This seemed to be a big hit the first time around, so I'm doing it again for this quarter of the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival.


What I am giving away
:
A year subscription to my favorite magazine,
Real Simple.

What you need to do to win:

Who can win:
You do not have to be a blogger to win, but you will need a valid e-mail address.

When does the bloggy giveaway end:

I LOVE REal Simple. Everyone who knows me, online and in real life, knows that I am all about clearing the clutter and organizing.

It's sorta weird, but a good closet purge, or playroom pare-down coupled with a trip to Goodwill to donate or the local kids consignment store to sell makes me giddy!

Can't you just feel the lightness and freedom?! ;)
