Authors Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin excel at organization, but they also enjoy doing it with style. Whether it's adding labels to containers or sensibly (and artfully) arranging items in the fridge, anyone can feel great because, in the end, organization is the path to getting rid of stuff. Now, in their new book, they will challenge you to apply the same principles to other aspects of your life so you can take control without the stress. It's a book that works well as a gift and certainly when the new year comes around—a perfect book to start the year right.
At home or on the go, you don't have to live like a minimalist to feel happy and calm. The Home Edit mentality is all about embracing your life—whether you’re a busy mom, a roommate living with three, or someone who’s always traveling for work. You just need to know how to set up a system that works for you.
In the next phase of the home organizing craze, Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin go beyond the pantry and bookshelf to show you how to contain the chaos in all aspects of your life, from office space and holiday storage to luggage and pet supplies. Get to know your organizing style, tailor it to your family’s lifestyle, and lead the low-guilt life as you apply more genius ideas to every aspect of your life.
Clea and Joanna are here to remind you that “it’s okay to own things” in the quest for pretty and smart spaces. With The Home Edit Life, you’ll soon be corralling phone cords, archiving old photos, arranging your phone apps by color, and packing your suitcase like a pro.

About the Author
Read an Excerpt
This book is for both those who love to organize in their free time and those who want to get organized but feel they just can’t make the time. It’s for the moms who are sick of looking at sippy cups in their cabinets and wish there was more room for champagne glasses. It’s for those of us who go to work, sit at our desks, and continue to wonder how we always end up with so many pens that rarely have ink. It’s for the craft lovers, the beauty product enthusiasts, and the jet-set travelers.
Basically, this book is for everyone. We wanted to create a book that shows you how to live the life you love without feeling bad about the things you own. We wanted to show you that being organized isn’t limited to pantries, closets, and other rooms in your house. It also extends to your hobbies, your travel, and even your phone. Organizing is a lifestyle and mindset that anyone can adopt. Consider this book our 360-degree approach to help you contain the chaos of your life and all the contents that come with it—whatever that may be.
Alright, now that we have that covered, it’s time to step inside and leave any guilt you might have about owning things at the door . . . except can you maybe take your shoes off first? Thanks!
