Hi guys! I'm back with another decluttering video. This was actually harder than decluttering beauty products. I didn't get rid of as much stuff as I thought I would. One step at a time:)
I accumulated these items over the past few years when I was spending indiscriminately. Even though most of the items are not expensive you can see that I have so many unopened items that I purchased and simply tossed to the side after the high of purchasing them dissipated. I am learning to be a better steward over what I have and to be intentional about my purchases. So I am shopping my own closet, putting the brakes on spending, and getting rid of excess!
Although the items are not particularly expensive I would like to pass them on to someone who might make use of them instead of just throwing them away. I also do donate items to women's shelters and just made a donation before Thanksgiving. I will make another shelter donation once I tackle my closet. With that being said...I am excited to announce my very first GIVEAWAY! I will be giving away several of the unused items displayed at the end of the video to one or maybe two of my subscribers. If you are on a decluttering mission and don't need any more stuff feel free to still enter the giveaway and consider re-gifting to someone who might want the items.
1. In order to enter the giveaway you must be a subscriber to my channel.
2. Please leave a comment on this video stating that you want to be entered into the giveaway. Also feel free to comment on your own decluttering projects or make recommendations regarding what types of videos you would like to see on this channel.
3. Must have a US mailing address. I can't justify the cost of international shipping...remember I am on a debt free journey:)
A winner (maybe two) will be selected randomly to receive some of the new items displayed at the end of the video. I will make contact winner(s) via the message feature here on Youtube to arrange mailing.
Deadline to Enter: Monday December 7th
Thanks so much for watching!
This site provides links to random videos hosted at YouTube, with the emphasis on random.
The original idea for this site actually stemmed from another idea to provide a way of benchmarking the popularity of a video against the general population of YouTube videos. There are probably sites that do this by now, but there wasn’t when we started out. Anyway, in order to figure out how popular any one video is, you need a pretty large sample of videos to rank it against. The challenge is that the sample needs to be very random in order to properly rank a video and YouTube doesn’t appear to provide a way to obtain large numbers of random video IDs.

Even if you search on YouTube for a random string, the set of results that will be returned will still be based on popularity, so if you’re using this approach to build up your sample, you’re already in trouble. It turns out there is a multitude of ways in which the YouTube search function makes it very difficult to retrieve truly random results.
So how can we provide truly random links to YouTube videos? It turns out that the YouTube programming interface (API) provides additional functions that allow the discovery of videos which, with the right approach, are much more random. Using a number of tricks, combined some subtle manipulation of the space-time fabric, we have managed to create a process that yields something very close to 100% random links to YouTube videos.
YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos. Most content on YouTube is uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, and Hulu offer some of their material via YouTube as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can only watch videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos. Videos deemed potentially inappropriate are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.
YouTube and selected creators earn advertising revenue from Google AdSense, a program which targets ads according to site content and audience. The vast majority of its videos are free to view, but there are exceptions, including subscription-based premium channels, film rentals, as well as YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, subscription services respectively offering premium and ad-free music streaming, and ad-free access to all content, including exclusive content commissioned from notable personalities. As of February 2017, there were more than 400 hours of content uploaded to YouTube each minute, and one billion hours of content being watched on YouTube every day. As of August 2018, the website is ranked as the second-most popular site in the world, according to Alexa Internet, just behind Google. As of May 2019, more than 500 hours of video content are uploaded to YouTube every minute.
YouTube has faced criticism over aspects of its operations, including its handling of copyrighted content contained within uploaded videos, its recommendation algorithms perpetuating videos that promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods, hosting videos ostensibly targeting children but containing violent and/or sexually suggestive content involving popular characters, videos of minors attracting pedophilic activities in their comment sections, and fluctuating policies on the types of content that is eligible to be monetized with advertising.
