    Yesterday I worked for several hours on coupons - sorting, filing and purging. I flung at least 100 pieces of paper. Today, I worked another hour or so and finished up the coupons (at least until tomorrow when the circulars come in the paper) with a total of at least another 50 flung. While doing laundry today, I flung a pair of socks with too many holes to repair. That brings me up to a total of 152 items flung.

    Okay, flung a box that I had been saving, just in case I had to return the product. Flung an extender and half a cable tie I found in the pasture. So up to five for the day!

    I'm going to dig through my underwear drawer one more time and see if I can find 5 flings. I might also peek into DH's underwear drawer and see if I can toss anything with holes.

    I got rid of some neck ties, but think I will omit counting them, because I had to allow my family to bring them over to see if we could use any.

    I also got rid of all the old gum (last CHRISTMAS) and gave away some gum from this Christmas we don't like. I also went through my candy stash and gave away lots of it in DS's birthday treat bags. I am counting all candy gone as one item.

    I just looked at my accounting for last month. I got rid of or otherwise dealt with 113 books and misc. pieces in the data base last month. I have to do a LOT better than that if I'm going to meet this year's goal! Of course, I had all those checks too, and I don't have anything like that now.

    Today I've prepped books to go to the dump (3 so far) and wholesale to the bookstore (4 so far) and books to sell AT the bookstore (9 so far). The dump books I'll count today, the wholesale I'll count when I actually get paid, the others also if/when I get paid or when I pull them as unsold and take them to the dump.

    I wish this wasn't such a LONG process. I have added more books to box 13, but again, I don't count those until I deliver them and get paid, but it will be approx 50-60 books.

    I have books/records prepped to go to the antique store and have 4 of the records quoted out to someone and 1 other hardcover.

    So you can't SEE what I'm doing yet, but I AM doing it. This is SOooo discouraging, I have several 1,000 books to go through and it just takes time and time and more time....

    Went through underwear drawer as promised. 6 uncomfortable undies in the trash, plus a couple pieces of junk mail. 8 for yesterday!

    Was looking for hair spray this morning, flung 2 cans that my mom gave me that she didn't like. LOL, I didn't like it either! Also 1 catalog in the recycling bin, I have lots more of those to go through.

    I think I'm going to make a signature to keep track of my challenges.
