All good things must come to an end. Sadly, the Memorial Day weekend is almost over. Just a few more hours of holiday to go. I have to give myself a small pat on the back today for doing a little Memorial Day cleaning and closet triage. Tomorrow, I’ll be giving away old items to some charities and Goodwill. A few choice fashion tidbits will go on eBay to help pay bills or save for a vacation. Did any of you doing any reorganizing or “decluttering” over the weekend? Please tell me I am not alone in my shambolical housecleaning or my need to keep favorite clothing items draped on a chair for easy access rather than hanging in the closet. I mean, it’s so much easier to just go to the chair, and pick up an outfit, rather than open the closet and conduct a full scale search.
Obviously, I only took “baby steps.” A couple months ago, OfficeMax was kind enough to give me a copy of Peter Walsh’s ( Peter is a cleaning superstar who has been on TLC’s Clean Sweep and Oprah. ) book and DVD called “It’s All Too Much.” Ironically, it was all too much for me at the time, and I never got around to doing a proper blog giveaway on it. You know, it’s that work thing The book was properly saved in the special The Recessionista collection, a unique dust gathering place on the lower shelf of my coffee table. In my fit of cleaning and new found vacation organization fervor, I have “liberated” the book from my own clutter. So one lucky reader will win the book and one lucky reader will win the DVD. It’s a 2Fer! ( 2 for 1). Get ready to for tips, techniques and encouragement from expert Peter Walsh that will help you declutter every room of your home once and for all. I mean why should Oprah get all the cleaning/decluttering help? Some of us non-celebrities need a cleaning intervention, right?
