Previously, we compiled 10 Best Decluttering & Tidying Lessons From Marie Kondo Netflix Seriescheck it out for a recap of the series. With Netflix releasing a brand new home organization series, “Get Organized With The Home Edit”, we couldn’t miss this binging on this too!

Following the Marie Kondo sensation, The Home Edit is a Nashville-based company set up by two professional home organizers (Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin) to create an easy-to-maintain functional system that is visually appealing. We’d like to think we’re the Singaporean version of them as we share the same mission of empowering homeowners to create an organized and happier life.

We’ve compiled 8 best organizations tips from The Home Edit that you can apply to your next home organizing project – read on to learn more!


1. Figure Out Your Goals

Before you start organizing, you need to figure out what you’re organizing for. Come up with a game plan on how you want to use your space. Are you looking to create a more functional space at home or space for your kids to grow into?

There is no one way when it comes to organizing your home. You should organize your space based on you and your family’s needs so that your system will be easily maintainable in the future. For example, if you’re a doctor, keep all your doctoral needs in one place so it’s easy for you to grab and go. Find out what is your goal at the end of your organization journey.


2. Editing (Or Decluttering) Is Inevitable

Editing (or decluttering) is an important step as you need to choose your priorities.

Do you want all your items or do you want more space? You can’t have both. 

– Joanna & Clea, The Home Edit

Start by taking everything out of your space. This helps you understand all of your inventory. From there, take time to assess all your items and eliminate those that you don’t need.

If you’re unsure whether you should throw something out or not, keep it in storage away from the main area and see if you or your family reaches out for it within a certain timeframe.


3. Creating Zones Is Key

Creating zones in your space is the key to form and function. Zones are designated spaces for a category of your similar items such as handbags or jewellery. It helps you make sense of the space that you have as well as serves as a visual reminder to declutter once your items flow out of the designated space.

Some unique zones used in The Home Edit:

  • Backstock: It refers to anything extra that you have in your home – food supplies, cleaning supplies and more. They’re essentials that you need at home and it’s usually in the garage, or well, a storeroom in a Singapore context.

  • Touch Access: Items that you work with regularly – phone bills, stationeries or even comfort food. Things that you want within your reach.
  • Drop Zone: If you’re someone who enjoys switching out your handbags, create a drop zone for yourself – a space for you to organize your belongings as you transfer from bag to bag.

4. Containing Your Items

Containers are a great way to maximise the space that you have. You can choose from a range of different containers – from clear containers to woven baskets. Choose the container that fits you and your home’s needs.

Tip: Make sure you carefully measure the space that you want to put your containers. This prevents you from buying containers that don’t fit!

However, if you’re someone who often forgets what you have at home, The Home Edit are big fans of clear containers. They believe that when you can see your items, you are more likely to use it. This will also give you an idea of what you have or don’t have at home so you can prevent over-purchasing!

Cabinets, drawers and even refrigerators are great spaces to hide away items that you don’t want your guests to see. Over time, you will be too comfortable shoving things deeper inside and eventually you’ll forget about the items at the back. 

To prevent that from happening, you can use baskets and containers to act as a drawer to store your items.

Similar to how zones serve as a visual reminder for us to not overcrowd our designated space, containers give you a gauge of how many items can comfortably fit in your space. They provide an individual allotment for your items, preventing you from overstuffing.

When decluttering your home, you’re bound to find some items that you cannot bear to part with or items that you hope to upcycle or reuse. You can keep those items but ensure that it’s kept in a systematic order.

  • Sentimental clutter: Have a designated box to keep all your sentimental items such as pictures, cards and other keepsakes.
  • Aspirational clutter: If you have clothes that you hope to fit back into, keep it inside a bin or storage box. Only keep those that are 1 size off and get rid of anything bigger than that.
