Either way, I think you can always have a little bit of both. A lot of organizing and keeping your home a functioning place boils down to honesty and knowing what you want versus what you need.
The other day, I was in a Target doing some plain old grocery shopping, but decided to spice up my life by looking in their living areas- they honestly have some of the cutest decorative items I have seen in a while AND yes, I did buy a whole new set of plates because they were on sale and I loved them. But back to the point, when I was passing through the storage aisle to get over there, I saw a mom and daughter who looked like she was off to college, checking out some of my favorite Rubbermaid bins!
Normally, I would encourage such a thing, but their conversation consisted of denial. They were well aware that those bins were not going to be functional in her living space (a.k.a. the dorm), but were proceeding to stack them up to purchase anyway!
I was flabbergasted! There comes a time when you have to take the hammer to the nail and let purpose override pleasure! All storage bins like that, as pretty as they may be, must serve a purpose. And of course, you can have pleasure by it being aesthetically pleasing, but make sure it is going to work for certain! Otherwise, you have wasted your time and money.
Can I get an amen? Don’t fall in to the trap of pretty things! Like a fly sticking to a zapper, you will have wished you didn’t fall a prey to it! Keep the balance!
