Instagram inspiration: Four influencers show you how to keep your home organised and clean

Move over, avocado toast; the latest Instagram fancy isn’t a grid of Buddha bowls and spiraliser salads, but something a lot more basic: a tidy house

Clean eats have given way to clean homes, organised cupboards, and wardrobes where everything is in line and facing outwards. ‘Cleanfluencers’ are having their day in the sun—and if the global success of organisational wizard Marie Kondo’s Netflix series, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, is anything to go by, it looks like they’re here to stay.

Since Kondo exploded onto the scene, hundreds of others have joined the revolution, labelling, organising and dusting their way into our feeds. Here are a few accounts that are making a clean sweep in the organising sweepstakes (apart from Kondo of course, who’s clearly a leader in her own league).

Jen Robin’s group of professional organisers know how to streamline things and make them look really spiffy, too. They’re all about proudly displaying what you have, but in the most organised way possible—think glass jars for the pantry, clear bins for the craft room and sorting books by height and colour.
