What's the story?

GET ORGANIZED WITH THE HOME EDIT is a reality series about a team of professional organizers transforming people's closets. Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin are the founders of The Home Edit, a successful professional organizing company that has, up until now, grown its entire business on social media. With their teams of organizers located around the country, Clea and Joanna go into the homes of celebs like Reese Witherspoon, Khloe Kardashian, and Rachel Zoe to help them reorganize their closets, which are full of expensive and exciting things. They also work with non-celebrities to help them clear out unnecessary items and create storage systems and solutions to make their space less chaotic. 

Is it any good?

This lively reality show, which is co-executive-produced by Reese Witherspoon, has the stylish flair of a fashion series while following a traditional home organizing TV show formula. The Home Edit team is shown purging, finding nifty storage solutions, and creating organizational systems that will work with their clients' lifestyles. The introduction of handsome-looking storage bins and labels, along with celebrity appearances, makes the overall show feel contemporary and stylish. 

Get Organized with the Home Edit focuses more on showcasing products and services associated with home organizing, rather than offering detailed tips that viewers can follow to improve their own spaces. As a result, the overall show is more entertaining and consumer driven than helpful and informative. Nonetheless, people who revel in home organizing will enjoy what is featured here.
