What have I been doing, besides my random acts of kindness, you mean? Well, I have been putting my house in order which takes a lot more work than I thought it would. I have also been on a massive return spree and think I am all “mall-ed out” for the foreseeable future.

What am I actually doing? Well, I cleaned my linen closets, junk drawer, and my own closet (okay, just the dresser drawers) and hoping for an Elfa Intervention to organize the hanging closet mess. This is no subtle hint – help me Elfa! BTW, the 30% off sale on Elfa is going on now at The Container Store.

I just thoroughly clean the fridge yesterday, too. Wow, something is up with me.


Good timing – I just heard about a contest that The Container Store is running…

The Perfect Pantry Makeover Contest

You can enter for a chance to win a $1,500 Gift Card towards the elfa pantry of your dreams. All you need to do is visit their Facebook Contest Page and submit a photo a baked good that you have either made or that you admire.

It’s simple and you can submit as many photos as you like – just make sure you have your favorites submitted by THIS SUNDAY, January, 20th. Three finalists will be selected on Monday, January 21st and you will be able to vote for your favorite entry until Sunday, January 27th.

Works for me as I have been busy baking (flour banana bread – two versions – one as Joanne Chang intended and one adaptation minus the cinnamon and walnuts of her recipe but with chocolate chips added) – so I will take more pics as I bake my way through January.

For more information and to see what treats have already been submitted, just click the image below to jump straight to the contest page.
