    Default Mini-Purge

    Okay, it's that time again. Grab yourself a grocery bag or small trash bag, walk through the house and pick up the trash! Papers, old mail, broken toys, clear out the junk drawer, nightstand drawers, cabinets, etc.

    I guarantee you can fill that bag, and your total can go to your Fling 2010 in 2010 Challenge total!

    Who's with me?

    So far, I've emptied my nightstand drawer. We have the house on the market, and I have been guilty of doing the arm swipe to clear off a surface and shove it all in a drawer when I know someone is coming to look at the house, so my drawers are a hot spot, right now!

    I also went through the mail for the week. I had a busy week, so the mail didn't get sorted every day.

    Anyone else?

    Does paying bills count as purging? LOL Just got caught up on my bills. Seriously though - I've picked up the lv rm and tossed a few things. Same with old magazines into recycling, filled one more bag with clothes for donation and its already loaded in the truck!

    I need to shred old bill statements - so easy to do but I just can't sit down to start.

    Yesterday I cleared out a bunch of old hand-me-down pots/pans/lids that I never use and donated them to the hospice thrift store.

    I'll work on it tomorrow. Purging is easier when DH is not home.
