Let’s face it, we can all use a little organization in our lives. Even celebrities. That’s where Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin come in. The duo is the new hosts of Get Organized with The Home Edit, a new show that hit Netflix on September 9. According to People, Teplin and Shearer visit celebrity homes and help them to get organized.

What’s up with ‘Get Organized with The Home Edit’?

With COVID-19, getting our lives organized has become sort of a trend. It’s easier to ignore the mess when you aren’t actually around that much because you’re at work or out with friends and family. Now that we’re at home, it might seem like the mess is staring you right in the face. 

That’s where Get Organized with The Home Edit comes in. Teplin and Shearer visit the homes of the rich and famous, as well as everyday folks who just need a little help, and start organizing. 

Some of the tactics that have made the pair famous include rainbow ordering that would make Rainbow Bright proud, overzealous use of clear plastic bins, and beautiful hand-lettered labels. 

There are plenty of celebrities who are guests on the show, such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Kacey Musgraves, and Dan Levy. Other celebrities include Rachel Zoe, Khloé Kardashian, Eva Longoria, Marietta “Retta” Sirleaf, Jordana Brewster, Neil Patrick Harris, and David Burtka, and Kane and Katelyn Brown.

Reese Witherspoon, who has spent the majority of her adult life acting, has decided to branch out into producing with this show. She also has Teplin and Shearer come organize her closet. Hopefully it doesn’t look anything remotely like her most famous character Elle Wood’s closet from Legally Blonde. If it had, then Teplin and Shearer might have never found their way out.

What’s the inspiration for the show?

Like many celebrities to score a TV show, Teplin and Shearer had already garnered some fame before they came to the attention of Reese Witherspoon and Netflix. The two became friends after texting, and soon after business partners.

Together, they founded The Home Edit. According to their website: “The goal in starting The Home Edit was to reinvent traditional organizing, and merge it with design and interior styling. While every project is rooted in functional systems that can be maintained for the long term, there is just as much emphasis placed on transforming the space visually and adding their signature stylized aesthetic.”

They’ve also written two books. THE Home Edit: A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals is currently available for purchase anywhere books are sold. Their next book THE Home Edit Life: The No-Guilt Guide to Owning What You Want and Organizing Everything will be released September 15.

If you’re looking for organizational inspiration, and can’t wait until September 9 for Get Organized with The Home Edit to hit Netflix, there are plenty of other shows to get those creative juices flowing. They might not be as celebrity driven as Get Organized with The Home Edit, but you’ll still get plenty of great tips.

Tidying Up With Marie Kondo is one. Marie Kondo is a Japanese sensation who started her own home organizing business at the tender age of 19. Her approach is distinctly different from Teplin and Shearer, as she doesn’t propose you buy a ton of clear plastic boxes to contain and organize all your clutter. Instead, Konda recommends you decide what really ‘sparks joy’ for you, then get rid of anything that doesn’t.

Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things follows a similar theme to Kondo’s but takes it a step further. Rather than a TV show, it’s a 78-minute documentary that teaches viewers about getting rid of what you don’t actually want.

If you want to get rid of a bunch of junk, but don’t want to just give it away, Clean House focuses on showing you how to get rid of stuff by holding a yard sale. It was hosted by comedian Niecy Nash. Not only would she help organize the home, but she would also match the family for any money they made from the yard sale.
