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.

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

 

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? Is the junk drawer overflowing with pens, half of which don’t work? Purge what you truly don’t need or won’t use in the foreseeable future.  Consider donating your overflow to local schools or churches or other nonprofits.
