The Home Edit: A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals Reviews

    This home organization book is inspiring, educational, and beautiful. I appreciated that the book was all hands-on advice without any fluffy filler. It does a great job of showing a wide range of spaces. The huge, gorgeous celebrity owned spaced are balanced by tiny closets and makeshift pantries, and even the spaces that are unattainable for most of us use solutions that are practical for all sorts of homes. The photos are pretty. The personalities of the authors come through (I follow them on

    This home organization book is inspiring, educational, and beautiful. I appreciated that the book was all hands-on advice without any fluffy filler. It does a great job of showing a wide range of spaces. The huge, gorgeous celebrity owned spaced are balanced by tiny closets and makeshift pantries, and even the spaces that are unattainable for most of us use solutions that are practical for all sorts of homes. The photos are pretty. The personalities of the authors come through (I follow them on Instagram so I’m very familiar with their online presence) in a fun way without being distracting from the material.

    I am a big fan of Marie Kondo and think that this book is a perfect companion/follow up to the KonMari craze. The KonMari method is so great at helping people clean up and get rid of stuff they don’t need, teaching perfect folding and vertical storage tricks, and how to organize on a budget using recycled materials. And that’s a fine place to stop. But if you want to go a step further than that and end up with organized spaces that are gorgeous and swoon worthy (and maybe more friendly to American homes) The Home Edit is where it’s at. I am a huge fan of their ROYGBIV method and love all the pretty containers they use.

    Two things I wish had been in the book- what pens they use to label different containers so I can do it myself without the writing coming off (been there done that) and their tips for storing blow dryers, hair straighteners and the like.

    If you like organization or want to like organization I highly recommend this book! I did sit down and read it cover to cover but before I was finished I had already rearranged my coat closet and am now aching for a trip to the Container Store!

    I started out reading this ebook on my Kindle, and I had to switch to my phone because my Kindle is in black and white. I’d highly suggest this be read in actual book form though since half of the information comes from colorful, detailed pictures and, without that, this book wouldn’t be much. I would’ve given this 4 stars, but it was just so practical and to the point that I bumped it up a star. I love that. I think this could help anyone and it’s not too overwhelming.

    "1. Is there a tiny piece of my brain that feels calmer while things have a "place"? 2. Is there something in my mind that flicks on when I see something really organized? 3. Do I believe organizing my belongings will make my life easier?"

If you said yes to any of the above questions, you are a good candidate for organizing according to Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, and you should immediately grab their book.

    The Home Edit, or THE, is a business that organizes homes. They include two fun and colorful business partners who will be the first to admit that sometimes they aren't great at having organized lives, but they are great at organizing homes. This book takes you through their process of creating beautiful and functional spaces. It includes colorful photos to show you how they went about organizing each space. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It definitely felt like organizing is achievable for anyone. While I am currently not organizing my home at the moment due to moving in just a couple of months, I am starting the first and most important step of the system, the edit. I was so thankful that Clea and Joanna discussed "The Edit" because sometimes in life, your space just needs to be cleaned out of the things you don't like or use before it can become organized. I often feel like this step is skipped because it can be an emotional part of organizing. In addition, I loved knowing how they made spaces look bigger and of course color coordinated. The only thing that I am slow to get on board with is labeling everything. I often find that things that enter my pantry change frequently because I like trying to cook new meals and baked goods so labeling very specific categories would be difficult for me. However, they do encourage broad labeling categories too. I'm excited to move into my new space in a couple of months and put some of their ideas to the test! I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to begin organizing or get inspired to keep everything organized. As someone who appreciates a clean, organized space, I definitely loved this book.

    This is by far the BEST organizing book I have ever read. I am a pretty organized person and yet found so many great ideas from the photos in this book. They show lots of different spaces and ways to work with the room you have, and it’s really helpful. I can’t wait to start on my closet and pantry.

  • Katie Nelson

    These are my people! I love organization and it was a delight to read about it from self-proclaimed “organization nerds”. Love the simple approach, good ideas, and pretty pictures. I do wish it was a bit longer and went into a little more depth about the projects.

    is a “how-to” home organization guide by Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin of The Home Edit (THE). The tone of the book is casual and relatable, with humor injected throughout. The format of the book is organized by overall editing process, followed by advice for each specific area in the home. The book is filled with pretty pictures and lots of expert tips (

    ).

    The quick & dirty THE process is:

    1) Take everything out (of the space you’re organizing - and we mean everything).

    2) Create groupings (by placing like items together so you can see what you’re dealing with).

    3) Pare down (your belongings, getting rid of anything you no longer use or just don’t like).

    I’ve been a fan of THE and followed Clea and Joanna on Instagram for a few years now. They’re funny, down to earth, and realize we don’t all live in the sprawling estates of some of their high-end clients. However, we can all benefit from cleaning out and thoroughly organizing the spaces we inhabit daily. Function, aesthetics, and peace of mind are paramount.

    I am and always have been a very organized person - I’m a firm believer that there is a proper place for everything and I like coming home to a consistently clean, organized space. That said, it’s always nice to review ideas and see a different perspective.

    I recommend

    for anyone seeking a little inspiration for DIY home organization projects, which can be tackled one space at a time, and revisited as needed.

    I loved, loved, loved the photos in this book. I don't think there is anything ground-breaking about the tidy and declutter ideas. Also some of those fridge layouts just don't make sense - people who actually live in and use their home and appliances don't have fridges that clean, or consume that much yogurt.

    I think the basic principals to a tidy home are pretty straight forward and there is no one-perfect method to achieving that. A home that looks staged for a showing is beautiful, but it's a

    I think the basic principals to a tidy home are pretty straight forward and there is no one-perfect method to achieving that. A home that looks staged for a showing is beautiful, but it's also not practical. I liked the use of boxes in this book, and making use of all the space you have.

    Lots of pretty pictures but not a lot of practical help. And the micro-organizing of everything makes my head hurt.

    Total waste of time. Glad I did not waste money buying it! Lots of glossy photos including Gwyneth Paltrow's playroom, and organizing "advice" for those with too much money and too much time on their hands. All cutesy baskets and things like glass jars you supposedly put pasta in instead of leaving it in the boxes or bags it comes in. Sure it all looks great on Pinterest but real people don't live that way. Save your money and do not buy. Even if you see it at the library as I did, save your tim

Sure it all looks great on Pinterest but real people don't live that way. Save your money and do not buy. Even if you see it at the library as I did, save your time and leave it on the library shelf! Read a good book or play with your kiddos instead. These two gals got lucky and someone decided they should get a book deal. One of their "hints" is to display dog biscuits in a glass canister on laundry room counter. Yeah, that's real life. Not.

    Oh my gosh, thank goodness I got this from the library and didn't waste money on this. No one, and I mean no one lives like this.

    When was the last time you sorted your kids toys....ALL the toys by COLOR? yeah, right...never. My personal favorite laugh is a rectangular basket under the hall table, it's divided into 3 sections and each section is for 1 child's backpack. HA! when was the last time (or even the first time) a backpack fit into a 4 inch slot. Yeah, never.

    It's lots of cutesy bins and plastic containers. What happened to the reuse and repurpose craze that showed your genius idea for keeping something out of a landfill? That's how we live in my household.

    I don't go out and buy a massive amount of plastic containers. Nope.

    I was hoping this was going to give some fresh ideas, but it's just a picture book of rainbow colored items organized for the photo. Not for real life.
