Went around the house and threw away things I could live without. Filled a lawn/leaf bag, so I'm giving myself a credit for 10 flings. Subtract the sewing machine, and my total for the day is nine. :)

I have not flung much recently, today no exception. Only a t-shirt and a stack of old papers. That's it.

I went through my sewing room again this morning and flung some stuff...but not very much. Mostly organized it so I could actually get at the cutting board and sewing machine...which are now covered with quilt tops and blocks. :)

I joined this challenge but not officially. I am positive I have flung 2009 things since we moved. I sold 500 things in my garage sale alone.

Anyway I am going to try to fling 2009 more things this year. I want a simpler life. Not so much crap!!

I wonder how well I can do if I jump in now, in August.... hmmmm.... I bet I can come pretty close to 2009.

My goal was 100 for the month of August, but that only took me one afternoon in the craft closet, so 100 was wayyyyy tooooo easy -

I'm jumping in - I'm going for 2009 in 5 months.

bumplett, I think Debbie-cat and TSOO hit the 2009 mark in about 60 days, so you should have no problems. Of course, it might be that they just had a real clutter problem.... :)

Yes, I had a real clutter problem! Well, technically not me but my DH! :laugh:

DH is off to get his new glasses. I made sure he took the old pair and the pair of lenses we had to donate to the Lion's Club with him. (Our eye doctor is involved with their glasses efforts.)

Two more added!

ok, I'm just curious how specific you guys are being with details.... if I toss (recycle, donate, whatever) 12 black halloween roses, does that count as 12 or just as 1 since they all are the same thing, and sorta "go together"

same with stationary, would a set of 6 cards/envelopes be 1 items as a whole, or 6, or 12

I do both. I count each book, since I have so many. But the juice glasses I bought and sold this weekend I counted as one functional item, so I added and then subtracted one.

I'm counting each book because I literally have 1,000s to get rid of and I need to be aware of how many I've flung! (It's also the reason I'm going to try and fling 2009 (x 2) this year!

I don't think there are any hard and fast rules. I would have probably counted each rose, but counted the stationery set as one item.
