When thinking about home organization,
you might be familiar with the phrases
“sparking joy” and the “KonMari method”.
both of which were coined by Marie Kondo when
she was introduced to the American audience in 2014.
As Americans became obsessed with Marie Kondo-ing
their dressers with specific folding techniques.
the women behind The Home Edit, Clea Shearer
and Joanna Teplin, were secretly disrupting
the drawer-organizing scene with some of
the most aesthetically pleasing pantry,
fridge and closet masterpieces.
The two have since been known for
emphasizing a more “stylized aesthetic”.
By implementing a labeling system, using
clear organizers and sorting by color.
the Home Edit has re-invented traditional
organizing with the goal of merging organization
with design and interior styling.
With a Reese Witherspoon-produced series
called “Master the Mess” that debuted in 2018,
an organizing book that published in 2019
and another book coming this September.
The Home Edit is filling our lives with
organized bliss. The pair is even expected
to get their own Netflix series soon.
Speaking exclusively with In The Know, Shearer
and Teplin shared some of their favorite organizing
hacks, along with some of their favorite (and
affordable) products to help get you started.
“one of our tried-and-true tips is to label, label,
label. It’s one of the best ways to get organized
and helps with grouping like items together” .
“That way, you know where everything is, so you’re
not stuck searching for an item when you need it”.
“we love Command Brand. Whether it’s hanging
up brooms and mops in the pantry with the
Command Broom Gripper or jackets and purses
in the office with the Command Large Double
Hook, there’s a product for every room”.
“Forgotten areas like under the sink are a hidden
gem for organization. Lift items like spray bottles
off the floor and store them on the inside of the
cabinet using the Command Spray Bottle Hanger”.
“Turntables are great. They keep products
easily accessible and in sight in some of the
smallest areas, like under a cabinet”
