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

Fall Fling Day 4: Receipts

Go through your wallet/purse, junk drawer or dresser top and gather all of your receipts. Take a look at them and then toss any that aren’t needed for budgeting purposes, business expenses or your taxes. This should be about 99% of the receipts you’ve held on to. Shred or toss them. Bonus points if you file the ones you need to keep.

Take a look at the photos on your phone and delete the bad pictures that are clogging up the memory on your phone.  Then fling those pictures off of your phone and onto your computer or at the very least into the cloud (iCloud, Dropbox) Not sure how to do this? Google your kind of phone and “download photos”. This should give you step by step instructions.

Fall is right around the corner. Before we know it, we’ll all be snuggled down in our homes, keeping warm and enjoying the holidays.  So now is the perfect time to get rid of clutter and start fresh. 

 

Join me for the entire month of October for a Fall Fling. Every day we will be sorting, discarding and flinging items and ideas from a wide variety of areas of our home and lives.  You can pick and choose which flings you would like do. You can do them every day or do them at your own pace. It’s all up to you!

OK, I’ll admit it. Meal planning is not one of my strong points in the kitchen. In fact, it is probably one of my biggest headaches. I don’t mind grocery shopping, putting away the groceries or cooking but I can stand in front of a full fridge or pantry and not think of a single thing to make. It’s like my brain just freezes up. Can anyone else relate?

So what are some ways that others deal with this necessary daily task? Here are a few that come to mind.
