Ok, so do you have a messy room? Or whole messy house/apartment? Struggle with organization and keeping everything in order? I totally do! Some rooms look like a clutter bomb went off–and while I could blame that all on having two little boys, that wouldn’t be the whole truth! 😉 This year, I’ve been working on getting things more organized and having a better system–as evidenced by our little pantry reorganization, shoe corner, and our craft/office room makeover that we’re working on right now! But, there always seems to be lots more that could be done.

We moved into our house two years ago–when I was 36 weeks along with Little Brother. Needless to say then, getting the house in order was a slow process and boy was it messy!!! Check out what our dining room/living room looked like when we moved in…

Wow, yikes!! I’d like to say it only looked that way for 24 hours or so, but that definitely was NOT the case!!

Can you relate?! If so, you might want to check this awesome contest from, as they search for the Nation’s Messiest Apartment!! There’s a $3,000 prize at stake, which could make for some serious spring cleaning/organizing money!!
To enter: Snap some pictures of your mess (we’re not talking dirty, just the cluttered, unorganized mess)! Then, like the ForRent Facebook page at and upload your messiest apartment photo under the contest tab. (Hurry though, because the contest only runs through April 23rd.) A panel of judges will then choose five finalists who have the messiest apartment and then, the voting gets turned over to their Facebook friends!  The public will decide from the five finalists who wins the grand prize of $3,000. And, four finalists will each win $500! The winners will be announced on or around April 30th!

Disclosure: has paid me to review their contest and offer my opinion. All opinions and experiences are my own.
