It's been tied to everything from higher cortisol levels to overeating: clutter.

If clutter is your foe and negatively impacting your living space, help could be on the way. Homestyle is teaming up with the Michigan chapter of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals for a contest that could seriously help tame the chaos in one room of your house.

From now through noon on Nov. 15, readers can enter our Messiest Room contest. Organizing professionals will come to your home and declutter one room until it's in functioning order. They'll give it a fresh, organized look and also likely offer some great tips for getting the rest of your home in order.

There are a few rules: no garages, basements or out-buildings will be considered. The room also must be safe and dry.

To enter your room, go to and fill out a brief application.

The winner will be announced Dec. 7 and the transformation will happen in January.
