    Okay, I ended up, between the two vehicles, with FIVE bags of recycle and one bag of trash. I think I mentioned in an earlier thread that I was going to give myself 10 points for large trash bags (talking lawn/leaf bag), so I'm going to do that, and give myself 15 points for each recycle bag, because I am doing the "green" thing, which requires an extra step on my part (hauling the bags to the dump). So, I have a total of 85 things flung from the cars!

    Well, in my defense, they are both BIG vehicles. Lots of room for clutter!! I also went through and tossed a lot of duplicates (boots, gloves, etc.) in the work car. The truck was full of plastic bags from when I was overwhelmed by my Freecycle request for shopping bags. (It has a shell, so I ended up tossing them all in the back.) The shopping bags alone filled three of the recycle bags!!

    throwing away those shopping bags isnt very green.

    and how in the world can you throw away boots?

    Not much flinging today. I'm hoping to do a massive overhaul over the weekend, but Lauren just caught my cold, so I'm sure I'll be taking care of her a lot too.

    Today's total...a whopping 7 items LOL

    I'm not throwing them away. I am recycling them. The dump has a recycle center.

    After you have tracked them through enough fire scenes, even leather boots can have a finite lifespan!

    Going crazy today. Someone I know is giving yardsales to help pay for their 2nd adoption, so a box 'o stuff is getting built for that: 2 rope lights, the nonworking one is going to the dump, 2 old drills in their cases, a wire dish drainer, a pair of bookends, 3 display stands (from the shop), 2 cups and saucers, and a bread pan! 16 items Whooo-hoo!
