Fling 2012 Things in 2012 Challenge!
~I love this challenge!
It's amazing how much stuff comes into our homes over the course of a year. I kept track last year and I was shocked at how much came in(and I know I forgot to track some stuff!) Remembering to fling regularly will keep us from getting buried and owned by our stuff.
So, can you part with 2012 items this year?
That's 167-168 items a month.
38 items a week.
5-6 items a day.
3 in the morning and 3 at night.
Break it down the way it works for you. I like to do big power sessions of 50-100 items at a time, once or twice a week. I will also be counting the items that come into our home this year.
We can do this!~
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! :cheer4:
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 (:down:).
that makes 29 things we've flung! 1983 things left to fling!
