The Home Edit Season 1 brings us the best tidy home tips- merging neatness with functionality to give its viewers beautifully balanced homes. Season 1 highlights some of our favorite celebrities combined with everyday heroes, and I’m hoping for nothing less in season 2. Besides Organizers Clea and Joanna’s fun, quirky personalities joining forces to Master the Mess of their clients, their beautiful signature rainbow method remains one of my favorite organizing design hacks.
Do yourself a favor and rush over to Netflix to binge this series if you haven’t had a chance to already. And if you watched it too quickly and missed the practical knowledge while enjoying the banter and being in awe of their celeb friends, I’ve got you covered with some highlights before The Home Edit Season 2 premieres.

What is The Home Edit?
Operating as a professional Organizing business, The Company takes you behind-the-scenes of the home organizing process in their Netflix show Getting Organized. “Help(ing) celebrities and everyday clients edit, categorize and contain their clutter to create functional and beautiful spaces” is the company’s motto, and founders Clea and Joanna seem to do it with such ease.
What are the benefits of watching The Home Edit Season 2 on netflix?
- If you weren’t a fan of rainbows before, you would be now
- Prepare to beimmediately inspired to get your home in tip-top shape and go from clutter to create
- If you use your credit card to reorganize, you could earn lots of points or cashback (this is not a recommendation/use at your own risk)
- You may create a system that completely changes your home for the better…it’s possible
cons of watching The Home Edit?
- Organizing can be overwhelming. The show is a snippet into a complete process. It’s important to understand that before allowing the inspiration to take over.
- Good quality, storage containers aren’t cheap. There are affordable options, but multiple storage containers add up pretty quickly- No matter how you slice it.
- Measuring matters. It’s not always clear because they’re professionals. Also because….it’s tv. But, the planning phase is very important. Planning well can save you a lot of time and money.
- Half the fun here at OFF, THE RECORD Mom, is creating ways to Get Organized while making memories with our kids. Because getting organized with Clea and Joanna is a business, the kids are not in the mix. Homes are being decluttered without children asking to “help”. This is not most of our realities. This is not our job, we have kids lurking. Including kids mean being more careful with supplies, explaining and repeating yourself several times, and possibly a much longer process.
To ease the overwhelm, use this Home Edit-inspired rainbow decluttering chart. This is an easy tip to get the kids involved and keep them occupied. Now, declutter!
Why is Get organized by The Home Edit show so popular with millennials?
The Netflix show is a hit with millennials. It’s a show that speaks to the young, hip, and creative demographic. The show has been touted as an “inspiration” by viewers. It’s minimalized beauty. We can live the life we want with minimal money and time commitment. It also features people living out their passions in unique ways. A millennials number one goal. What can I say? This generation has big dreams. Convenience and the desire to Get Organized are both aspiring and attainable for young visionaries.
I’m here for it!
Organizing tips from The Home Edit Season 1: Must read before you watch the Home Edit Season 2
1. Get Organized: The Home Edit Season 1 Episode 1
Reese Witherspoon and A Doctor’s Dream Closet
Before we binge The Home Edit season 2, let’s refresh with these quick tips from episode 1. First off, Reese Witherspoon is full of all of the amazingness that I believe her to be. Yes, ten minutes of another television show proves that! Also, celebrities and everyday clients have many of the same frustrations with their space, only on bigger/smaller levels. But, here are the tips that stood out.
- Adjust shelves to maximize closet space
- Display boots upright by filling with Shapers
- Contain- using organizing trays and other storage containers or shelving
- Acrylic Purse hooks to display purses and keep the shape
- Matching hangers make everything look extra polished
- Donut scarf (scarf buns)
2. Get Organized: Episode 2
Rachel Zoe and a Multipurpose Garage
In episode 2, Joanna Teplin and Clea Shearer are the official GOATS in episode 2 as they revamp “The” Rachel Zoe’s closet- touch-up season. As a former designer, I was distracted by Zoe’s fashion collection. However, the organizing enthusiast was awe-struck by the hosts’ ability to edit, categorize, and contain their clutter on such large-scale projects- true skills. These tips made it all possible.
- You have to give your organizing system a little bit of maintenance every so often to keep it up.
- Edit, Categorize, Contain, Maintain
- Dry cleaner’s plastic wrap can cause mold moisture and trap bugs…let them breathe.
- Hang clothes in the order of the weight of the garments
- Dedicate a zone for “To-Do” projects to contain the supplies
- Increase Storage options where there’s lots of stuff
3. Get Organized: S:1 E:3
Khloe Kardashian and a Bedroom Overhaul
- Matching bins
- Consistent zones
- Have a designated place for “merch zones” if you collect a lot of product
- It’s not just about making room; it’s how the categories work together
- Store your jewelry properly, so it doesn’t end up in a tangled mess
- Store handbags at eye level for easy grab and go
- Can organize shoes by size, color, and height
- Use your nightstand to store things you really want to have when going to bed (a book, chapstick, remote control, phone charger, etc.)
4. Get Organized: Season 1 Episode 4
Eva Longoria and a Kitchen for Five
- No one is too young to learn how to get organized
- Zones for daily rituals should be easily accessible
- A household place like a kitchen should account for each family member’s needs
- One of the main purposes of the product is to hold people accountable not to exceed that specific allotment
- Concealed baskets versus clear bins are preference choices
5. Get Organized: Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin Season 1 Episode 5
Retta and a Converted Office
- Stations create dedicated spaces for a specific task

6. Get Organized: Season 1 Episode 6
Neil Patrick Harris and a Brooklyn Kitchen
- For a playroom to be a multifunctional room, you have to zone it out.
- You don’t have to categorize every category. You can have general categories like “building” for all of the different types of blocks.
- Think about the prime real estate in any area and find a way to make it shine (countertops, kitchen island, etc.)
- If you don’t use bins as drawer storage in cabinets, they tend to become a graveyard because you stuff things in the back and never dig back there to find them
7. Get Organized: The Home Edit S: 1 E: 7
Jordana Brewster and a Youth Center
Joanna and Jordana seem like a match made in heaven. In this episode, Clea Shearer and Joanna create a few genius systems for Jordana’s pantry as her nephew struggle with allergies. If you haven’t seen this on Netflix, it’s a must-watch. But for now, here are some of the highlights.
- Use large drawer inserts when fridge bins don’t fit
- Tape nutritional info onto bins to keep it handy when relocating items from boxes
- Put kid’s snacks on lower shelves to keep them accessible
- Create a backstock bin/station to hold extra food
- You want durable storage containers for long term solutions
- When organizing kids spaces, have the most used items at eye level
8. Get Organized: Season 1 Episode 8
Kane Brown and Two Siblings Shared Bedroom
- For combined rooms, section out the spaces so each person knows what their portion is. This is the best option to hold one another accountable to put things away.
- Create genera dinner bins to not get too fussy over individual items
- Map out your space before making any changes
- Put the things you use most often closet to the entrance for easy access
Now that all the tea has been spilled let’s look into the future with Season 3
The Home Edit Season 3 casting applications
The Home Edit Season 2 release date is April 1st on Netflix. That’s just a few short weeks away. More high-profile guests (Drew Barrymore, Kevin Hart, Winnie Harlow, and more) gained peace in their clutter-free surroundings. But season 3 is still a mystery.
Because there are no guarantees for a season 3, there are no casting applications currently available. However, news recently broke that Reese Witherspoon’s media company acquired a fun-loving, organizing brand. No one knows what that means for a future release date or even for the hosts Clea and Joanna, but we’re excited for what’s to come.
Fingers crossed, there will be more videos to premiere. Applications were being accepted here for The Home Edit Season 2. Trying to apply there may be a good start.
