Recent Review: This is not for the faint of heart. First, it is very expensive, and it does not cover everything -- trash hauling was $1,000 extra, and they do not clean or dust, so that had to be done as well. I got 100 hours of service for what I paid, and that did not include the kitchen, but did include almost everything else plus the garage. I am not really a hoarder, but the house had been occupied by my family for 70 years and there was quite a lot of multigenerational junk with emotional baggage, and as I age and my knees fail, I just lost the ability to keep on top of it all. I understand that I fit a niche -- one magazine called my type of hoarder "a woman of a certain age who has suffered loss and finds herself the keeper of the family history." I cringe, but I'm glad someone has made a business of the likes of me and knows how to help. First, the supervisor of Major Mom inspects the house, then makes a plan. Before you know it (the same day you sign the contract!) your house if full of half a dozen people who move just about everything to a staging area (in my case, the garage), and move furniture from room to room. They then spent the next two weeks, an afternoon or a Saturday at a time, making me sort through all the boxes and closets in place and designate everything either trash, donate or keep and reintegrate into the house. The Major Mom women (they are all women) are very energetic and you will definitely get your money's worth of carrying and moving things around. They helped me hire young men to haul the trash and move the very heavy furniture, and they took my donations (dozens and dozens of bags) to charity, plus they arranged with Craigs list to be rid of a few more things. They are patient and professional and evidently trained to deal with the inevitable meltdowns -- I took it poorly when they rearranged my office, for example. They are sometimes a little bullying, and though you are consulted on the broad strokes, they do not consult on about 70% of the organizing and just go ahead an do it -- sometimes that is great (my craft storage area is just gorgeous, and I would not have thought of it), and sometimes it is deeply distressing (I have since moved my office back the way it was, sans the clutter -- I had it set up that way because it worked!) There were so many people working at once it was hard for me to keep track of who was doing what -- it would surely be less overwhelming if you opted for a smaller service package at a time. They do make an effort not to toss things out without permission, but I found minor things in the trash (shoe insoles, for example) that I really preferred to keep. Plus, they move so fast, and it is all so overwhelming, that I "agreed" to toss things because it was just easier, only later to realize something was gone. This is a good thing, if you have a serious clutter problem (you can replace almost everything tossed if you really need it), but it can be disconcerting. They make you go through everything -- all the backs of drawers of memorabilia and junk and dirt. This, too, is a good thing (there were cupboards I seriously would have died without looking in because they were dirty and I didn't want anything in there). On the other hand, especially with a family home like mine, there are a lot of memories dragged out and rummaged through, and this, too, is exhausting. Some of the women specialized -- because I have many books, I got a young girl who specialized in libraries. They label everything, and they have odd (to me) priorities, like spending expensive time folding laundry, but they are open to requests to reprioritize. Everyone was very personable and listened to me, and I was happy not only for their help but for their company as I walked down memory lane. It will take me weeks to figure out where everything ended up, but my house is now clean and airy and free of literally trucks full of junk. I am pleased, and my knees are recovering. But, as I said, the biggest package of 100 hours is not for the faint of heart and some may want to clean up a single room or closet at a time. In any case, I am glad I hired Major Mom, and think of it as a once in a lifetime exercise that, though painful, had to be done and makes my life much better. They will come back, for additional fees, of course, to help you maintain the nice organization. I'm not ready for that, but I'll keep in in mind.
