Read The Home Edit Life: The Complete Guide to Organizing Ab…

When at home or on the go, you don’t have to live like a minimalist to feel happy and calm. The Home Edit mentality is all about embracing your life–whether you’re a busy mom, a roommate living with three, or someone who’s always traveling for work. You just need to know how to set up a system that works for you.

In the next phase of the home organizing craze, Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin go beyond the pantry and bookshelf to show you how to contain the chaos in all aspects of your life from office space to traveling bags to pet supplies and holiday storage. Take quizzes and get to know your organizing style, tailor it to your family’s lifestyle, and lead the low-guilt life as you apply more genius ideas to every aspect of your life.

Haha, this book was not remotely relatable 😂 All the examples are celebrities’ homes? They own many beautiful things, so it’s easy to make it look good. Lots of large collections of things (emphasis on shoes, makeup, crafty goods), but I don’t think putting my junk in neat containers will make it look pretty 😂

If only my fridge looked like this 😂

I laughed that they gathered up their cat toys, which weren’t all shredded and gross, and skipped over advice about the litter box, a big home challenge IMO 😉

Very traditional, heteronormative vibes, aimed squarely at the upper middle class mom.

I liked all the rainbow pictures, and it was fun that the design makes the edge of the book a rainbow too 🌈

The number of single use items in this book makes me want to cry lol

Cover for Infinite Country

Like this cover by Hea Eun Grace Han. Cool to see it come out of the earlier concepts. The stripes of 80s/90s rainbow fluorescent color fading to cream, the combo of type and realistic illustrations, lovely.

Ballsy Letterpress Design from Jessica Hische

Liked (

The type is so fine on this it seems pretty ballsy to trust that registration but the printers nailed it!

One thing I like about letterpress is color blending / stacking, and I’m impressed to see it used in a design composed of such thin elements.

Jessica Hische is an impressive designer.
