    Default MidWeek Trash Dash!!!

    Okay, tomorrow is Wednesday, Hump Day, Mid-Week day. We made it through the first half of the week, and on to the second.

    So, what do you say that we take some time on Wednesday to do a quick Trash Dash? Grab a grocery bag or other similarly sized bag and fill it by taking as many tours of your house that it takes. Go in drawers, look under things, go through papers, old mail, etc. Leave no surface untouched. If you fill one bag, feel free to grab another!

    Anyone with me?

    Will this count? Tomorrow is our trash pick-up day and I already took out a bag of trash, an old skillet, 2 milk jugs, an orange juice jug, and loads of papers.

    I'm in. I was amazed the last time we did this at how much you can collect and dispose of in just a few minutes time.

    Well our day was Monday but I am still in. I was looking in a drawer the other day for a remote we rarely need and next thing I knew I had that sucker cleaned out. My daughter opened it later and commented on how nice it looked. I think its time to get brutal with the magazine pile and the neverending stack of papers on my computer desk. That alone will fill a bag!

    I just cleaned off the bar in the basement, which is my gift wrapping station. There were quite a few things there which had accumulated over time. Ick! It helps that I was painting the wall behind it...it forced me to clean! Anyway, I filled a bag and a half. I'm about to go through my fabric and I'm going to donate the extra to dd's camp for the sewing class.

    Just cleaned out my purse. Thankfully, I did not fill a grocery bag with junk from my purse, but it is much more functional now!

    I also attacked dh's desk, and by the end of the day...I had filled 4 grocery bags from all the cleaning. Trash day is tomorrow, so right now they are all in the garbage bin at the end of the driveway.
