    I have been updating my siggy rather than here, as it seemed like I was the only one posting. I'll keep it that way for some time.

    ~We don't mind your posting if it keeps you motivated Judi!
    I don't have as much free time as I'd like to post updates. I'd rather spend the time I have reading and responding to the 'fun' threads.

    I rocked it this week and filled a large trash bag with junk and two small bags with books and toys. I'm counting it all as 100 out.
    DH bought a couple of toys for the kids this week and they brought home workshop crafts today. I also ordered some things that are on their way. 17 in.~

    After two days in a row of tossing >100 things, today feels like a failure, only 3. Of course, there are probably more I don't know about. We haven't looked in the basement except really briefly to make sure there wasn't any flooding the pump couldn't keep up with. DH decided that we needed to do a major basement cleanup, and as it's a crawlspace rather than a real basement, and I'm < 5' and he's >6', that means it's a job I get to do. Oh joy!

    Back from camping and the storm is over. Have to call my friends this morning and see if they need any help since their home was hit by flash flood. If not, I am flinging today...wish me luck!

    PS partly because of this challenge, I got 10 bricks to make stepping stones from today and put them in the ground today too,so I didn't have to count them!

    Got help from a neighbor, we cleaned under the bed, the wall, etc. I'm not sure how much to count all the dust bunnies or other stuff that wound up in the trash, I'll update my siggy tonight...gotta get ready for work now!

    Judy, as you know, I really enjoy your postings and want you to keep going with them. They keep me motivated and interested in the flinging I need to do. If it were me, I would count every dust bunny and every piece of trash, no matter how minute, as an individual item flung. After all, you aren't keeping them and frankly some of the dust bunnies around here are so large they look like the real thing. Now for my paltry little flinging update:

    took 20 items to the Thrift Store

    donated 25 items to the food pantry

    donated 30+ items to a back-to-school drive (that was a really needed purge - I love paper, pens,etc. and just can't hardly resist them when they go on clearance!)

    flung an old toothbrush

    That is a total of 76 added to my total.

    This past week, not only did I get help and we tackled the horrendous job of moving the mattress/headboard and cleaning everything then putting it back. (Thursday)

    Friday, I went to the storage and moved 21 bookcases, 6 craft booth panels, dismantled a bin rack and loaded all but one of the spinner bases/cages into the car. The person came who was taking my old counter, 9 drawers, a bookcase, a book, and 2 crocks.

    Saturday, someone came to get the remaining 15 bookcases, including the steel one, which hasn't moved from the back of this storage unit since it was put there 7 years ago!

    You can see I've been flinging things right, left and sidewise. Today was a dump day and I took a light fixture and some other odds & ends to the dump.

    Tomorrow? Tomorrow is a community sale where I regularly get a lot of lovely junk. My total is almost certainly going to be negative!
