    Default Small Fling Challenge

    Hey everyone! I know it's a holiday weekend, but wouldn't you be able to enjoy the holiday a little more if you didn't have to wade through stuff to do it?

    I challenge everyone to grab a grocery bag or other small trash bag and fill it. Walk through your entire house/apartment and pick up the papers, go through the mail, find the junk laying around and toss it! If you can't fill it from the horizontal spaces, then go into drawers, I'm sure something is lurking somewhere!!!

    Let us know when you are done!

    OK, I'm in. I'm in a cleaning mood this morning! It's kind of rare for me, so I need to take advantage of it while the mood strikes! LOL

    Pretty cool. It took me 15 minutes to fill a grocery bag. I sorted junk mail, old magazines and newspapers. Plus some old things from under the kitchen sink.

    Between yesterday and today, I was able to get rid of 4 grocery bags of trash. I was relentless and went in things and under things and everywhere!

    I love your little challenges. I'm going to force myself to gather a small bag of trash tonight after I get the kids to bed and finish putting up the baseboard in the kitchen.

    The mess is too overwhelming to actually clean, I think one bag at a time is the only way I'm going to be able to do it.

    I went through my mail for the week and filled a garbage bag full of miscellaneous desk trash. That doesn't even count all of the stuff I put in recycling. What's up with all of this paper? I also filled a paper grocery bag full of books that I have read and and put them in the garage to take to the library for a donation. Thanks for the nudge Amy!

    Embarrassed to say that I completed the one small bag challenge in under two minutes, without having to move from one spot
