    Those are the hardest, madhen! even as you're flinging, you get bit by the repurpose bug!! The line between purposefully re-using things and simply being a packrat is a hard one to draw sometimes. Your best intentions turn into the awful clutter we all know and hate!

    went through my kids summer clothes for this year got rid of a ton of winter stuff about 70 things.

    Why do kids have so much clothes anyway? Each of my kids still have more then me and my DH put together.

    I went back through the bath room and got rid of 20 more things and moved a few older towels to my chicken area. I don't know how I could have this many more things from this little room. I already did this room once about a month ago. None of this stuff was new, it was there before.

    Also...I have removed 45 things from other places in the house..this number doesn't surprise me at all, but the first number does..........so my total for today so far is 65

    24 more for the Goodwill bag. DH will drop off tomorrow after work. He has to pass by on his way home. No wasted gas.

    My Mom gave me two new summer shirts today so I threw out two that were getting old and yucky (stains, rips) so I will leave my total the same.

    Welcome to the challenge, geckoace!! Flinging is like Jello - there's always room for more!!

    Hey, I had my bunny, who lives inside, neutered yesterday. Does that count as two flings?

    I am hoping to get to the closet later today for a little "afternoon delight" of flinging, so I'll report numbers then. Meanwhile, I did fling another 10 items yesterday while going through my beading (broken beads, tangled silk thread, etc.)

    It's DUMP DAY today!

    I wonder what I can fling today? I'd planned on going thru my office last night and getting things from there, but threw my back out yesterdy afternoon.

    So, I have to fling things gently today...but the search is on!

    Did you give yourself a point for flinging your back?

    Gave away 3 computer games to neighbor for her boys, DD #2 has out grown these games.
    Gave away 4 pair of jeans to neighbor for her DH that used to belong to my DH.
    Also gave her a bottle of shampoo, bottle of conditioner, and dish soap from my stockpile. She can't get that stuff with food stamps. Rough times, her DH is laid off and she works only part time. He is getting unemployment but that won't last forever. She's the same neighbor I gave the quilting fabric to a few weeks ago.
    Plus 7 items tossed. Total today 17.
