    Anybody up for a Dirty Challenge?

    Advertisements
    What is a Dirty Challenge?
    A Dirty Challenge is when you - literally - air your dirty-side and vow to clean it up!

    If you have a messy table, room, a piece of furniture that needs a makeover, carport or even your whole house you take photos of the mess or just write about it in a thread titled "My Dirty Challenge" (or something like that).
    You can ask for ideas of how to clean it up, suggestions or just encouragement to get it done (Cause cleaning SUCKS!)
    And when you're finally finished cleaning and taking care of business you post pictures, a video or just write about it as proof of your efforts and everyone gives you much needed praise!

    If you have an odd storage problems - people can give solutions.
    If you have water, fire and other damage peole can give advice.
    If you have just a bunch of junk people can help you sort through it and decide what needs to go and what can stay.

    It's suppose to be fun and benificial.

    Anyone up for it? I am.



    As promised - it is sunday and I am starting my personal challenge: http://militarysos.com/forum/showthread.php?t=163111

    I'd be here all day with the storage part (we have like 6 totes full of crap in both closets!)! I'm hoping moving into a bigger place will help with some storage stuff!

    I have an amazing collection of 31 plastic containers (the big 20gallon ones) and boxes that are packed full of everything from valuables to papers that need to be sorted.
    Most of them are in the laundry room and in the carport overflowing with crap.

    I've organized all of our belongings several times and 3 times in the last 3 years I've gone through all of our things and taken truckloads of unwanted things (toys, clothes, books, etc) to Goodwill

    I've made a huge dent but have yet to completely tame the madness!!

    Hmm... I like cleaning. But I hate moving. I have videos of my packing process though when I was getting ready to move this last time. It was nuts.

    I'll take pictures when it's clean, how about that? That's my goal for next week, to start cleaning and hit every room in the house, including the garage.
