Get Organised: New Netflix show takes tidying to the extreme

20 September 2020

Neat freaks – rejoice, for there has never been a better time to be stuck within the confines of your home.

Netflix’s latest home makeover obsession, Get Organised with The Home Edit, is Marie Kondo meets Queer Eye and it’s here to revolutionise your home/office/prison.

Basically, if colour-co-ordinated wardrobes and rainbow bookshelves get your juices going, you’ve come to the right place.

We’ve done Tiger King, sourdough and a number of well meaning but useless social media challenges, so the series is right on time to be the next 2020 trend.

The series is based on hosts Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin’s popular Instagram lovechild, The Home Edit, which has amassed more than three million followers and has spawned a book and merchandise line.

For a reasonable (read: totally overpriced) $250, the Home Edit gurus will come to your home, throw out most of your belongings and work their colour-coding magic so you too can look like you have your life together.

What a bargain.

Organising the homes of the rich and famous, as well as everyday people, Joanna and Clea also give the rest of us tips to keep our places neat and tidy.

Like Kondo before them, the golden rule here is to bin as much as possible and work with what’s left.

A-listers like Reese Witherspoon, Khloe Kardashian and Eva Longoria make appearances, leading viewers to wonder how we are expected to live clutter-free lifestyles if someone like Witherspoon can’t manage it?

The oversized mansions and pantries the size of our bedrooms may seem unrelatable at first, but in an effort to impart some real wisdom on viewers, the hosts branch out of Hollywood.

The second half of each episode caters to well-deserving everyday people, who can’t afford to dedicate a whole room to their shoe collection, and this is where you’re likely to find the most useful information.

And although there is something soothing and satisfying about watching extreme organisation and decluttering missions, there is one aspect of the series that has fans incensed.

To rainbow, or not to rainbow …

Viewers have taken to social media to express outrage about a favoured design hack the hosts promote to their lucky participants.

Although compulsive cleaners and those suffering a touch of OCD drool over the colour-coded pantry and wardrobe, it seems Joanna and Clea have crossed a line when it comes to colour-coded bookshelves.

Critics are outraged the show praises organising books by colour over the age-old, librarian favourite, the Dewey decimal system.

The tip has been branded time-consuming, impractical and confusing.

According to some fans, the rainbow technique is the mark of psychopathy.

Others condemned rainbow organisers for their colourful but heinous crimes.

They Call me Shuffles

    A diagnosis with Parkinson's changes a lot of things: Motor function, non-motor functions, but maybe even more powerful is the changes in social interactions. I personally don't mind being called "Shuffles" now, I did at first (8 or so years ago I think), I...
