What is Throw It Thursday?
If you’re wondering what this is all about here is a little background about why it started and maybe motivate you to join me.
Throw it Thursday is a simple concept – once a week I aim to organise or declutter a space in our home. No matter how big or small as long as I declutter and organise one area I consider it a success. Some weeks it’s one drawer, others it’s a cupboard, and some weeks it’s a whole room. I make it work around my schedule and what will work each week, If it takes me a few weeks to get through a room then thats ok.
Too busy on Thursdays?
Throw it Thursday isn’t about getting your whole house in order in a few weeks, it’s more about creating a habit of regular decluttering and cleaning out to help you maintain and reach new levels of organisation. If Thursday isn’t a good day for you how about
- Move it out Monday
- Toss it Tuesday
- Write it off Wednesday
- Forgo it Friday
- Sell it Saturday
- Shed it Sunday.
Are you ready to create a new habit?
“Less stuff means less to organise” That seems obvious right? Have a think now about a space in your home that constantly gets out of control? How much “stuff” is in that space? Would decluttering that area make it easier to manage? Did you know that decluttering reduces your housework by 40%? If that’s not a good enough reason to declutter than I don’t know what it.
Less is More
We’ve all heard the saying Less is More, I started to realise that the less stuff we had to “organise” the more time I had for life and the things I wanted to be doing. I have dreams of being a minimalist, but I know that’s probably not a realistic goal for me. I’ve come to the happy medium that I want to live with our excess.
If you’ve ever said to yourself “one day I’ll get organised or when I have the time I’ll get the house in order why not take advantage of the time you do have and join me each week for Throw it Thursday.
