It can be a tough job, but you'll save money doing it yourself. Just make a master list and tackle each job as it comes up on your list.
First off, get rid of at least 20% of everything you have in every area. The stuff people hang onto that they don't use anyway is such a ball and chain. The only thing anyone needs to store is tools, seasonal decorations and seasonal clothes. Maybe even a few kid items to pass to future kids. Other than that, you are just cluttering up your life with stuff you don't need or you would actually be using it.
Once you do that, the master list of the rest of your chores will be easier to make.
