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 19 - Recipes

Spring Fling Day 19 - Recipes

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

 

We all do it - ripping yummy looking recipes out of magazines and newspapers. Then those slips of papers languish in a folder, file or cupboard forever, never to be used again. So this fling is to go through your collection of torn-out recipes and, being brutally honest with yourself, toss the recipes that you’ve never made, you are never going to make and if you did, you’d go online to find the recipe.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many unneeded recipes 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.

Spring Fling Day 1 - Coats & Jackets

Spring Fling Day 1 - Coats & Jackets

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

 

Let’s start flinging with your coats and jackets. Go through your closets and fling the coats that have been outgrown, are getting ratty or you just plain don’t wear anymore. And let’s face it, as cold has it has been this winter, if you have jackets you haven’t worn, you probably aren’t going to. If you have speciality coats like ski jackets that you wear infrequently, don’t let them take up vital real estate in your hall closet. Move them to an extra room or box them up and put them in the attic.

 

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

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.
