spanish expressions Tirar la Casa por la Ventana
This is a fun one! “Tirar la case por la ventana” literally means to throw the house out the window, which is quite clever when you consider the meaning. This expression means to spare no expenses or to pull out all the stops – more or less throwing the house out the figurative window! So if you ever feel like going all out for a party you’re planning, or a work project, all you have to say is “¿ Por qué no tirar la casa por la ventana?”

  • I’m so glad you posted this! My mom used to tell us about how she was doing poorly in high school spanish and there was this phrase she translated to “throw the house out the window.” I always wondered what the heck she was talking about…she knew it was an idiom, but she could never remember what it really meant. THANK YOU! 🙂
