It’s prime spring cleaning season, and Marie Kondo isn’t the only one helping us to #sparkjoy. The Home Edit duo of Clea Shearrer and Joanna Teplin are like a funnier, less serious version of the famed reserved organizer (we still love you Marie, don’t worry). And their one million Instagram followers must agree—if you like photos of pantries organized by the colors of the rainbow and also enjoy quips about airlines who run out of Champagne in first class (it’s less pompous than it sounds, trust us) then you’ll enjoy both The Home Edit’s organizational skills and humor. Their new book, “The Home Edit: A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals” is already a New York Times Best Seller, and it takes you through their organizational ethos. It’s actually pretty simple:

Step 1: Pare down your belongings.

Step 2: Arrange your belongings in a “stunning” way by grouping them by color and/or category. Place items into attractive containers. Label these containers using beautiful handwriting.

Step 3: Reward yourself with a glass of Champagne and/or candy of choice. Maintain.

The Home Edit: A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals, $12.35 on Amazon

Read all about it (and get bonus refrigerator labels, which are included with the book)!

Pantries don’t have to be big to function and look beautiful. If you’re short on space, utilize baskets as much as possible, and keep your canister collection to just the basics. ✨ Products from this post are on THE shop page [thehomeedit.com/shop] // or shop via screenshot using the @liketoknow.it app // http://liketk.it/2AObG ✨ #thehomeedit #pantry #organization

For Your Pantry:

We’re starting off with the most important room in the house (where we keep the snacks). It turns out you only need a few simple products to completely transform your pantry—check out Gwyneth Paltrow’s pantry for a little inspo.

Once you’ve arranged your items into categories, place packaged items (granola bars, fruit snacks, chips, etc.) into open bins.

Most of the above products can be repurposed for other rooms in the house as well. For example, a lazy Susan/turntable is a great solution to store cleaning products or toiletries under the bathroom or kitchen sink. Storage baskets and accompanying labels can be utilized in every room—from a closet shelf to a playroom or mudroom.

For Your Refrigerator:

The fridge might be the most fun space to organize since there are ample opportunities to play with color and organize in ROYGBIV order (think colorful fruits and vegetables, juices, etc…) With a few simple products, you can help keep your fridge clean and organized so everyone can find what they’re looking for (and enjoy looking for it).

Putting water and juices into pretty glass pitchers instead of keeping them in packaging helps maintain a streamlined look.

Bathroom Organization Options:

For Your Closet:

We don’t all have giant walk-in closets that you could do a cartwheel in (although this is something we frequently dream about), but there are ways to maximize the space you do have.

We LOVE shoes (who doesn’t) but never seem to have enough room to store all of them without piling them into a corner on the closet floor. Instead of doing that, place shoes into clear plastic containers with snap-on lids. This will keep your shoes dust-free and will allow for quick visual inventory since you can see what’s in the container without having to open it.

Shoe Box Cases, $7.95-$31.80 at The Container Store (originally $9.95-$39.80)

Another great way to store shoes is to create additional storage space with an over-the-door organizer. This is also good for sunglasses, small bags, and scarves.

Have more respect for your clothing than hanging it on those cheap wire hangers from the drycleaners. Upgrade to beautiful velvet hangers—they’ll hold anything (no more slippage) and help your clothing retain its shape.

For Your Bathroom:

The bathroom can be a difficult place to organize due to all of the tiny items in this space (bottles of face serums and nail polishes, bobby pins, eyeshadows, etc…) Luckily, The Home Edit has some great tips for keeping this space chaos-free.

Arrange all of those small products neatly in a clear drawer organizer. As a bonus, this will keep products from leaking onto the actual drawer in case of a spill.
