Spring Fling Day 30: First Aid Supplies

Spring Fling Day 30: First Aid Supplies

Go through your medicine cabinet or drawer as well as any first aid kits you may have. Fling any medications like first aid ointment that have expired and check the conditions of bandages and other items. There is nothing worse needing a band-aid and it has lost all of its sticky-ness. Make a note on your shopping list of any supplies you need to replace.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many first aid supplies you were able to fling today.

Spring Fling Day 29: Hair Products

Spring Fling Day 29: Hair Products

Look in your shower, on your bathroom counter and under your bathroom sink and go ahead and throw out those hair products (including shampoo and conditioner) that you are never going to finish using. Go ahead and admit that you are never going to use that spiking gel or strange smelling shampoo again! Dump it down the sink and then recycle the bottles

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many hair products you were able to fling today.

Spring Fling Day 28: Plastic Containers

Spring Fling Day 28: Plastic Containers

Pull out all of those Tupperware containers and old butter tubs. If they don’t have lids (or are missing the bottoms), they definitely should be flung. Decide how many you actually need and will reasonably use, keep the nicest ones and recycle the rest.


Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many plastic containers you were able to fling today.

Welcome to the Spring Fling. Join us every day in April to start flinging the clutter from your life!

Spring Fling Day 26: Picture Frames

Spring Fling Day 26: Picture Frames

Today I want you to go through that stack of empty picture frames in the attic, top of the closet or under the bed. Ask yourself why you are keeping these frames instead of using them. So either get a picture and set out that frame or put the ones you don’t like in your donation bag. Don’t let them take up space in your house - just in case!

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many picture frames you were able to fling today.

Spring Fling Day 25: Travel Toiletries

Spring Fling Day 25: Travel Toiletries

We all do it - come home from vacation with all the little bottles of hotel toiletries we can get our hands on. More often than not, these bottles just end up collecting dust under the sink. Today round up all the travel size toiletries and fling the ones you’ll never use. Many women’s shelters and halfway houses would love to have your extras.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many toiletries you were able to fling today.

Spring Fling Day 24: T-Shirts

Sort through your t-shirt collection.  We seem to get a new t-Shirt for every event we participate in and every new place we go. Pair down to the ones that are in good shape and you truly care about. Let the others go. Extra special shirts could be made into a quilt or you can take a picture or video and keep that instead. Check out this cool video of what one man did with his collection of 312 t-shirts before donating them (6 garbage bags FULL!).  http://youtu.be/6l4eTwwKygg
