Ultimate Closetmaid Storage Giveaway
April 25 - May 10, 2014
I have teamed up with 
Chronically Content, Deliciously Savvy, My Silly Little Gang
and several other bloggers to give my readers the opportunity to win several different giveaways!
I will be posting a new giveaway every couple of weeks to celebrate our journey through an unconventional way of becoming parents. You can learn more about our journey thus far here.

Now is the time to begin "Spring Cleaning",
it's never fun but when you have new storage options,
it is a little bit more fun.

Keeping an organized home is vital to having a happy home or so I've heard!
I need to get super organized so this Spring I've been doing some major spring cleaning.
I've been getting rid of clothing, reorganizing EVERYTHING,
and trying to make room for the future foster kids items... 
Letting go of my clutter has been a little tough,
but it feels soooo amazing.
So do you need to get organized this spring as well?

I've teamed up with several bloggers to bring you a Closetmaid Ultimate Storage Giveaway.
One lucky winner will win a mini off-set organizer, a six cube organizer, and six cloth bins!
Plenty of storage space for any room and so versatile!
