Then the frustration sets in as you realize how much energy and time you have wasted trying to obtain this goal.

You have to love the space you just organized.
Let that sink in for a moment…
It is not easy to keep areas of our home clean that we do not like. Messy closets, junk drawers, disorganized pantries. All of these spaces when constantly messy cause stress we don’t want to deal with.
But if you have taken the time to transform these spaces in organized systems that you are 100% in love with, you will have little to no problem keeping it that way.
That’s why when we cut corners with organizing, don’t get the matching bins, or don’t try labels, we still feel disconnected from the space making it harder to want to keep tidy.
The Most Helpful Decluttering Guide Ever
Compare it to a freshly landscaped backyard, you’d probably mow the grass and trim the hedges to keep it looking the way you love.
The same can be said for organizational systems you implement in your home. That’s why organizing has taken a turn from what it used to be, to visual art!
Dream big on exactly how you would want it, in order to love it, and then make it happen. If that means spending some money the exact organizing bins and containers you want then do it!
Or maybe it’s about rearranging the layout of your space, painting a wall, or getting new furniture.
The question is what problem areas in your home do you not love, and what can you do to change that?
Once you figure it out, having a clutter-free home will finally be your reality.
