Enter the Closet Cleanout Contest
If you are familiar with Courtney or her work, you know the closet clean out won’t really be about the clothes (although the job will get done). It’s going to be about your life. You’ll talk about the changes you want to make, what’s holding you back and simple ways to move forward. If you just want to focus on the wardrobe though, you can do that too.
After you and Courtney have your wardrobe pared down and your closet in shape, you’ll celebrate with a nice meal at one of your favorite restaurants, with Courtney as your host. You are welcome to bring a friend along too!
Courtney will visit your hometown on a date in 2018 you both agree on. You’ll work together to clean out your closet for a few hours and then celebrate with lunch. She’ll send some homework in advance to get you ready! See instructions to enter below. Your receipt can be for the book or a ticket to the book tour.

STEP THREE: SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY!
Fill out the form below and upload your book receipt and essay submission. Entry deadline is December 16, 2017, 11:59:59 PM Eastern Time.
