KimG924's before. All the elements are in place.

As with any adventure, we've got a list of things to do before we start. This weekend, we're finishing our preparations. Here's our list. Although it looks long, some of it's a jump on next week's tasks.


  • Read through to page 69
  • Take the AT Quiz on pages 42-44 of the book.
  • Take pictures of your home and upload them to our Flickr page
  • Determine your budget: The Cure is not about money, it's about spending time getting to know your home. We'll be showing you to do it economically.
  • Will you be doing the Deep Treatment or the One Room Remedy?: We recommend the Deep Treatment for first timers
  • Start a style tray Use a tray, a scrapbook or a box to gather your clippings. If you've never done one before, we suggest taking your style tray off line for hands-on experience.
  • Figure out where you'll be buying fresh flowers every week: We like Trader Joe's because we're there anyway buying food.
  • Pick a day next week to visit your favorite home store: Even if it's out of your budget, it's a great place to pick up ideas.
  • Start a list of things that bother you in your apartment that need to get fixed: On our list? We're replacing all our lightbulbs with CFL's as they burn out.
  • Determine where you'll put your outbox: we keep ours by the front door.
  • Figure out one item to put out on the street:

We love the sunny summery feeling of HeyLucy's style tray, from the pops of yellow and green to the shiny surfaces
