It’s finally spring, which means most of us are busy with the annual (and often dreaded) home clean out. So, you’re likely searching for some new organizers to tackle the clutter in all the rooms in your home. But in a sea of bins and baskets flooding the store aisles, which one are the best and worth the cost? Naturally, we tapped the expert duo behind The Home Edit, Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, to share the one organizing product they can’t live without (and the one you need to get your spring organizing done just like a pro).
Our mission at SheKnows is to empower and inspire women, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
The master organizing team has a laundry list of things going on these days—most recently, they’ve teamed up with Blue Moon LightSky to chat about how to lighten up for spring. Psst: You can enter to win a virtual home organizing session with them via Blue Moon’s Instagram, so check it out now. Anddd if you donate six items from your closet clear out, you can win a pack of LightSky. Count us in!
But since most of us won’t be lucky enough to win, we’ll need a little expert advice to guide us along the way. Their best advice? When in doubt, go the multi-purpose bin route.
“Every item needs to live within a containment zone—any type of bin (this is their favorite, though!) will help create a system that’s easy to maintain and ensure that everything has a home,” says the duo. “Add a label for even more accessibility!”
The real secret to actually enjoying cleaning and organizing? Make it a party, of course!
“We’ve also found that making cleaning fun can make a world of difference. Whether it’s a podcast or sipping a Blue Moon LightSky (two things we love), there are ways to make spring cleaning feel less like a chore and more like a fun afternoon!”
On top of organizing people’s closets, Shearer and Teplin manage to keep their entire lives organized too—so if they tell us we need one particular organizing product to make our lives feel less chaotic, we’re not asking any questions. From their new workbook that just launched earlier this month and a must-have Calpak collection you need for all your travels to their Netflix show being renewed for season 2, The Home Edit’s got a lot going on but still keeps things contained. Honestly, how do they do it?!
