    100 things flung! I sold a box of 100 baby clothes on eBay and the sale closed today. I boxed them up and am ready to mail them out on Tuesday when the PO opens up again.

    ~Excellent start to the year ladies!
    I decided to get to last year's financial records sooner rather than later(and I usually put it off until April).
    I tossed a bag's worth of unneeded receipts, bills and correspondence. I'm ready for tax time earlier than I've ever been!
    Counting as 25!~

    Wow...I had a great flinging weekend! Added another 100 items (think it was around 103, but am rounding off) to my total. DD and I just spontaneously started going through her closet and dresser and found 100 items of clothing she has outgrown. Put them in a large trash bag and dropped them at my sister-in-laws for my nieces after dinner! Whoo-hoo!!!

    Good thing I had such a productive weekend, because weekdays are tricky with work. So, I'll have to make up for it on the weekends!

    Default Fling 2012 things in 2012!

    edited to add: i didn't realize this had already been started....now i have somewhere to post.

    i so want to do this in 2012. does anyone else want to join me?

    i started flinging last year and i got to about 300....and then i lost interest. but i want to de-clutter like there is no tomorrow this year! i'm tired of having so much stuff everywhere and not being able to find things because of all the piles and stuff!

    track with me!

    be as detailed as you want (ie. list everything you're flinging) or as vague as you want (ie. just list numbers).

    also, you can have whatever rules you need to have to make it work for you (ie. will each piece of paper you fling count as 1 item? or will 1 bag of papers count as 1? will big things like furniture count for more? if you have to make dificult choices about what to fling will they count for more?)

    flinging can include items that you've thrown out, donated, or given away.

    check in often for motivation and to motivate others!

    we started yesterday as we took the christmas tree down and tidied up.

    we took our old xmas tree to value village along with 2 boxes of clothes that don't fit ds anymore (20 items), 3 xmas tree decorations that i don't like, and ds's old wagon and stroller. i also threw out 3 broken decoration s ().

    that makes 29 things we've flung! 1983 things left to fling!

    As we cleaned out her closet and dresser yesterday, I explained the fling to DD. She loved it and said she wants to do some flinging, too! I said, "Absolutely, my dear!" and can't wait because her room gives me a nervous tic!

    Today I "flung" one of the kitchen drawers when I put away the dish towels. 15 things gone to trash since they were not worth passing them on to someone else.

    Hopefully more tonight
