*Giveaway time* Clutter Rehab…

September 14, 2011
This weeks’ giveaway comes from a self proclaimed organizing junkie… Laura Wittmann. Laura is an author and blogger of “I’m an organizing junkie” who is passionate about sharing her organizing tips and tricks.  She is the reason I became so interested in organizing my own home.  I have been a reader of her blog for about 3 years and love visiting it every day.

Today Laura is offering her book to three lucky readers.

What is clutter rehab?


With 101 quick-and-easy projects for organizing your bathroom, kitchen, closet and more, Clutter Rehab takes the stress out of home organizing. As you painlessly tackle piles of toys, stacks of paper and over-spilling drawers, you’ll discover how to make de-cluttering your home an addictive pleasure.

#10 Remember in Pictures.

Take a snapshot of sentimental keepsakes you don’t use, then donate or even sell them for cash

#26 Be Grocery Smart.

Save fridge and pantry space—and money!—by buying only those items on your weekly meal planner

#32 Go Green.

#56 Childhood Archives.

  1. I am a follower of your blog from Japan! We just moved here almost 2 months ago, and I’m having to redo the way I organize the house. I’m in a Japanese home that is not set up the same way as an American home, so it’s been a lot of work getting settled. I am not yet very organized. I also shared about your blog on my blog. I love reading your stuff. I have made a home management binder that I use everyday and love it!

  3. sasicas says:

    The area that needs the most help in our house would be our bedroom, it’s the catch-all of the house.

  4. Kalen says:


    I have been a follower of your blog for some time now and have drawn so much inspiration from your projects! Thank you for helping me get organized! 🙂

  6. Kalen says:

    I pride myself on having an organized home, but for some reason I can not get a handle on my daughters bedroom! They are 7 and 4 and cant seem to keep it tidy. I need some creative ideas to manage their tiny little space!


  7. pinkbeary says:

    The area that needs the most help is my books/office supplies space. My DH and I have the hardest time letting go of books and seem to accumulate way too much office supplies (that were a steal at the time).

  8. Kalen says:


    I shared this giveaway on my facebook page and twitter account!


  9. DaniLee says:

    I follow ABFOL

  10. DaniLee says:

    The area that needs the most help is my bedroom. It is where everything ends up.

  11. I am a follower of ABFOL, and the area I need the most help would be the living room and our room. These are the two places that everything seems to end up. Although at the moment I forgive myself. I only just gave birth a week ago. So I can let it go a little bit more. >.<

  12. Kids toys and paper clutter…. ugh.

  13. Carri says:

  15. A.C. says:

    I’ve been reading your blog for a few weeks now and just started following it. I’m another reader from out in Japan and our tiny apartment definitely needs some organizational help! Probably the worst area is the dining room/office area.

    I need to organize all the closets in my house. Every room has a decent sized closet but the space isn’t being used properly which results in closets full of piles and junk

  34. The Real Me! says:

    I’ve been eyeballing this book. I am a follower of ABFOL.

  35. The Real Me! says:

    I think my biggest organizational problem is my office/craft/homeschool room. There are too many things going on there at the same time and it always looks cluttered.

  36. Pamela says:

    Well now, that is a tough question….. I want to redo my closets, but they really aren’t cluttered. My office needs a filing redo, but that really isn’t cluttered. My 5 year old sewing room………arghhhhh! That IS cluttered and needs a total rehab!

  51. Beth says:

  52. Beth says:

    What area needs organizing? Can I saw the entire house? Is that allowed? The one that needs it the most is probably the entire collection of toys — since they go over 3 rooms, I can’t really pick a room.

  53. almquist7 says:

    I just became a follower last week. I am crazy about organizing and I love your blog.

  54. almquist7 says:

  57. Amanda says:

    We just moved into our house a few months ago. It’s considerably bigger than what we are used to and now that we own our own home we have picked up lots of misc items and I just can’t seem to get everything organized. It’s clean but not organized and the hubby doesn’t get that! haha I need to find a way to get things organized in a simplified manner so that he can keep it that way too!

  74. Samantha says:

    My office needs some major organization! I have a scrapbooking desk, along with my sewing machine in there, and it is the room that we store, well basically everything in!

  75. Joan J says:

    After decades of being disorganized, I am happy to declare myself a fairly organized person, but still have “problem areas” that need work. The first to come to mind is p.a.p.e.r! Having switched to a wireless laptop, I got rid of my clutter-catching desk — but now find paper piles land on my kitchen table! I really need a “process” of handling all types of paper.

    BIG fan of orgjunkie.com!

  76. I have one room in the house that is the “Catch All Room” If the item doesn’t have a home and I don’t want to find it one while cleaning the house, that’s where it goes. The room looks like something off the Horders TV show. I would love a copy of this book. I’m a new follower and found out about your site from Laura’s FB post.

  77. Allison says:

    I need help with my pantry!!

  78. Ginny says:

    I am a follower of ABFOL and the area of my home that needs the most organization is my kitchen. We don’t have a lot of space so things get overly cluttered easily. I’m sharing this with my friends on FB as well! Thank you!!!

  79. Amy says:

    Happy Wednesday! The room in our house that needs an intervention would def be our bonus room/playroom. We moved into a new house at the end of July and things are a MESS with the kids’ toys and books! We would love lots of neat ideas for kid-friendly storage!

  80. Hi, I am a follower of ABFOL

    As a mother of 6 kids and counting I need help in EVERY area, lol!!! Seriously though, there are a few that are beyond what I can do alone. Those areas are digital media (documents and photographs), hard copy docs (finanical, legal, medical, && kids stuff), and storage things (craft stuff, holiday itmes, && organizing saved clothing)… I could continue the list but those are the areas that are in extreme choas for the mere quanity of things I have per category!!! *sigh*

    Thank you for the opportunity to “WIN” a book!!!

  100. I’m a follower. 🙂

  101. I’m not sure what needs more help, my craft/office area or my closet/storage mess. I guess my craft/office area is more visable so that should get them makeover first.

  102. Sandra says:

    Love this giveaway – I’ve been wanting this book for a while 🙂 Also sharing on fb. My sewing room needs the most attention, but so does our toy room – it’s so cluttered up. Thanks!

  103. I am a new follower, and the part of my home that needs the most organizing is the new nursery! It has to triple as my craft room AND guest room. Really I just need to organize my life. cstruiks@hotmail.com

    My biggest clutter problem happens on my kitchen counters.

    I would have to say my biggest areas of disaster are the Kitchen and toy storage! I seem to LOVE everything in my kitchen but I think I’m holding onto items for their looks and not their function. my cupboards are to the max but I don’t know what to do! This would be a great book to have and share. ~Yvonne
