    I took a leather jacket and some coupon inserts from last week to the girl I work with today.Oh heck, I almost forgot, I also took some M&M's (the new ones that look like gems). Woohoo I get to add another item to my count.

    Gave my DIL all the comics from the Sunday papers I have been saving for her. She wraps all of my grandson's gifts in them instead of wrapping paper. For being a young mom, she is almost as frugal as me. She also uses them for all the other kid's gifts she wraps. I'll count that grocery bag full as 1 item flung.

    10 more things for Goodwill. I've been shooting for at least ten items every day.
    12 to the trash and 2 candles to the emergency box in the shed.

    My grandmother gave me 3 tubs full of stuff. I've said before that I'm moving so slowly on this challenge that I'm not counting the things I bring in against the totals flung. It doesn't seem fair, since these things weren't even in my house, three days ago, but I'm going to count them anyway. I'm hoping that these three tubs will send my totals through the roof!

    Well I'm back at flinging old photos. I have almost a whole grocery bag full again. I've gone through an entire album today. I've had it. The next album was a bunch of photos of my Gram and her family. I just put it aside. I can't see getting rid of much in there. I'm taking a break. I get too involved in these photos when I go through them.

    Eight more things added to my total today. Socks, an enamel pan, misc. metal bits, etc. (There may be more, it's dump day!) With the 8, my total today is 250.

    Well, now that my grandparents have moved on from their visit here, I sat down to go through the three tupperware tubs of stuff they brought me. Everything from plastic hangers to old homemade christmas ornaments. I put a lot of it in one tub for the garage sale (which has been postponed......), and threw quite a bit of it away. My mother would have a heart attack if she saw all the stuff I threw away. The thing is, I don't know who made these things, they're either ugly or out of fashion or something I simply wouldn't use, and since I don't have any sentimental attachment to them, I will not have them cluttering up my house. We've got enough stuff as it is.

    So, with garage sale contributions and things thrown in the trash can, I've got a whopping 49 items flung today! Yay me!

    Free-cycled a cordless can opener and charger today. Tempted to count it as two, but I'll be straight and count it as one.

    DD#1 bought me an under-the-bed storage container w/attached lid right after Christmas on clearance, because it is red and green. I put all of my gift wrap, scissors, tape, ribbon, bows, gift boxes, etc. in it. All holidays, not just Christmas. Birthday wrap, etc. How organized I now have become.
    I tossed several pieces of wrapping paper, torn etc. Pieces of ribbon, empty tape rolls, etc. 10 total
    Several things for Goodwill and 2 shirts for my neighbors DH.
    22 total today.

    TSOO gave me permission to not count items that would be used to make other items that were being given away, Debbie, if that helps.
