We have us some winners! Thanks everyone for participating in this challenge and putting yourselves out there. I’m so proud of all you. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts and your answers to the questions. Wow how inspiring! I was especially tickled just reading your excitement at all you had accomplished. That’s just so awesome!

Selecting just three in each category was hard and I got a little spastic trying to narrow it all down which in turn led to great doses of chocolate just to calm all the twitches. Unfortunately I had trouble making sense of some of the pictures and a few others were unclear but I did my best to carefully and prayerfully considered each entry. Your answers to the questions played an important part in helping me make my final decision.

You are ALL winners in my book especially for your determination and perseverance! I pray that the momentum from this challenge carries you on to organizing even more spaces in your home!

So on with the show, this is it……

Whole Room Category ~ 1st place

Prize: $150.00 US donated by Lifeorganizers.com


Wow, what an amazing overall transformation! I loved Dawn’s thorough description of her room as she took us on a tour of every corner. I really felt like I was there walking around with her. She got very creative with her storage solutions and was able to re-purpose a lot of what she had. She was also able to create a home for everything and set some great limits for herself and her family not to mention all the purging she did. Dawn has an amazing cabinet in her basement that I am COVETING, yes I know it’s wrong but I can’t help myself. It is a beauty, you MUST check it out for yourself. If this transformation doesn’t motivate you I don’t know what will! Also I can’t go on without thanking Dawn for being such a supporter of all the participants, your comments on all the posts didn’t go unnoticed!

    You all did a fabulous job, and you deserve to win! But, rats! I would have like to win, too. I’m not a sore loser, though. In fact, I’m a winner because my junk drawer is no longer junkie, and my dining room is cozy, neat, and clean. I’m happy with my results, and that’s the best prize. Well, maybe not THE best, but it’s great! Congratulations to all the winners! I’m always up for another challenge in the future.

    What else is there to say except WOW! I am so excited. Thank you, Laura, for hosting this challenge. I could not have got my room done without it. I got a lot of motivation and great tips from reading all the other entries. They were all great and they all deserve congratulations for their hard work on their newly-organized rooms. I am glad to say that a week later my room is still clean and organized and the kids have been having so much fun in it. Thanks again. This really made my day.

    wow! these ladies did an amazing job! I would have loved to have participated in this challenge (as I have a very LARGE closet and disorganized closet), but b/t working full time and graduate school I haven’t been able to swing it. school is over as of wednesday so maybe I’ll get around to my closet yet! 🙂
