CSS CSS Flexbox Layout Flexbox Properties Wrapping Flex Items

Why doesn't my result look like the one in the video?

My result look different in small screens.

I have followed everything in this video - padding, margin etc. yet, my result looks different in small screens. In the video, once the viewport reaches it minimum width, the content is more or less centered in the container. However, I get a large gap to the right of my container - like its padding or something. I looked at the dev tools, and nothing explains why. I just don't understand why I can't achieve the same result.

Thanks

<div class="container">
        <div class="item-1 item">Item 1</div>
        <div class="item-2 item">Item 2</div>
        <div class="item-3 item">Item 3</div>
        <div class="item-4 item">Item 4</div>
        <div class="item-5 item">Item 5</div>
        <div class="item-6 item">Item 6</div>

I tested that code and it's working the same as the video. Either you're looking at a different part of the video or your browser is displaying odd behavior.

Hey, Mark

Yeah, I dug around and found that it had something to do with my normalize.css file. However, I'm still trying to figure out what caused the issue.

My result looks the same now that I disabled normalize

Thanks for your help, man
