    Talking 2nd Annual Fall Fling!

    ~Last year we supported each other in a massive de-cluttering. Here's a link to last year's thread, https://www.frugalvillage.com/forums/...ght=fall+fling . I really need to do it again and I want to start earlier this year. I'm going with 1000 items again with a reward of an afternoon meal at the Teahouse! We have until December 21 to finish so who's with me?~

    1000 items?!?!?! that seems like a lot! Does a pair of shoes count as one or two items. I am guessing you count things individually?

    I might be up for that. I was looking around last night thinking that we are drowning in papers and JUNK!

    OHHHH, if you saw my other thread yesterday (about my personal organizational dilemma) you will know that this is exactly what I need! Especially with getting ready to move!!

    I'm in for 1000 items also. I'm not sure of my treat yet...I'll have to think about that one...

    I'm in too, although I have been working hard this summer. I'll begin at zero again. Does it start today or Sept. 21?

    Gee, don't know if I have 1,000 things to get rid of...does a hubby count?!?!?!?!?!!? LOL

    I will give it a whirl, this is the first time I have done this so I will hopefully get it right. I am gonna have a yard sale this fall, also, so that will help.

    ~I started off with the easiest places today to get myself into purging. I threw out 12 items from the plastics drawer, 5 boxes from my shipping supplies bin and then consolidated a bunch of lotions so I could throw out 4 bottles. So that's 22 to start!~

    Oh! I love it! I'm on board. I'll go for 1,000 as well.
    sounds like a lot but I think it it is definitely do-able!

    121 days and counting!

    Okay, I'm in. I have to admit that I already have my reward - finally gave in and bought a new aviary for my finches. I have been trying to figure out a way to justify it (other than that my finches deserve the space and will really enjoy the extra room). So this will be my way of clearing out the total square footage the aviary will take up (when I finally get around to tackling the chore of assembling it).

    Looks like a dump run is in order!

    Well I'm in again. I don't remeber if I did the 1000 last year or if I shot for 750 or so. This year it will definately be 1000. With the living room currently apart and the kitchen coming apart soon the more gone the better.

    I have 51 items for the yard sale and if they do not sell tomorrow they are not coming back into my house. Our local salvation army is low on donations. Might have to re-think my earlier post of 300 items....

    ~Woo-Hoo! This feels great! I found two more boxes to throw out(WHY was I saving all these empty boxes?!?)and I gathered up 8 shopping bags full of stuff I'd been saving all summer for a yard sale that I didn't have. I procrastinated and had this stuff in my living room all summer so I'm only counting it as 8. This stuff is going to Goodwill tomorrow morning.~
