declutter contest

The Winners of Spring 2023
“Declutter & Let It Go” Contest!

The “Declutter & Let It Go” Workshop was key to class members setting up intentional strategies & plans to lighten the load of “Stuff!”

We had a contest to inspire action! They had two weeks to work in their category. Here are the results:

3 Categories for Prizes

Category #1 WINNER “Before & After”

Cheryl-Home Office-After

 Cheryl’s Home Office “Before”


 Cheryl’s Home Office “After”

The Winner “Before & After” Category #1

Cheryl wrote “Before the contest I felt down, deflated, and even paralyzed when I saw this room. Now I feel like I have a true sanctuary and I feel so motivated and inspired.

“First I de-cluttered and organized the room. Then I put in flooring that I had already purchased and replaced the broken blinds (both with help).  (Notice the floor was concrete and she put in the flooring in one week!) Then I went through everything, cleaned, and decorated. I did all this after work and on the weekend.”

 Congratulations, Cheryl!

“It has been a great opportunity to be in the contest. It has helped me increase what I would have done and helped me up my game. Thank you so much! As usual you bring out the best in us.”

 Congratulations, Tammy!

The Winner “Household Items” Category #3

Winner of Category #3 – Amy wrote: “The reason for accumulating so much unneeded stuff? There was space to store it, items were hidden behind other items. I was surprised at how quickly I was able to get the decluttering job done. There are other rooms that I plan to do the same process.
