, once or twice a week. I will also be counting the items that come into our home this year.
    We can do this!~

    You know I'm in! I'm not sure just how much I still have to go, but I'm sure I can find some! I'll need to get through the office, at some point and that will be good for a bunch.

    2012 in 2012? We can do it!

    I'm joining again this year. I only got rid of about 400 things last year, but it was a start.

    I am in on this one also, I think it will have to go hand in hand with the organizational challenge.
    I soooo need to clean out and reclaim our little house. So yep, I am in.
    I also need to go back through my posts and put the challenges that I am choosing to participate in, and put them in my siggy to keep them in my face

    I'm in! I fizzled out, tracking-wise, after about 1400 last year, so I'll try to do better this time!

    I lost track in 2011 but I flung a lot.

    In again this year. It's so freeing.

    I am cheating a bit. I cleaned up/out Friday and Saturday and am choosing to count those totals here.

    2 old baby food cereals
    1 painting sponge
    1 combining half empty bottles
    (5) sample size items
    1 pills
    3 coloring books
    1 broken hanger
    4 boxes
    (5) old receipts
    4 pair socks
    6 old tees
    19 shirts
    2 slacks
    6 Christmas returns-out of the house, so counting it
    5 pans
    2 crafts
    6 baby items
    (6) trash
    (2) old coupons
    3 creams
    2 shoe polishes
    1 table cloth
    13 cups

    Items in parenthesis are guesses because it was too many/small to count.

    I believe my total is 101
    2014 debts mortgage: 80,944.47(April 2009),71,782.91 (left to pay)
    All other debts: PAID IN FULL
    GOALS:
    To be debt free except mortgage by the May 2014 DONE
    To save $5000 by 12/13/14
