Win An Eames-Hang-It-All, The Prettiest Wall Storage To Ever Exist

The first thing you do when you get home is take off your bag, gloves, scarf, coat, and hat. And then store everything in your already-cramped closet. Right?

Well, wouldn’t it be nice if all that stuff didn’t take up any space in your closet?

Enter to win an Eames Hang-It-All

Two Eames Hang-It-Alls are mounted to an entryway wall and storing two jackets, a hat, an umbrella, a bag, and a kids coat.

Just be sure to enter the giveaway by 4 PM this Friday, February 19th. We’ll pick one winner at random from all the entries received and notify him/her on that same day.*

Win Marie Kondo’s New Book ‘Spark Joy’ (And Never Worry About Organizing Your Home Again)

In honor of Clean Off Your Desk Day, and because we want to help you live the most spacious life possible, we’re giving away four copies of Marie Kondo’s new book Spark Joy!

Only the most organized person in the world/the Beyoncé of organizing. Through her “KonMari” method of organizing and best-selling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, she’s helped millions of people around the world declutter their homes for good.

Her secret? She advises you to only keep the things that “spark joy” (make you happy).

If you win a copy of Spark Joy by Marie Kondo, you don’t have to. Because you’ll learn how to finally organize and store everything from shirts, socks, kitchen tools, and toys, to cleaning supplies, papers, magazines, books, electronics, that awkward-but-adorable photo of you and your prom date, and more.

MakeSpace Is Offering Free Goodwill Pickups In DC Through November

Last year, MakeSpace picked up over 60,000 pounds of donations from our customers and brought them to Goodwill. All of which Goodwill uses to help fund job creation and training for thousands of people in our communities who are in need.

Today, we’re happy to announce that MakeSpace has partnered with Goodwill of Greater Washington to offer free Goodwill pickups to all residents in our  Washington, DC storage service area from now through November 30th.

If you’re not a current MakeSpace customer, but live in DC and would like to participate, simply schedule a free Goodwill pickup at makespace.com/dc/goodwill and we’ll bring you a laundry-sized MakeSpace + Goodwill bag.*

If you live in DC and already signed up for MakeSpace, then you’re all set. You’ll automatically get a MakeSpace + Goodwill bag included with your bins when you schedule your first free empty MakeSpace bin dropoff.

Once you receive the bag, fill it with gently-used items that you’d like to donate, hand it to us, and we’ll deliver it to Goodwill, free of charge.

We’re honored to assist DC Goodwill in their vision of building a community where people are empowered to achieve their fullest potential, and we’re incredibly grateful to each and every one of you for all of your help.

As you clean your apartment this month in preparation for your Thanksgiving celebration, consider donating your old clothes to DC Goodwill to help others in need.

Thank you!

 

*Offer ends on November 30, 2015, is only open to residents in the Washington, DC areas that MakeSpace serves who are not currently MakeSpace customers, and is subject to availability. There’s a limit of one appointment per household and one Goodwill bag per appointment. We’ll wait up to 10 minutes while you pack your Goodwill bag with donations. To get a receipt or tax deduction form after your appointment, download the Goodwill of Greater Washington app for iPhone or Android. Any items that are too big to fit in a Goodwill bag and/or against Goodwill’s Donation Guidelines will not be accepted.

Get $75 Of Free Storage! Refer A Friend To MakeSpace

You could use more space in your small apartment. And your friends could use more space in theirs too.

So, for a limited time only, we decided to triple your referral payout from $25 of MakeSpace credit to $75 of MakeSpace credit. (That’s A LOT of space!)

Now when you refer a friend to MakeSpace who signs up using your invite link and completes a pickup, you both get $75 of free MakeSpace credit.*

The best part: There’s no limit to how many friends you can refer, or the amount of MakeSpace credit you can earn just by sharing your invite link.

Need help finding your MakeSpace invite link so you can get $75 of free storage?

Simply log in to your MakeSpace account, click any of the pop-up share buttons, and let the spacious times roll.

*Referred friends must be new MakeSpace customers. There’s no limit to how many people you can refer. A referral is defined as someone who schedules and completes a MakeSpace booking.

MakeSpace Is Offering Free Goodwill® Donation Pickups In NYC, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.

Last year you helped us collect 35,000 pounds of clothing donations for Goodwill® — thank you!

This year, we’re happy to announce that our partnership with Goodwill® is back in NYC and live in Chicago and Washington, DC for the first time!

Starting now, when you schedule your first MakeSpace pickup, you’ll see a shiny blue MakeSpace + Goodwill® bag tagging along. While you pack your bins, toss any used clothes you’d like to donate in the bag and hand it to our Upload Team when they pick up your bins.

We’ll take care of the rest!

Note: Because our Upload Team is on a tight schedule, we won’t be able to provide a tax receipt for donations. Clothing we transport to Goodwill® will not become MakeSpace’s own donation. It’ll always be your donation, we’re just happy we could help make it happen. One donation bag per customer for first empty bin dropoff only.

If an item you loved goes on sale, you’ll receive a notification letting you know.

Basically, Spring is a new way to browse, discover, and shop items on your phone — and with new brands added every week, we’re already addicted.
