    ~I've become more conscious of what comes in and how to use it up this year also. But I want to be even better at it next year so I'm going to track what comes into the house too and be sure an equal amount of things leave the house to keep a balance. You've really inspired me this year Judi! And I think by participating in 2011, I can keep my head above the clutter in our tiny house while we wait to upgrade to more space.

    So, I had extra time to declutter today on top of my Fall Fling allotment. I got to spend 20 minutes in the kids' toybox while Faira sat in her baby seat watching the toy trains go around.
    I trashed 26 things and that filled a bag. Then I put 15 items in a bag for Goodwill. I also reused 5 shipping envelopes to send out DH's sold video games.~

    ~5 more shipping envelopes, 2 sweaters, a smock and a cloth napkin out this morning. Less than 350 items to go to meet my goal for the year. It's time to attack the papers and power fling!~

    I lost track about mid-year, but I am up for a 2011 challenge, so I'm setting one up, if anyone is interested in joining.

    I stop counting a while back also but I'm still trying. I'm not saying that I can see a big dent but,I haven't seen the piles get bigger. I'm back in for 2011. Now to keep better count!

    I don't know if this is my last post of the year or not. The way things have been around here it may be (crazy)! I am definitely joining in for 2011. This is what I can remember flinging since my last post:
    1 Mascara tube
    10 baby items given to a friend
    1 small face cream (have 2 on hand)
    1 more partial lipstick used up (on to the next partial) - it is amazing how much lipstick is still in the tube when you start digging out the 'end'
    1 very large jar of face cream
    around 20 cut up inserts and expired coupons
    around 30 items used for Christmas: boxes, bags, bows, tape, wrapping paper and gift tags
    9 make-up, B&BW lotions and sprays for a Christmas gift basket for a friend's daughter
    8 canned items from my pantry to the food pantry

    As of today, that is it. I believe that is 81 more 'things' flung. Don't know if I'll make my second goal, but this has been real good for me in more ways than one.

    ~Well I cleaned out all of my 2010 financial paperwork. I usually just pull out whatever I need for tax filing and throw all the rest in a bag to "file". Not this year! I spent an hour throwing out unneeded receipts, privacy notices, plan update letters, etc. I stopped counting after 300 because I knew I'd make my 2010 Fling goal. I weeded 4 boxes of papers down to one! ~

    I am going to cheat and start counting today in my 2011 fling. I find I keep waiting on stuff, because I want it to count towards 2011. How stupid is that? So, no more waiting (or is it procrastination in sheep's clothing?) and today will be a productive pre-new-year day!
