Mom’s Ultimate Organizer winner!

WOW. Thank you — over 200 of you shared your clutter-releasing stories in the comments! Pretty inspiring, I must say. It’s weird how one small act — getting rid of a box of old clothes, or forgiving someone, say — can get the ball rolling in the right direction.

Our randomly-picked winner is Maureen…check out what she got rid of:

I got rid of my car. Donated it to a worthy cause. In one fell swoop, I decluttered: the mess of kids’ toys, old newspapers, and junk food remnants that accumulated inside; the emotional clutter of squeezing in errands, shopping, and kid-chauffering–now all of us shop and play local, and older kids have learned to (gasp!) use public transportation!

Bravo! Congrats, Maureen — email me with your mailing address and I’ll get your organizer on its way.

    How I’d love to be close enough to things to shop and play close to home! Way to go, Maureen!

    Come to think of it, I was probably six years old before we became a two-car family. Hmm….
