The last time you watched Hoarders, you found your remote buried beneath a pile of dirty laundry and a pizza box (ah, the irony). You need a nontelevised intervention.
Let Los Angeles transplant Rulan Tova Weinberg clean up your act. The years she spent organizing her parents’ ever-growing antiques collection, law office files, and special effects data (for films like Avatar) gave her the ammo she needed to found OrganizedDesign, a company devoted to decluttering closets, bathrooms, garages, office spaces, and what she calls “bad drawers.”
Send her some photos of your mess (don’t be ashamed; she’s seen it all) and the easygoing — yet systematized — guru drops in with an arsenal of stackable plastic boxes, drawer organizers, and linen baskets and gets to work folding, rearranging, and advising (it’s a team effort), before hauling off the excess to a local charity.
Weinberg charges $75 an hour plus the cost of supplies. Which is a small price to pay for getting clean.
