If anyone can explain to me how it’s November on Wednesday I am all ears! How did that happen? I feel like November is a good time for a declutter. With Christmas almost here it’s time to rid our house of some stuff. And November has 30 days, which is perfect for a 30 day get chucked challenge. In 30 days I’ll get rid of 465 things!
How does the 30 day get chucked challenge work?
The 30 day get chucked challenge is simple! It really requires almost no planning. On the first day of the challenge you throw out one possession. Then two possessions on the second day, three things on the third day, you get the drift. Eventually you’ll be free of 465 things.
Let’s get started
That’s the extent of my planning! The first week or so should be fairly simple. It does get tougher as the challenge goes along. If you do join in, you will be surprised about where junk is lurking. Bathroom cabinets hold out of date items, wardrobes have clothes that no longer fit and kids have toys that are broken.
465 possessions sounds like a lot but don’t be intimidated by that number. Day one, one possession, start there and see how it does! If you want tips for a 30 day get chucked challenge, read this post. A quote I love when decluttering is ‘Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful’. It’s a good reminder when I am feeing indecisive!
If you discover a disaster zone of your house (say the third draw with the odd chopsticks) and you’re on a roll, you can of course kept going. Let’s say you find 15 items to throw out on day 11, simply add those items to the next day’s target.

This is not the blog for advice on how to be an organised house wife! I do however promise to let you know where I find my items to throw out and share that with you. Follow Life on Wallace on Facebook and I’ll thrill you with where the junk hides in my house.
Tell me you’re in? It’s more fun decluttering with a buddy for support!
