The first season of Netflix show “Get Organized with The Home Edit” was packed with celebrities and heartwarming stories of home improvement from across the country.
The new show premiered Sept. 9 on the streaming platform. It follows The Home Edit founders Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin as they help celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Khloé Kardashian, Eva Longoria and Neil Patrick Harris organize their homes.
Each of the eight episodes features one celebrity home and one regular family seeking help from the Nashville-based organizing duo.
“This is my dream, dream, dream project that you guys would come and help me organize,” Witherspoon, who is also the show’s executive producer, said in the trailer.
Shearer and Teplin helped organize Witherspoon’s memorabilia — including the iconic pink suit from “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde” — while another project showed them helping to move Longoria’s young son’s closet into a much larger room that most of us can only dream of.
The show is full of happy tears. In one clip posted to the trailer, Shearer said she has “no tears left,” while Teplin replied, “I’m dried out!”
The Home Edit rose to fame on social media. The duo has more than 1.6 million followers, where they offer tips and post immaculate photos showing how they’ve organized everything from makeup drawers to refrigerators.
Some of Shearer and Teplin’s favorite tactics include ordering items by color, labeling and using clear plastic bins to declutter an area.
In one episode, they summarize their methods as four main steps: edit out your space, meaning pare down what you have; categorize your items, which you can do by putting things into manageable groups; contain everything, which for them, always involves a run to The Container Store; and set yourself up to maintain the space by adding a label.
“Labels are magic. It’s so easy and it goes such a long way as far as maintaining a system,” Teplin said.
“It’s the key to maintenance,” Shearer replied.
Last year, they visited Hoda and Savannah’s homes and worked their magic.
“OK, this is unbelievable!” Hoda raved after she saw her new closet. “I kind of want to start crying.”
In addition to their online presence and show, the two friends are also authors. They’ve released two books: “The Home Edit: A Guide to Organizing and Realizing Your House Goals” and “The Home Edit Life: The No-Guilt Guide to Owning What You Want and Organizing Everything.”
