Smarties, it’s January. The kids are FINALLY back in school (is it just us or was that the longest winter vacation EVER?!). It’s time to hit the “reset” button and get organized. Maybe it’s your home that needs organization, maybe it’s your clothes, maybe it’s a pantry full of junk that needs a little (or a whole-lot-a) purging. We all know what it’s like, so that that’s why we are bringing you the most awesome organizing giveaway ever to hit the QC – meet the 2014 Smarty Pledge to Purge Giveaway!
We collaborated with a group of the most organized and “refreshing” ladies in town to come up with this fun purging exercise. Meet Christine Nelson of Simply Sassy Coach, Cindy Williams with Green Jeans Consignment, the FAB FOUR LKN moms of Sail Again Children’s Consignment, Laurie Martin of Simplicity and Adri Warrick/Carolyn Hallett of The Whole Tulip. These ladies were handpicked to help you achieve your “reset” goals.
We’ve nailed down four “zones” to simplify things (because isn’t that what January is all about? Simplicity??!):
– Mom’s Closet & Wardrobe,
– Kids’ Rooms,
– Mom Zones, and
– Pantry/Fridge Zones.
So here’s the deal. We will have FOUR winners, one for each zone. Please fill out a survey for each zone you’d like to win. Are you happy to win any of them? Then fill out every survey! Don’t be shy in your answers – these ladies are going to pick the best submission based on their goals and your goals. Winners will be selected on Monday, January 20th. Work with your coach begins immediately!
The best part? You get to share and document your experience on CSP! Yes, you! The week of February 10th will be dedicated to the before and after footage of your makeovers. How cool is that?!
Aside from filling out your entries, we kindly as that you share this on facebook (click fb icon and share away!) and like all of our pages. You also have to be a CSP enewsletter subscriber. Easy peasy!
