    I took a load (not really a whole load) of items to our local sheltered workshop: several books and magazines, DS's shoes and jeans. I estimate I took 20 items!

    Started to catch up my backlog of coupons. I stopped counting when I got to 35 insert pages tossed although I worked on it longer. I'm counting the 35!

    Woo hoo, way to go Madhen! I need to find a drawer like that for me to clean out! I'm fearing I don't have enough stuff left to fling.

    DH took the recycling out (2 boxes), and a large bag of clothes etc. to the goodwill. I'm counting it as at least 20 items. We've been cleaning and rearranging the house for Christmas.

    20 things TO the dump, nothing back.
    30+ old fliers, coupon insert pages etc eliminated...I'm determined I'm going to EMPTY the "coupon insert and other paper stuff I need to do something with (other than just file it) box!

    Did some general clean up in the pantry today too, 11 items going to the food pantry and 5 more out.

    66 things out today...no wonder I'm tired!

    Oh! I forgot! I delivered 8 books Friday....

    Over the past several days I have flung an absolute ton of coupon inserts, coupon booklets, papers from printed coupons and expired coupons. As of last night I am up-to-date on my coupons! I am going to count all that paper as 100 items because it was at least that much. Also, today I flung 5 magazines to a df. Yesterday I did 2 different rebates and I flung the forms, receipts and proofs of purchase that had been around here for almost a year (I'm not kidding). So I will count all of these as 110 items flung.

    Culled yet more inserts on the way to Concord today (DH drove). I didn't make it to the antique store, so all I bought were groceries, which I'm NOT counting!

    I took a Xmas three light string too, but didn't make it to the thrift shop either, so I still have it, it'll go to the dump Weds.

    I'm counting another 30 for all the inserts, etc. Another day of this and I should be CAUGHT UP!!!!

    I did bring back one thing though, I caught a cold.

    I was supposed to go to Boston and deliver 2 boxes of books (approx 100) tomorrow, but I'm not due to the cold.

    (Darn!)
