‘Master the Mess’

Master the Mess is from Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon’s production company, Hello Sunshine. It follows professional organizers Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, who run The Home Edit in Nashville, Tenn., according to Southern Living. Best of all, the duo makes organizing look fun.

‘Clean House’

Watch on: Hulu Live TV

Fans of the long-defunct Style Network may remember, Clean House, hosted by actress and comedian, Niecy Nash. The program that ran for 10 seasons helped families declutter their homes.

After going through all of their belongings, the family — with the help of the show’s experts — would put together a yard sale to raise money for organizing their home and redecorating. Whatever money had been made at the yard sale, the show would match.

Just like many home renovation shows today, Clean House ended with a big reveal when Nash would give the family a tour of their newly organized and spruced up home. 

Watch Clean House on Hulu Live TV or on NBC’s website with an NBCUniversal profile.

‘Bea Organized’

Watch on: Amazon Prime Video 

Follow writer, director, and personal organizer, Beatrice Copeland, in Bea Organized, a series where Copeland tackles common household organizational issues. Season 1 premiered in 2018 and has nearly a five-star rating. 

After watching all 10 episodes — they’re super short but still helpful — check out more organizational tips from Copeland on her YouTube series from Refinery29. This show is particularly great for discovering solutions to specific organizational problems.

No list on organizing would be complete without Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Kondo, the author of the best-selling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, got her own series on Netflix. In a genius move, the streaming service debuted the show on New Year’s Day in 2019.

In the eight-episode series, Kondo teaches her clients how to make their lives more stress-free thanks to her KonMari method that results in an organized home filled with items that spark joy.
