You all are doing great :clap:. I have never been motivated more for a challenge, madhen, so thank you for posting.
I told Dave about this challenge, and he's totally on board for doing a complete overhaul this weekend. He wants to set the goal at 10 trash bags of stuff (to either toss or donate). I am thrilled that he is motivated. I should have a really good total come Monday morning. Until then...I continue to fling!
Ok now, I am using brown paper grocery bags of junk mail for a weed barrier on a path I am making. The junk mail goes under the newspaper that goes under the cardboard that goes under the bark on the path.
Do I get to count the junk mail as flung even though technically it is still here?
Got rid of 7 books today, but could only count 6, because I brought in a pair of rubber fishing boots for grandson to wear in the chicken coop. They are so tiny and cute. I got them from FreeCycle though, so no cost.
DH is now pulling Christmas boxes from the rental spaces - went through 6 today. Threw out 22 ornaments, 4 to gift to a friend and chose 85 items for the yard sale. Also have 27 books and 57 other items for yard sale. Total today so far - 195, plus my starting 1==196. Nothing from the yard sale is coming home, so once it is boxed, it is gone!!
