Target wants to help you get organized, and to do so, they’re tapping some of the best organizers in the biz—The Home Edit. They’ve helped the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Molly Sims, and now with the help of the bullseye, they’re here to teach the rest of us a thing or two about tidying.
Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, the women behind the Nashville based brand, are sharing their tips for a successful move over on Target’s corporate blog. Here are a couple of their suggestions:
CS: Getting organized before you move is a game-changer. The goal is to avoid free-floating items in your boxes by containing as much as possible using bins and supplies. For example, organizing your laundry supplies into bins, your bath and beauty items into drawer inserts and your clothing on proper hangers makes packing and unpacking effortless.
JT: It’s okay to unpack first and organize later—if you try doing both at the same time, it can become overwhelming. The key is to first place the items you’re unpacking in the correct closet, cabinet or area, and come back to organize more thoroughly once you’ve emptied the boxes. Once you’re unpacked, you can shop for all the bins, baskets and containers to properly organize your new home.
This isn’t the first pro tapped by Target; Emily Henderson has served as the bullseye’s home style expert since 2014, and earlier this year, they named Austin blogger Camille Styles as entertaining expert.
Congratulations, The Home Edit! We can’t wait to see more of your tips.
