An employee in New Hope, Minnesota, won in the employee category for her fun video showing how Public Storage supplies can help customers get organized at home. And a makeup maven won in the fan category for her video showing how inexpensive organization tricks can improve daily routines. Each winner took home $2,500.

After the company announced the contest in January, dozens of Public Storage employees, customers and fans were enticed to enter by the deadline. After careful consideration, the company announced six finalists—three fans and three employees—to have their inspirational organization transformations posted to the Public Storage YouTube channel last week.

According to contest rules, their fates were then in the hands of YouTube viewers. The finalist videos with the most views by 9 a.m. PST on February 1, 2018 were the winners.

An entertaining Public Storage manager in New Hope, Minnesota, said she was inspired to make her video after a recent encounter with a customer. Thanks to trusty Public Storage boxes and bubble wrap, a cluttered laundry room became a functional space again. She won in the employee category with 2,678 views, and she said the video shows what she enjoys most about her job. "I want to show how customers can get the most out of their space," she said.

The winning fan video came from a YouTuber and makeup lover from Chapmansboro, Tennessee. She organized one of the messy spaces in her home her makeup drawer after spending just $1 on storage baskets at the store. Her video jumped ahead of the competition with 1,309 views by the time voting ended! And her organization transformation has truly improved her daily routine. "I take an hour and half to get ready, so my husband always reminds me two hours before we have to go anywhere," she laughed. "But getting organized has made doing my makeup a lot faster."

Watch the videos on the Public Storage YouTube Organization Transformation playlist, and learn more about the finalists and what inspired them in a newly-published blog article.
