And that's exactly what these Instagram accounts do—from feeding yourself on a budget to handling your email inbox like the mature individual you are, they'll show you that there's a whole world of folks fighting the same everyday battles.

1. That's like nothing, right? 


2. Unfortunate truth



3. Definitely any day now



4. 100% reality 



5. Other people's deadlines


New call-to-action

6. Staycations are for winners



7. At least it's good for you ... right? 



8. Some serious detective work 



9. You're so wise now
