Two days with a home-clutter expert and a $1,000 Container Store gift card? Sounds like homeowner nirvana.
Dana Hamilton of Highland Village was the lucky winner of Good Housekeeping magazine’s “Put Your House on a Clutter Diet” sweepstakes.
Entering the contest with a prize-winning poem was a no-brainer for Hamilton, a mom of two young children who never had the time or energy to tackle mounds of paperwork and unorganized chaos. The thought of organizing the study and garage was overwhelming.
