Spring Fling Day 27: Spices

Spring Fling Day 27: Spices

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

 

Look through your spices and get rid of any bottles that are expired or you bought for a special recipe and will never use again. Then check out your condiments in the cupboard and the fridge. Again fling items that are expired or you just won’t use again.

 

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

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

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.

Spring Fling Day 22: Pet Supplies

Spring Fling Day 22: Pet Supplies

Today let’s fling Fido and Fluffy’s stuff.  It’s time to fling those too small collars and bowls, treats that the cat just will not eat and the frayed leashes. If you have supplies from a long gone pet, like an aquarium or a hamster habitat, today is the day to let those go.

 

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

Spring Fling Day 21: Towels & Washcloths

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

 

Go through your linen closet and purge old, frayed towels and washcloths. Decide how many is a reasonable amount to have, perhaps 2 per family member and a few for guests. Don’t forget the beach towels too! Remember that local animal shelters would love to have your old towels.

 

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