The 20/20 Home Cure: Join Us Monday!

• Cure Clock: 3 days till start
• Assignment: Buy or borrow the book!

Hi everyone! It's time to polish up our homes again, and just as we did last year I've completely re-tooled The Cure for busy schedules and working stiffs like us. It's going to be shorter, quicker and much more accessible. Check out the video above, and jump below for more info. We start next Monday morning, and it's going to be fun.


This 20/20 Cure is adapted completely from The Eight-Step Home Cure, so please get yourself a copy if you don't have one already. While I'll give you a good deal of info for each project in my videos, the real dirt is in the book.

THE 20/20 CURE

Welcome to my NEW 20/20 Cure. In only 20 minutes a day for 20 days we're all going to make our homes beautiful, organized and healthy. This fall I'm making my original Home Cure shorter and more accessible so that everyone can do it and feel good about their home.

Want to do more during these four weeks? Go for it. The twenty projects in the 20/20 Cure are easy and powerful when added all together, but should you want to take on a bigger project, or tackle one room in its entirety, I'd love to see it.

Spoiler Alert: For this Cure I'm going to be running the same series of videos that we made last fall, so if you've never seen them - Enjoy! - and if you HAVE seen them already, it will be like watching re-runs of your favorite show. :-)


The Day's Video - Each day I'll be giving you a project from the book via a short video (oooh, gasp!). I'll post the assignment at 7:45 est each day, so you know what's on tap. For more information on each project, I'll direct you to the chapter in the book where you can read in more detail if you wish.

The Day's Email - Each day's video link will also be sent out via email simultaneously as its broadcast across four of our sites (Sara Kate is doing a special cooking Cure on The Kitchn).

Share Your Cure - As you check off each day, let us know how you're doing. Ask questions and discuss your Cure in the daily discussion thread. Tweet and Facebook your progress, and share your pics in our 20/20 Cure Flickr Group. Before you know it, you'll be done and amazed with what you've accomplished.
