Get Organized with this Martha Stewart Home Office Giveaway

Posted by


Summer might not be over yet, but this week Martha appeared on "The View" to share her tips and recommendations for fall organization. Back to school for kids means back to routine for parents and families. That's why Martha provides everything from tips to product recommendations to make sure you're prepared for the season ahead. If you missed her on TV, you can still see her back to routine ideas here and get her shopping checklist here.

We're also giving away a complete set of Martha Stewart Home Office furniture along with all the products you need to fill it. You can learn more and enter here. We'll announce one lucky winner on August 31st. In the meantime get ready for your fall routine, and enjoy this 40% off coupon for the Martha Stewart Home Office collection at Staples. (Personally, I love the shagreen journal.)

Friday Giveaway! (Closed)

Instead of posting about a book this Friday, I wanted to share a new DVD set from the BBC that I am very excited to watch this weekend—The Diamond Queen and The Queen's Palaces. These DVDs have been released in honor of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, which is being celebrated in the United Kingdom this week.

I am completely obsessed with royal palaces, so I can't wait to take a look at the Queen’s official residences featured in the DVD: Buckingham Palace, which most of us think of as the Queen's home; Windsor Castle, which dates back to the 11th century and has gone from medieval fortress to a romantic fantasy; and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, formerly a monastery, and now home of objects from the Royal Collection that are bound to Palace’s turbulent history.

One lucky blog reader can win the DVD set, plus a gift basket, which includes a tea set, mugs, a commemorative CD, tea, a teapot, a pillow, and a tablecloth. Just leave a comment here to enter the giveaway. Please note that all comments must be approved by an administrator, so you comment will not show up immediately. See official rules for more details.
