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

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.

Spring Fling Day 18: Office Supplies

Spring Fling Day 18: Office Supplies

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.

 

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

Spring Fling Day 14: Contacts

Spring Fling Day 14: Contacts

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

Today I want you to browse through your contact list on your computer/phone or your paper address book. Go through and delete people that you no longer are in contact with. There’s no need to slog through 100 names and addresses when you no longer need 20 of those names.  If you use a paper address book and have a lot of changes to make, consider getting a new one and starting over fresh.

There's An App for That: Evernote

There's An App for That: Evernote

Evernote has become one of my favorite apps. I use it to store all kinds of information that I will want to retrieve later, things such as a great recipe from a friend, screenshots of other websites I am inspired by as I revamp my own website, and quotes that I want to remember. Basically Evernote is now my go-to spot to save anything I am going to need later.

 

Paper Purge: Toss Your Phone Books

Paper Purge: Toss Your Phone Books

Be honest how often do you use the traditional phone book and yet you keep the 6 that seem to show up on your doorstep every year. Most people are more likely to pull out their smart phone to look up a phone number than the yellow pages.
