Get Organized with The Home Edit

“Get Organized with The Home Edit” was released on Netflix on September 9, 2020 to help people all over organize their homes. The Home Edit is a company based out of Nashville, Tennessee and is run by Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin.  Clea and Joanna are professional organizers who go to people’s homes and organize parts of their house.  “Get Organized with The Home Edit” is a television show where Clea and Jonanna go to people’s homes and show how they organize different parts of the houses. Along the way they provide tips and tricks to help you keep you home as organized as possible.


A show by the name “Tidying up with Marie Kondo” was released about a year and a half ago on Netflix and may have viewers thinking the shows are similar.  However, they are not.  Marie Kondo helps shed the home of unused or unwanted items whereas The Home Edit takes the things you have and puts them into an aesthetic and organized display. 


In each episode of The Home Edit, you see one celebrity such as Khloe Kardashian and one everyday person get a room of their house organized.  It is very diverting to watch the celebrities get their houses organized but watching the everyday people is much more helpful if you are trying to organize a part of your house. They organized many different rooms including kitchens bedrooms and even a children’s play room.  They have a system of organizing that they apply to everything they do.  They begin with a step they call “Edit.” 


Additionally, many of the things Clea and Joanna do to help organize each home just seem too far fetched for everyday lifestyle.  They encourage that you dump all of your food items like cereals and granola into clear plastic containers for an aesthetic effect.  This just doesn’t seem realistic to keep organized.  These systems of for all their mesmerizing crispness and satisfying right angles and color coordination, would seem to work only if one places them at the center of one’s life and for many of us, it is not.  Most people simply want a clean and organized household but The Home Edit has led many people to try and achieve this perfect looking pantry when really it is just not realistic.


Despite the unrealistic methods demonstrated by The Home Edit, the television show is still very entertaining and satisfying to watch.  Watching Reese Witherspoon and Khloe Kardashian get their closets and garages organized is very intriguing and many people have seemed to enjoy it.
