Stash Bash is one of our most popular events of the year, but if you've never participated or are new to the community you might be wondering what all the fuss is about.
There are a lot of fun classes, challenges, crops, and other experiences in our industry. Stash Bash is totally different from them all.
I've mapped out all the details for our July 14-20 event, but here are nine things you might not know unless you've participated in the past:
1. It's not just about organization. Stash management is more than just where you put your stuff. That's why Stash Bash includes activities that put a dent in the surplus and help you better understand your preferences.
2. It's not a class. I can promise you will learn a ton, but instead of having you read extensive handouts or watch long videos you'll spend time in Stash Bash doing. This is a challenge-based event that's all about action.
3. It's customizable. It can be frustrating to receive an assignment you're just not in the mood for. Instead, Stash Bash puts the reins in your hands, allowing each participant to choose activities that suit your needs now.
4. You have time to participate. This flexibility also means that it can take as much or as little time as you have. Even if you're crunched, you can still see progress by completing as few as three challenges.
5. We're all cheering for you. One of my favorite parts of leading events like Stash Bash is the generous community. We will celebrate victories and tackle challenges together.
6. Digital scrapbookers are welcomed. Clutter on your computer can be just as overwhelming, so we don't leave out those who scrapbook with pixels instead of paper. Stash Bash is inclusive.
7. The effects are long-lasting. While the event is just seven days, what you take away with stick with you for the long haul. You'll be able to permanently reduce clutter and better manage your stash.
8. You might fall in love. Warning: spending time with your stuff might make you want to shop less. As you re-discover products, you'll feel more excited to create with what you have.
9. It's all about fun. There's enough work elsewhere in life that managing your stash can seem like the least fun thing ever. Stash Bash turns something meh into an enjoyable experience.
