Take the Challenge SPRING FLING 2010

The other night I couldnt sleep...I was thinking about all of the stuff in my house.  So, I decided to get rid of some things, not just "some" things, 100 things.  In the morning I called my sister and told her about my plan...so we decided to make it a challenge for anyone who wants to participate.
Before Spring Cleaning, this year, comes SPRING FLINGING!!

The challenge:

FLING 100 ITEMS BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING, MARCH 21ST

 
Definition of "FLING":

ebay, re-gift, donate, craigslist, give away, freecycle, recycle, trash...just about anything you can think of, but on March 21st, 2010 100 items must be GONE.

 
If you're up for the challenge

1.Leave a comment on this post, and let us know you are participating

2. Create a list on your sidebar and start tracking as you fling

3.Feel free to post a button as well to let your readers know what you're up to!!

Enjoy, and happy flinging!

I love this idea! I too have been thinking about all the stuff I have lying around that I don't use anymore. I've been thinking about having a free garage sale for my ward & friends where I set aside a day & time where people can come and just take whatever they want!

Oh I am sooooo in! I was just saying to my husband last night that we have way too much junk in our house! It's a good size house, but all the "stuff" makes it feel smaller! This is going to feel liberating! thanks for the challenge!

I also found a link to this from another blog-- Playful Professional's, if you know her.

Anywho, I think this is great, and I'm gonna try it!

At first I was afraid to sign up, because what if I don't get to 100!! haha..then I realized that doesn't matter, at least I'll be getting rid of some stuff!

carol said...

I made a hard copy of your logo to pass out and signed up my whole quilt group today!

Tyler and Karisa said...

This sounds like an awesome idea! I saw the challenge on another random blog and totally want to jump in! Hope you don't mind a stranger! :) I may try to do double your challenge just to really make it good! Ha ha! I've been wanting to 'fling' things so much and now I have a specific 'goal'! This is great!

Tyler and Karisa said...

I'm still flinging despite it being past the 'date'... I have a bigger goal in mind and have been getting rid of some BIG things. Ha ha! So, I think my deadline will be before my little baby comes... or whenever I reach 200 things. (It's a lot, but I'm going to do it!)
