Super Fling Boogie...in the dining room

The Super Fling Boogie continues!  And I continue to feel lighter with every 15 minute decluttering session.  So why, oh why, can't I be consistent about it?!  Oh well, progress not perfection, right? :)

This week's Flylady zone is the Front Porch/Entrance/Dining Room.

I set my timer for 15 minutes and started on our sideboard/china cabinet.  The 'china' part only needed straightening up.  Though to my credit I did manage to part with some cups and glasses that we never use.  I then attacked the 'worst' drawer - which is the one that contains candle holders...

I could have sworn I sorted this drawer out during the last Zone Super Fling Boogie?! ;D
Now - granted -  you may think that that's an awful lot of candle holders to have...  But, hey, remember that I live in Denmark!  So we light candles morning, afternoon and night... :D

Anyway, the timer was still ticking (8 minutes left) and I got stuck in.  Anything I hadn't used since last year or didn't love went straight into a giveaway box.  Lots of half-burnt candle bits went in the rubbish.  I gave the drawer a quick hoover and put everything back in.  The things I wasn't sure about - not too many of those this time round - were put at the back of the drawer, along with a mental note to fling them next time round.

Still too much stuff...but getting there! :)
I was finished before the timer went off.  So I did the part which, for me, is always a bit of a stumbling block...  I actually took the giveaway box right out to the car.  Hooray!  And two hours later, it was out of my car (and out of my hair) and had found a new home at DD9's After School Club (who always find a use for our 'junk').  Hooray again! ;D

The giveaway box
I ♥ decluttering!

Hope you have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend! :)

Just read your artlicle - good for you! I absolutely love FlyLady!! We live in a Northern climate in the United States and when I was getting rid of my really used candles, my son decided to pour the liquid wax over lint from dryer and has fabulous fire starters for the upcoming winter season! I also fling gently used sheets, towels and clothes, as well as waffle makers, pans, pots and glassware to our weekly giveaway at our church. The people who have lost their homes due to unemployment or a fire (etc) can come over a pick
up what household items they need.
