Ever noticed how after you buy a new car you then see the same car everywhere? Well, the same can be said about starting an organizing business. I expect to see organizing shows on HGTV or read about organizing in my Real Simple magazine, but lately organizing is all over the TV and in movies!
A few weeks ago on “The Big Bang Theory”, Sheldon was ecstatic to be able to organize Howard’s closet during a dinner party. One of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” had her closet organized, on “2 Broke Girls”, Max and Caroline took a second job organizing an elderly couple’s apartment, Frankie’s sister (played by Molly Shannon) moved in on “The Middle” to help her family get organized while she was studying for exams. All of the talk show hosts’ homes have been professionally organized including Oprah, Rachel Ray and Katie Couric.
The biggest surprise to me was while watching a movie from 1976 last week. It was the first time I have ever seen this very famous Robert Di Niro movie. If you thought getting organized was a new fad, the scene from 1976 “Taxi Driver” proves it is not: Travis Bickle: I should get one of those signs that says “One of these days I’m gonna get organezized”. De Niro and Cybill Shepherd discuss his need to get his life organized and then he buys a sign and hangs it in his home to help motivate him.
If you are thinking it’s time to get organized, you are in the majority and now you know you are part of a movement that’s been popular for decades, even among the stars and elite in Hollywood.
