I love to pin beautiful, organized spaces, but every time I do, my heart sinks a little. Yes, I would love the color coordinated closet, with a section just for hats (even though, I don’t wear any) and a pantry of organized noodles and cereals in pretty containers. The key element in these beautiful, organized spaces is the space. Well, and time and energy, but who has that either?
I look at these McMansions (to me, anything more than 900 square feet qualifies), and it makes me feel inadequate. Especially as a blogger, the feeling that my home should be perfectly sorted and staged at all moments is slightly depressing. My home will never be clutter free, especially the places that I spend the most time. I’d like to think that one day, when I live in my 1300 square foot McMansion I would have an actual pantry where cereal boxes fit and a closet that actually fits both my husbands clothes and maybe just half of my dresses. A place where I can store all the fabric I’ve hoarded over the years or Christmas decorations that have been spilling out of their boxed for the past few years.
For now, I’m just going to accept my messy home and post some of it, so hopefully you can feel better about your clutter. How do you deal with ongoing clutter in your home?
