Place to Sell Your Old Clothes

Cynthia’s Consignments

Now’s your chance to ditch that Alexander McQueen body-con dress with questionable cutouts: Cynthia’s will sell on commission almost any used designer item that’s less than two years old and pay you about 17 percent of the original retail price. 2218 N. Clybourn Ave., cynthiasconsignments.com

Closet Organizer

Closet Works

Local interior designers sing the praises of this company, which offers free in-home consultations and specializes in maximizing awkward spaces—not just closets, but also laundry rooms, mudrooms, and other areas where chaos tends to reign. Specialists will execute custom solutions, or you can tour the showroom to see premade designs. 2112 N. Clybourn Ave., closetworks.com

Home Organizing Expert

Amy Trager

Consider this certified professional organizer your personal Marie Kondo. Trager even appeared in an episode of TLC’s Hoarding: Buried Alive, so your junk drawer would have to be really, really bad to make her flinch. From $55 an hour. amytrager.com

Deep-Cleaning Service

King of Maids

Booking King of Maids is like hitting rewind on a month of slovenliness. The deep-cleaning option (from $141) is designed for homes that haven’t been tidied in more than 30 days. (The cleaners will even purge your fridge.) kingofmaids.com
