If you weren’t one of the “winners” last week, keep on trying! You really DID win in that you now have a wonderfully organized space in your home!! Be proud of yourself, and try again this week.

Welcome to the third week of our New Year’s Organizing Revolution! This week we are focusing on organizing family and living rooms and playrooms.  Because of the variety of homes and personal styles, we decided to combine these rooms to give you all the opportunity to show us how you keep your family’s common rooms organized.

These rooms can be difficult to keep neat (especially playrooms), if there are not places for your family to keep their things.  I can’t wait to see all of your hard work and super organizational talents!!

If you are new to this Organizing Challenge, check out the Tips on Getting Started post here. You can also check out all the details including all of the prize sponsors here.

2. Take a picture of your organized space. For beginner tips on taking great pictures, check out Ask Anna’s post here.

3. Upload your photo to the internet. If you don’t have a blog, learn how to easily upload a picture to Pinterest in Becky’s post here. Becky also explains how to link your picture to a link party.

4. Visit Organizing Homelife here and add your link to the party. Feel free to link up your pictures anytime from Monday thru Friday at 5:59 a.m. PST.

5. From Friday thru Sunday, stop back to vote for your favorite organized space.

6. Use ONLY pictures that are from your home/space. Do NOT use pictures that are from other sources – those spaces will be removed from the link party. You may link up until Friday at 5:59 a.m. PST and start voting on at 6:00 a.m. Friday thru Sunday at noon PST. If your blog is set for private use only, you MUST change your setting or you will be removed.

Scentsy started in 2005 after two busy moms presented an idea for a safer and healthier alternative to traditional wick and fire candles. Scentsy wants to help you warm the heart, enliven the senses, and inspire the soul. Currently Scentsy offers wax bars in over 80 different fragrances and over 75 different warmers in three different sizes. Scentsy has a patented technology that uses a low watt light bulb to warm a wax with a low melting temperature. This ensures lower temperatures to avoid burns and no open flames to avoid fire risks. As well, there are no toxins being released into the air, thus a safer and healthier way to make your house smell wonderful! Scentsy also offers a lot more than just warmers and wax though! Scentsy also has room sprays, scent circles, travel tins, buddies & baby buddies for the little ones in your life, and scent paks. On top of that Scentsy also has a layers line that includes great products like shower gel and cream and bath tablets, body butter and body lotion, body spray and solid perfume, dryer disks and wash whiffs, and hand soaps and hand creams.
