Blog Title: The Struggle is Real: Why Do I Struggle to Stay Organized as a Homemaker?

Blog Introduction: As a traditional wife, it's our duty to create a peaceful and organized home. It's the place where your family can thrive and create lasting memories together. We all want to be the strong, capable homemakers we know we can be- serving up delicious meals, keeping the home clean, and providing a nurturing environment for our families. But here's the thing: organizing our home might seem like a piece of cake, but it's far from it. As a homemaker who desires to be different, it's not uncommon to feel overwhelmed. That's why we are discussing some common reasons why you may struggle to keep your home organized and what you can do to overcome them.

Blog Body:

1) Lack of Systems - One of the most common reasons we struggle with organizing our homes as homemakers is a lack of simple systems. Specific systems need to be created as a part of a larger plan designed to promote productivity and decluttering. A successful system consists of dedicated storage spaces for each item, an established routine or schedule, and a thorough purge of unnecessary items. To get started, make a habit of keeping track of what you use daily and what you don't. Get some inspiration online, pencil out where everything should go, and commit to following your plan until it becomes second nature.

2) Time Management - Managing your time is more challenging than it seems when you have multiple responsibilities. With kids and pets running around, planning and execution of daily tasks can quickly spiral out of control. One of the great things you can do to bring more order to your home is allotting time slots for specific activities. Also, don't forget to add downtime to each day to ensure you're taking care of yourself as well. This will help you focus on specific tasks and prevent getting sidetracked.

3) Perfectionism - As homemakers, we often have high standards for ourselves. While there's nothing wrong with aiming for good results, if you're spending too much time obsessing over perfect outcomes, you might be holding yourself back. Perfectionism leads to procrastination and heaps of unfinished projects. It's okay to aim for excellence, but bear in mind that perfection is unattainable. To get back on track, make a list of the things that need to be completed in order of priority. Break them into milestones and reward yourself as you go. Before you know it, you'll be crossing off items from your list day after day.

4) Distractions - Distractions come in all shapes and sizes, from procrastinating on social media to impromptu visits from friends and family. Try to remain proactive by communicating to your loved ones the importance of respecting your time. Turn off your phone or email notifications during your designated working times. This will help you to avoid temptation and keep on task.

5) Lack of Motivation - Finally, it's easy to lack motivation when dealing with the same old routine every day, as a homemaker. Even with a comprehensive plan in place and motivation to keep your home clean, organized, and stylish, the required effort is significant. On days when you're feeling unmotivated, focus on what's possible, rather than what's not. Write down what you want to achieve, why it's important to you, and read it out loud every day. Adding music to increase your mood, and don't forget to take a short break to refresh yourself.

Conclusion: As homemakers, we all want a well-organized home and managed lives, but it's not always an easy feat. Following the steps above will help you to overcome your disorganization and enable you to take control of your home. Homemaking is an essential part of our lives, and we need to work hard and put in the effort to make it work. Remember, life is not always perfect, and things go haywire, but don't let that stop you from being the best homemaker you can be, day by day!
