In an effort to start using things I have purchased I started a new stash "diet plan." Every week I am picking five (consumable) items out of my stash that I have to use within that week or they have to be purged. It really motivates me to find ways to use items that have been sitting around for a while. And if I cant find a way to use them when I am really trying then I probably wouldn't use them anyway. Anyways, its working really well and I was wondering if anybody wanted to join me? I thought every week we could check in post a picture of our five items (or however many you want to choose!) for the week and then write a little about how we did the week before and share the layouts we made!
thats a great idea!!!!
Love this idea!!!
this is an awesome idea! :)
Yay! So glad you guys are liking the idea!
These are my five items for the week!
love this idea!
I love this idea. Now, which items should I start with?? Hmmmmm
Such a great idea, my stash needs a diet. (said as I slyly eye next months add-ons.) Maybe I need a 12 step program.
That's a great idea! Once I get all unpacked I may have to do that too!! :)
This is a completely awesome and inspiring idea!
such a good idea! I'm gonna have to try that.
What a great idea!! I think I will try this too! Thanks for the idea! I need to pick my items now! LOL
i love this idea - going to pick my five things soon!
Oh, I'd love to play along! My hubby is assembling my new Raskog cart as we speak and I shall be organizing with a cup of coffee in the morning. I'll definitely get 5 things pulled and do the same. Are you planning on setting a specific day to check in, or just whenever we finish through the week?
Hmmm, not sure! A planned day would be more organized, but people will probably start on different days. What does everyone else think? Planned day or on different days whenever your week is up?
Yeah, I think since it's pretty relaxed, people should be on their own timeline, as long as it's within a week!
I did mine yesterday though! These are the few odds and ends I pulled out while organizing and I ended up using all 6 on my page! Thanks for the push!
And here's my page.
Awesome page! I havent even gotten started yet, haha!
lol! Once I get organized and pull things out, the ideas just flow. Thanks for the push!
Awesome page! I started to get my stuff out and I was trying for some Christmas-y themed things because I am trying to finish the last part of 2005 (last 2 weeks or so of December) before I move on with my August kits. One of the things I pulled out was an old MM Charmed Frame. I used it! YAY!! I still feel like something is missing around that frame, but I can't figure out what to put there! LOL
I am gonna give this a go too! thanks for the motivation :-)
