"Clear that Clutter" Sweepstake Sponsored by SpareFoot

by Holly Robinson November 21, 2013 4:27 PM
Years ago, my aunt read a book called Clutter’s Last Stand by Don Aslett. She loved that book because it helped her figure out ways to de-junk and de-clutter her home. SpareFoot in Austin, Texas, is providing impetus (like the book did for my aunt) to help people ‘clear that clutter’ from their home.

SpareFoot is sponsoring a ‘Clear that Clutter’ sweepstakes to help consumers win the war against their stuff that is stuffed all over their home and garage. People can enter the sweepstakes from now until December 15. The winner of the sweepstakes will get up to six months’ worth of storage from SpareFoot in the form of a $500 Visa gift card. [More]

More often than not the only reason they say that is because they don’t have a clue how to use newer phones. That is understandable; new phones are more like mini-computers than phones. Using them can be difficult if you don’t know how to do so. [More]

You’ve seen those ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures where a woman is given a makeover. She gets her hair cut and styled and a professional make-up artist applies the latest make-up colors. The change is so drastic that it’s hard for even close friends to recognize who the woman is.

Some self storage facilities are getting a make-over to where people don’t initially recognize them as self storage facilities. [More]
