What's Your Most Imperfect Life Hack?
Plus a farewell to our beloved cult!
Today is our last live thread, and both Virginia and I are FEELING FEELS.
When we started texting about doing a “thing” together, we had no idea if that thing would resonate or just be an excuse for us to hang out more. I don’t think either of us expected this community to become so vibrant, so insightful, and so generous. These live threads have been A GIFT, and we’ll miss them! Thank you all so much for making this little pod such a joy to share.
We plan to keep these archives alive and may even pop in from time to time with the occasional new spot of content for you. And if you’ve been meaning to hop over that paywall but never got around to it, good news!
This week only, you can get a year’s access to everything Cult of Perfect for just $10.
That gets you full access to all six episodes AND every thread discussion, for 80 percent off the standard Substack price. So if you missed Virginia’s conversation on domesticity with Angela Garbes, Sara’s exploration of alternative kinship structures with Ashley Simpo, or our deep dive into all things trad wives and Christian Girl Autumn, we are ready for all your binge-listening needs.
Last Thread: How Are You Doing Less, Less Perfectly?
In last week’s episode, we talked about the very excellent “sock basket” method once used by Virginia and currently used by: Throw all your kids socks, unmatched, into one basket and kids choose socks from said basket. This cuts down on sock coordination, sock folding, AND sock putting away.
Throughout this podcast, we’ve also talked about room usage creativity (who said guest rooms have to BE guest rooms??); food prep shortcuts; pot luck but make it takeout; wearing repeat outfits; creating families that feel good rather than families that look good; and more. We adore hacks not only because they make our lives easier, but because they prove that a universal perfect simply does not exist.
