The Busy Torontonian's Survival Guide: They’ll simplify the messiest household
The declutterer

The first step toward solving a clutter problem is to admit it. The second step
is to call Tina Blazer of Spot On ­Organizing. She walks homeowners through their unruly piles of junk and helps them decide what to keep and what to toss. Then she delivers the castoffs
to the Sally Ann or the dump. To ensure the problem doesn’t persist, Blazer will accompany a recovering pack rat on a shopping trip to pick out storage bins. From $80 an hour. 416-997-0730.


The online auction expert

There are more than 100 million eBay users who might just want that unused elliptical gathering dust in your basement. But using the site to clear out your unwanted stuff can become a serious time suck. Treehouse Auctions employs its eBay account and decade of glowing buyer reviews (the best way to attract and assure interested shoppers) to help liquidate almost anything at a premium. ­Pickup, drop-off and professional photography are also available. 35 per cent
of the final sale price. 647-436-9553.


The downsizer

Condensing a lifetime of family possessions into a smaller home can feel like pushing an elephant through a keyhole. After a get-to-know-you consultation, Vicky Riley Keyes of Red Coats Moving Solutions does a room-by-room analysis of what’s needed for a comfortable life in your new place. Then she creates a detailed floor plan to figure out where everything will go, helps organize the move and takes care of the storage or sale of anything extraneous. From $55 an hour. 416-920-1317.
