Okay you gals have convinced me to keep the round-up going for another year. Thank you for your encouragement and support and especially a big thank you to all of you who participated in 2008!
As many of you suggested, this year we are going to concentrate on smaller projects rather than entire rooms. For example in May we will be concentrating on surfaces in our home and you’ll be able to choose any surface in your home you’d like. It could be your dining room table, a kitchen counter top or even your bedside table. It’ll be up to you whether you do one surface or many. I’m hoping that the accomplishment of getting one project done will be the motivation you need to keep going.
Here’s the specifics:
What: Org Junkie’s Monthly Round- Up
Who: Anyone who wants to participate, everyone is invited. You can do one month or all, just jump in when you want to.
When: Every month in 2009
Why: To conquer various tasks in your home, to be motivated to continue and to be inspired by other participants.
How: At the end of every month I’ll put up a Mr. Linky for you to link up to your before and after pictures of the project you tackled as per the monthly theme. Please feel free to use the banner above or button over there in the sidebar if you like.
Prizes: I’m definitely hoping to continue to offer prizes. Again it will depend on sponsorship (if you are interested please let me know!) and as the prizes become available I’ll update this post.
February ~ Recipes – random winner to receive a copy of BH&G Early Spring 2009 Storage magazine
May~ Surface/Shelf – FIVE random winners will receive a copy of Throw Out Fifty Things: Clear the Clutter, Find Your Life
July ~ Hair supplies/makeup – random winner will receive a copy of Jennifer Ford Berry’s book Organize Now!: A Week By Week Guide To Simplify Your Space And Your Life
September ~ Purse/Bag – random winner to receive two organizing magazines

I’m so very excited about this as many of these areas I need to accomplish in my own home and will be tackling them along with you. I also hope to offer encouragement and practical solutions throughout the month related to the different areas.
Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
Let’s have fun and get stuff done! Yeehaw!!
