Our first blog giveaway!

Inspired by my best friend’s blog, Budget Bookworm, I have decided to do my very own giveaway!

But first, shameless plug for her blog ~ please, please go check out www.budgetbookworm.com.  My BFF, Amanda, started this blog as a way to show you how NOT to break the bank in order to read the things that you love.  She focuses on e-books (Kindle, anyone?  Yes please!), paperbacks, textbooks, children’s books…you name it.  And this week, in honor of Children’s Book Week, she is doing a NEW giveaway every day!  Yesterday’s giveaway is obviously already over, but there is still time to enter today’s and the rest of the week’s, so get thyself over to her website and ENTER!  And then keep reading, because her blog is awesome.

As for my blog contest, I’m going to be giving away….drumroll please…

A $25 gift card to my most favorite place, The Container Store!  Yippee!

All you have to do is leave me a comment.  Tell me whatever you want ~ why you want the gift card, what you’d buy with it, your favorite organizing tip, just say hi…anything goes (just please behave yourselves).  Be *sure* to leave your email address!  I will “draw” the winner using www.random.org on Monday, May 24, and will email you that day.  If you don’t respond within 48 hours, I’ll re-draw until I get a response.  Oh, one entry per person, please, just to keep it fair.

Thanks, and good luck!

    Is this where I’m supposed to leave a comment? Well anyways, how fun! I’ve never been to the CS but I sooo want to go! I’d probably use to g.c. to buy things for either the play room or babies room. My favorite organizing tip is to never let anything pile up. It’s bad for your house and your mind!

    Your blog has inspired me to get it together! I’ve already organized my hall closet and Aiden’s closet..thanks to your pictures that made me feel SUPER guilty! I’ve also started my entrance spot..but that stuff is SUPER expensive! So I am slowly adding to my organizational arsonal. Next step…BILLS! Need something that I can stick on my kitchen counter that is nice and reasonable.

    I love the Container Store. I would move in there if I could. There is SO much I could do with the gift certificate, I can’t even start to list them all.

    Cool giveaway!

    I am always up for new things to organize. What I need is some place or system to easily store craft items. I don’t necessarily need them accessible to kids all the time — um, hello glitter! — but would still like them easily accessible. um, can I make it more difficult?

    Anyway, I’d look for some sort of container for that at the container store…and you can maybe use that topic for a future blog post if I’m not the fortunate one!

    What a wonderful blog! I saw your post on the GON website and just had to check out your blog! Thanks so much for sharing such great tips – love the ideas and the photos!~

    I unfortunately don’t have the space in our home for my own, dedicated work area, and would love to use a Container Store gift card to purchase items that would help me convert a cabinet into a workable space. Love your blog!

    I would love a gift card to the container store. After having 2 kids within 2 years, our house is so cluttered! This would give me a great head start on organizing!
