Too often people think their homes should look like what they see in magazine pictures.
Keep in mind that these are staged photos and shot by professional photographers. Most homes don’t look like what you see and probably never will. Setting that expectation on yourself can lead to stress and frustration.
When people ask me if my home is super organized, my response is “My home is organized for practicality.”
The key is to have the organizing products or furniture compatible with YOUR life style. EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT and has different lifestyle needs.
This month I want to share ways I have organized some areas in my home.
