    Default Ready Spring Flingers?

    Let's prepare by reminding ourselves that spring cleaning can be looked at as fun and liberating and not just a chore.

    To motivate you all, I'll be rewarding participants. Let's make spring cleaning fun. Prizes won't be dispersed until the spring cleaning missions are completed. You'll be rewarded with not only an organized home, but a treat from me as well.

    You don't have to participate in every single mission to be eligible for a prize, but a couple of posts won't earn a mailed reward. You'll still be eligible for an award though.

    Here's a breakdown of suggestive ways to participate for a prize:

    *Participation through posts
    *Participation through before and after pictures
    *Encouraging fellow flingers
    *Sharing tips and relevant links on spring cleaning, organization, and decluttering that pertain to each mission
    *Husband reaction stories

    Top contributors reap the best prizes.

    Hint on some of the prizes being awarded: Brand name pamper items. (ie. lotions, cosmetics, perfumes, nail polishes, etc) I'll be adding some fun cleaning items, as well.

    All members that participate will receive an award in their award case.

    If a mission is posted and you've already done that mission as part of your typical routine or whatnot, post about it so you get credit for participating. Take a pic to show it to get credit too.

    Checking in and reporting what you've done so far in a particular day is a good way to participate. I'll be doing the fling too and will do my best to post a play by play action of what's going on at the Noel's.

    I am very nervous about showing pictures! My house is TRASHED since I have had surgery. I guess this spring cleaning comes at a great time for me, cause it is SURE needed

    Ready! Thanks for rewarding people for their hard work, also! It's nice to have a motivation outside of a clean house!

    I'm moving next month, but I'd still like to participate! This will give me the motivation to go through all our stuff, and get rid of everything we don't want to take with us!

    Alright Sara, you convinced me to join, or maybe it was my house?

    It really helped me last year and then I just fell by the wayside, so I really, really need to do this! Thanks for giving us a week, my kitchen not only needs this, I get side tracked easily.

    I can't wait to get started. I'll tackle the kitchen starting tomorrow morning. Joe has to be at work at 10 so I will get started as soon as he leaves (although I have become addicted to watching reruns of "The Nanny" so I will have to take a break from 10:30-11:30)
