Spring Fling Day 24: T-Shirts

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

 

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

Spring Fling Day 23: Serving Dishes

Spring Fling Day 23: Serving Dishes

One of the things we seem to accumulate a lot of are serving dishes. Today look at all of your serving dishes and think about which ones you actually use. When Thanksgiving comes around, will you honestly need 20 bowls or platters? What about that salad bowl with a big chip on the rim? Try to pare down and simplify. Keep only the ones you actually need and use.

 

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

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

Staples, paper clips and notepads, oh my! Today go through any office supplies you might have in your house or your office. Do you have more paper clips that one human could ever use?

Spring Fling Day 17 - Regrets

Spring Fling Day 17 - Regrets

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

 

Today I want you to take a page from Elsa of ‘Frozen’ and let it go! Let go of regrets for tasks you haven’t completed. Let go of regrets for not accomplishing something you’ve wanted to do. Let go of regrets that lead to negative self talk (like ‘I’m not worth it’ or ‘I’m so stupid, Why did I do that?’).  I want you to let those thoughts go and concentrate on what’s great in your life and all the possibilities of the future. Don’t live in the past.

 

Now go fling those regrets!!
