Mother’s Day and Toilet Paper

First of all, a reminder: You have a little over 24 hours to take advantage of the 52home sale. At midnight on Wednesday the “MOM” coupon code will expire and you will no longer be able to get 25 percent off an order for your mom. So hurry on over there!

And we couldn’t resist—we just had to choose one more person to be runner-up in our “Pick One Spot” contest! So congratulations Rachel! You win a $50 gift certificate to any home store of your choice. Here’s what Rachel had to say about her once messy spot:

I chose our “storage room.” It’s intended to be “usable storage” but things were so bad in there that I didn’t even know what we had and certainly couldn’t get to anything I might need. For example, every time I would buy a package of toilet paper (24 rolls no less), I’d toss it on top of the stack nearest the door so that we could get to it. But when I would go to get some, it would be no where to be found, and I was left wondering how we went through it so fast! It turns out that the stack I would set the pack on was unsteady enough that invariably the package would fall off to the other side so that I couldn’t see it. I was surprised at how many packages I found when I started to clean things out!

Even though our contest is over, consider tackling that spot in your house this week—you never know what you might find!
