We got this tip from AT:LA reader Jonathan about a company who will go through your mucky closets...and organize them! And while you may sputter, "But...but...all I need is a free Sunday!", we say: Wouldn't you rather spend that time brunching with your friends, hitting up the farmer's market, or haggling over a painting of underpants at the Fairfax High swap meet? Of course! So why not shell out and let the hardcore organizers at New Order Professional Organizing do the dirty work and the heavy lifting for you?The process works something like this: you get a free phone consultation where you pour out your woes (like how it takes you 30 minutes to find a matching pair of shoes in your closet), and they tell you ways to help. And then there is the obligatory budget talks which then determines how in-depth they'll go: Hands On (they come and handle the mess), Organizational Assessment (they tell you how to handle the mess), and Purchasing/Products (they tell you what would help organize your space).
As an added bonus, they also offer the service of taking your old but still functional things (clothes, office supplies, small electronics), donate them to charity, and give you the tax-deduction receipt.
Sounds like something you need before winter hits? Then check out their site New Order Professional Organizing...aside from their contact info, they also have great testimonials and before and after pics of their recent work.
