You've watched every episode of Tidying Up with Marie Kondo back to back, applied the 'spark joy' test to all of your worldly possessions and still your home is in desperate need of an organisational bootcamp. Sounds like it might be time to call in the experts.

Luckily for any disorderly folk out there, IKEA is here to lend a helping hand. The Swedish furniture and homewares giant has assembled a team of tidying wizards to help whip 100 lucky Aussie homes into shape. It's currently taking submissions from locals desperate for a spruce-up and will choose 100 of them to each win a two-hour home organisation session.

Winners will be guided through an organisational masterclass by one of Ikea's experts and even score themselves a $300 swag of new Ikea smart storage products to help keep everything in tip-top shape. We're expecting you'll pick up some ninja-level tidying skills to make even Marie Kondo proud.

To enter this comp, you need to live within 20 kilometres of an IKEA store and to submit a photo of your messy pantry, bathroom or bedroom (and some words about why it frustrates you) over here.

In another nod to Japan's organising queen, IKEA is holding a separate competition open to anyone named Mary who lives in a condo (or apartment). One of the lucky applicants will win a year's worth of tidying services, which involves a three-hour monthly home visit from an Ikea 'tidy professional'. Just imagine all the extra joy you'll spark by handing over decluttering duties to someone else.

Jump over here to submit your plea for a home tidying session before midnight on Wednesday, February 12. Enter IKEA's Mary search here before midnight on Tuesday, February 18.
