Too many stray Tupperware lids floating around in your kitchen drawer? Piles of paperwork accumulating on the table? You aren't alone, but you would probably be this woman's worst nightmare.

"Professional organiser" Alejandra Costello posts videos on YouTube of her immaculate home, with tips on everything from sorting your drawers to colour-coding your spray bottles.

The 31-year-old was once dubbed one of the five most organised people in America, and her how-to vids receive thousands of views from those of us who are challenged in the tidiness department.

Alejandra has been compared to Marie Kondo, the self-described "crazy tidying fanatic" who has published two books on cleaning and sparked interest worldwide over her perfectly folded clothes drawers.

While the strict processes would give many of us a headache, cleaning queen Alejandra says her "organisational systems" make her life more efficient and less stressful.
