With March brings spring cleaning and the perfect time to de-clutter your house and life. During the month of March, we want to hear your stories about how you’ve cleaned out the old and made your family life better.

Maybe you have the secret to getting your kids to clean their rooms. Have you tried applying a minimalism theme to your house and life? Or maybe your recent digital detox helped you de-clutter your personal life. Whatever you have to say, we want you to share your story here on Spoke.

We’re looking for unique stories! Think outside the box – we want to be laughing until our sides hurt or inspired to see things from a slightly different perspective. Our editors will select three original stories as featured articles, and the writers of those stories will earn $100. Winners are selected based on the quality of writing, originality, and number of page views received.
