Publisher's Summary

There’s decorating, and then there’s organizing. From the Instagram-sensation home experts (with a serious fan club that includes Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Mindy Kaling), here is an accessible, room-by-room guide to establishing new order in your home.

Believe this: Every single space in your house has the potential to function efficiently and look great. The mishmash of summer and winter clothes in the closet? Yep. Even the dreaded junk drawer? Consider it done. And the best news: It’s not hard to do - in fact, it's a lot of fun. 

From the home organizers who made their orderly eye candy the method that everyone swears by comes Joanna and Clea’s signature approach to decluttering. The Home Edit walks you through paring down your belongings in every room, arranging them in a stunning and easy-to-find way (hello, labels!), and maintaining the system, so you don't need another do-over in six months. When you're done, you'll not only know exactly where to find things, but you'll also love the way it looks. 

The Home Edit is a masterclass filled with detailed tips, from placing plastic dishware in a drawer where little hands can reach to categorizing pantry items by color (there's nothing like a little ROYGBIV to soothe the soul). Above all, it's like having your best friends at your side to help you turn the chaos into calm. 

Includes a PDF with resources to help you stay inspired and T.H.E. fridge labels.

"In their forthcoming book [Clea and Joanna] are bringing their tried-and-true decluttering methods straight from their celeb clients' closets into your home, along with step-by-step tips to help even the most organizationally-challenged among us implement and maintain their aesthetically pleasing lifestyle hacks." (People.com)
 

"The Home Edit has grown a loyal celebrity and social media following thanks to a streamlined philosophy that’s often delivered with some hilarious punch lines. Their new book is a room-by-room guide to this philosophy." (ArchitecturalDigest.com

"In a nutshell, when the stars need help with a mess, they call The Home Edit. Not to worry, though, the ladies of the business have a book coming out that will give all their tips and tricks, so you can have a Hollywood-worthy pantry as well." (Realtor.com)

"If you ever see an incredibly organized pantry or enviably neat closet from your favorite celebrity on Instagram, it's probably the work of Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, co-founders of The Home Edit. These professional home organization experts live for color-coded shelves, matching baskets and labeled jars to help their A-list clients achieve organization nirvana." (Today.com)

A more in-depth look into the system

When I heard they came out with a book, and that it also happened to be an audiobook, I hopped right on it and started listening. The book is narrated by Clea and Joanna themselves which is a big plus for me. They also kept the book fun and interesting - being the great people they are in the show, I felt like I was sitting having a coffee with them while they talked about organizing / their book. I’ve watched the show on Netflix and do follow them on social media. But I found this book was so helpful because they went room by room, space by space, into specific details on how I can properly implement the system they preach - and not just try to make it look pretty. The critical piece to this puzzle is truly taking the time to understand how your own home functions and how to utilize the space you have and make it work FOR you. Planning is key. Certainly it’s fun to go shopping for containers but they do really teach you the steps prior to shopping so your space turns out right and it will maintain for years to come. I’m excited to dive into the freebies / PDFs of that are included with this audiobook. Thanks!! Make another book!!

Very hard to enjoy without pictures

I thought there was a link to pictures to go with the book. The link was a list of "resources" which is the blogs/Instagrams/stores they are promoting with the book. That's okay to include, but I was hoping for more. I had a hard time because the verbal-only descriptions were not very detailed so I couldn't really picture much of the work they were talking about. If you are a paper book buyer, this is probably a good purchase, especially if you like their signature look. Maybe skip the audio book version unless you are already a superfan.

Awful... just Awful

Not audiobook Material, author uses simple childish language, constantly references pictures instead of describing setting. I cannot believe I spent money on this. The audiobook sounds like a narrated Valley-Girl high school paper.

TLDR: Buy organizers, use labels, get Pinterest. I just saved you three hours of painful listening.

More Visual Than Audio

I was hoping for more tips and formulas maybe even more stories about organizing but it turns out it's just Instagram the book edition. If your exploring home organizing pick up this book at your library and skip the audio book.

I enjoyed the book and the audio overall as a passive action but half the book is them describing pictures and then reading their side notes. It becomes very predictable very quickly. I would have enjoyed them discussing how they reach conclusions and more about how to resolve the conflict that arises when you do organize an area. This book is also focused primarily on mothers, so understand that going in.

Buy the audio and the paperback!

I loved listening to clea and Joanna alongside looking at the beautiful pictures in the book! I also love that I have the paperback to reference whenever I’m organizing.

Buy the actually book too!

I love listening to audio books but for this one you almost have to have the actual book so you can see the pictures they are describing. So I bought it too!
