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.
A masterclass and look book in one, The Home Edit is filled with bright photographs and 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.
PLEASE NOTE: The paperback includes a starter set of labels for your refrigerator; the ebook and audiobook include a link to download and print the labels from a computer (you will need 8-1/2 x 11-inch clear repositionable sticker project paper, such as Avery 4397).

Get Started With Your Own Set Of Labels
Labeling is key to The Home Edit system, and in the back of the book, you’ll find a sheet of beautifully inscribed labels for organizing items in your refrigerator. The clear stickers are removable so you can change up the storage whenever you want.
Organize By Example
Speaking of labeling, Clea and Joanna take you through their own process by detailing more than 150 spaces with their trade secrets. With bright images that feature almost every kind of space—small or large—including pantries, fridges, closets, bathrooms, bedrooms, playrooms, and under the stairs and sink, you’ll take away so many ideas for your own rooms.
