Where do I begin to organize my house?

If you need help or if this project is overwhelming, consider hiring a professional organizer instead. You can also read our guide on how to organize your home.

Why should I hire a professional organizer?

Here are a few reasons why you should hire a professional organizer for your home or office:

  • They have the skills and experience to organize your home.
  • They can teach you how to become a better organizer.
  • If you don’t have free time, they can organize your home quicker than you.

When they’re done organizing and decluttering your home, you may feel a sense of relief and less overwhelmed.

What is the fastest way to purge clutter?

The fastest way to purge clutter is to hire a junk removal service — especially if you have big or many items you need to get rid of. By hiring a junk removal company on Thumbtack, you can schedule a day and time for them to pick up all of your clutter.  

Are professional organizers worth it?

Hiring a professional organizer may be worth the cost if any of the following apply to you:

  • Your home or office is extremely cluttered and disorganized.
  • You don’t have the time to organize your home. 
  • You don’t know how to organize and need advice.

Ultimately, you need to compare the cost of hiring a professional with the potential benefits you'll enjoy after your home has been organized.

Reviews for New York personal organizers
Cara M.
I highly recommend Sharona. She is a wonderful organizer and really takes into account your own personal style and what will be manageable for you. Best of all, she is completely non-judgmental and a true professional. Highly recommended! Update: I had such a great experience with Sharona a few years ago that she was my first call after I found out I was moving. We spent a few sessions on a massive pre-move purge, then she was with me all day on moving day, then we did a couple of post-move organizing sessions. This most definitely was money well spent! Sharona is always terrific, but she really shined on moving day. She directed the movers, organized the closets beautifully (using things that I already had!), and somehow managed to organize my entire kitchen while I sat on the floor going through a box of papers. Having now worked with Sharona before a move, during a move, and after a move, I really can't recommend her enough!

I recently moved back to NYC for an intense, 24/7 position as an executive/personal assistant. After a tumultuous ~3 month search, all the while trying to adjust to the demands of this new job and dealing with a lot of turmoil in my personal life, I finally found the apartment of my dreams. Unfortunately, after moving in, I was living among unpacked boxes for over a month due to my lack of time and energy. I knew that I desperately needed the help and guidance of a professional organizer. I spoke with Sandy about the space, my concerns regarding the space/my belongings, and by the end of our conversation, my anxieties about my apartment had completely dispersed, I truly felt a great sense of relief. Sandy has an incredibly calming presence and she is someone who has mastered the art of hearing and LISTENING. Sandy reassured me that we were going to create my most ideal space AND we were going to have fun doing it!! I cannot speak highly enough of Sandy and would recommend Dear Mess to ANYONE in need of any space decluttering, wardrobe redesign, home organization, etc. Sandy's positive energy and passion for eco-conscious home organization is palpable and I guarantee you'll be overjoyed with her results!

Zoe really resonated with me. Her energy and enthusiasm were catching and moved us along in a rhythmic and easy way. Her skills in clearing out clutter are top-notch - she is able to persuasively articulate why to not keep items and how to approach organizing. Zoe was also quite responsive and flexible in listening to and taking my suggestions. She went the extra mile in taking on all tasks and even going beyond to vacuum my apt. Add to all this her personal warmth and easy manner and Zoe Snow is an exceptional professional. I have another appointment for us to continue de-cluttering and organizing and later on, I will employ her to advise me on interior decorating and design. Zoe is someone you really want to have in your life as a wonderful resource to open up a myriad of possibilities in managing your living space.
