We’ve all seen the Instagram and Pinterest posts of the impeccably organized closet. The color-coded bookcases. The pantry with only clear canisters and handmade labels. Impressive, aren’t they?
Have you ever seen such a post and said to yourself “Wow, I could never make my home look like that?” Well, my friends, let me let you in on a little secret: You don’t have to.
Lots of people use what they see on influencer platforms as inspiration. They take and tips, hacks, and pretty photos and use them to fuel their desire to make their home more organized. Then there are opposite people, people who see what’s on social media and instantly feel overwhelmed. They don’t think they have enough time, space, money, etc. to make their homes look Insta-worthy, so they just don’t do anything. Period.
Influencers (even organizers) homes don’t always look like that – staged; You can find a system that works for you and your lifestyle without it needing to be “perfect;” my own black-and-white thinking. Would you tell your child “You’ll never be as good as the other kids at soccer, so you probably shouldn’t play at all?” Stop using this as an excuse to keep things the way they are.
