Organize - why you should.

Excellent show that focuses on cleanliness, organization, working together, leadership, caring for others by setting a good example. The host and creator of her company, Amanda LeBlanc, has an endearing real life story of triumph over tragedy, love for others, faith, making the world a better place through one family at a time. She doesn't allow drama while working for others.

Families who love before and after reveals, home improvement shows, and mild drama will enjoy watching THE AMANDAS. The show, which centers on professional organizer Amanda LeBlanc and her team, known collectively as the Amandas, finds most of its drama in the dynamic between the clashing personalities on the team. Rarely do any of the women get rude or angry -- these are proper Alabama ladies, after all -- so when tempers do flare, it's an occasion.

There are some genuinely excellent organizing tips to pick up along the way, so home improvement enthusiasts may want to add this show to their DVR list. Overall, it's very watchable, though some of the gender stereotyping may irritate parents. Amanda LeBlanc's insistence that politics, religion, and sex are taboo topics, and that heels and a mini-skirt on a job site are the only proper way to dress oneself, make for some good teaching moments for families watching the show with their kids.
