    Woohoo! One of the local bookstores said he'd take a box o' books for free! That ups my available OUT books to 9 boxes (6 boxes remaining on 30 box order, 1 box to a friend's library, 1 box to this library, and 1 box to another bookstore as a "freebie." Of course I need orders/commitments for around 509, but it's certainly better than 0!

    For those of you who don't know, the reason my fling total is so high is that I'm getting rid of books from my previous bookstore. The 9 boxes will be roughly 450-540 books out, and no, it won't make an appreciable difference, unfortunately.

    I'm in on this challenge but I have no idea how I'm going to toss 2011 items! Laugh. I'm sure I will do fine. I need to get a bit more organized, I've fallen off the organized wagon when I started working part time this year. Does it have to be items only? Could it be weight or bad habits too?

    We allowed pounds/kilos/?? in last year's challenge, so no reason why they shouldn't count here. If you REALLY fling your bad habit, you can give yourself the appropriate number of fling points (fling points = value of bad habit) at the end of the year.

    I'm definitely in on this one. I will start tomorrow in the kitchen while I'm making Friendship Bread. I'm sure there are things out there I no longer need or want. I'm new here and this is my first try at flinging, but it sounds like a plan to me. Thanks for getting me started.

    Even though this was yesterday, I'll start it tonight. I flung 3 pairs of broken earrings when I cleaned out my jewelry box and two compacts of old eyeshadow.

    Oh I am so in on this one. I just moved into a new house, and the moving truck came yesterday, so believe me when I say, I AM READY!

    I've also started this today. Working on the kitchen and the cabinets. I know we have food there from years ago that shouldn't be there anymore. I'm taking photos too. I am not counting everything I'm tossing... I'll count a full garbage bag as one with this. But it feels good to be motivated to get organized and toss some of this that is just taking up space. My Bose ipod dock is helping me stay motivated. Thanks mom for the wonderful xmas gift! It's lovely! ; )

    Fling #1

    Kitchen cabinets. Food organized better, old food tossed.

    Counting this as one fling. 1 trash bag of old food. I mean food that expired 2008, 2009.


    Empty cabinet. You should have seen this cabinet before I emptied it. OMG. It was a mess... the mess ended up on the table...



    Um, that's a lot of chocolate for baking!


    Yep, that whole top shelf is pretty much baking/candy making items.


    Next cabinet to go through...



    and done...


    I had one more smaller cabinet but it was organized so I didn't bother. It's mostly the spice/rice/boxed items.

    One trash can full of flings...

    Bah! I sold 56 things at the antique store last month, and I can't find the old thread. I don't know what I've counted, or not. I'm pretty sure I quit counting in 11/2010, because I'd gotten to 150+ over and figured that meant I'd been there, done that, enough already...but I can't find the thread, so I guess I can't count the 56 pieces.

    On the other hand, I tossed 41 insert pages and gave a bag of bags (12, I counted) to the antique store, but I also bought 3 metal milk crates, so....

    41+12 -3 = 50

    items out today!

    Count me in....this one is going to be a real challenge for me, because I'm not good at throwing or giving stuff away. But in the interest of not being selected to appear on that Hoarders TV show, I'M IN!!!!

    ~OK, I went through my closet again today with the urge to purge. If I didn't love it it got purged. 13 items from my side. I also pulled out a couple of DH's Hawaiian shirts I hate along with a dinner jacket and put them in a bag too. I also tossed 24 hangers, 2 hairbrushes, a hairband and barrette. 45 total for day 1!!~
