Unclutterer - Thing a Day Challenge

Posted by Junk King on Jul 20, 2010, 4:17:56 PM

One of our favorite forums, Unclutterer, has started a very interesting thread recently. The 'Thing a Day Challenge' encourages participants to unclutter their lives by getting rid of a piece of junk every day.

From unclutterer.com:
"The challenge is about getting rid of one object a day, for … a month? A year? It’s up to you how long you want your challenge to last. Whether you give away, trash or donate the object is immaterial, but it must be gone from your life and space. Putting it into storage doesn’t count; though you are allowed to, say, collect the things in a box to donate them at the end of the month."

The Junk King team is fully behind this sort of challenge. Getting rid of junk, one piece at a time, can really end up uncluttering your life. If you start out with this sort of challenge you'll begin to look at your home in a new light. Instead of simply seeing objects around the house, you'll probably start to put things into two categories: junk and not junk. This kind of challenge will make you think about what is important in your house, and what is simply lying around gathering dust.

What's really great about the challenge is the social aspect. The Unclutterer forum has recieved a lot of interest so far, and people are diving into the challenge. Not only are individuals able to log their junk removal progress on the forum, but they also can view the types of junk other people are getting rid of. If one person throws out an old lamp, it might 'light a bulb' in another person's head about a lamp they also need to get rid of. This is the type 'social networking' that can allow for a collaborative junk removal effort.

Although 'a thing a day' is a great way to gradually get rid of our junk, some people like to do things in a 'scorched earth' sort of way. Meaning, you may want to spend one single weekend going through your home, deciding everything that is junk, and hauling it all out in one massive junk removal trip. For these type of individuals, Junk King can provide an efficient and affordable service by hauling the junk out of your home. Some heavier items can often make it difficult to take the job on by yourself. Junk King also has an environmentally friendly junk recycling policy to make sure your clutter stays out of landfills.
