Are you stuck in CHAOS? (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome) Overwhelmed by clutter and disorganization?Flylady can help! For free!!
If you haven’t heard about Flylady yet, it’s about time you did. Flylady Marla Cilley has a wildly popular system for keeping your home clean and organized using “baby steps” that normally will only take you 10-15 minutes at a time. Your home is divided up into cleaning zones and each week there are a few extra tasks that you do to declutter and improve that room, in addition to the regular basic household chores that need to be done daily. When you sign up for her email list, each day you will receive several emails to remind you of what you should be doing, and encourage you along the way.
The web site is a wonderful resource as well. There are clutter-free gift ideas for everyone on your gift giving list, recipes and tips for getting meals under control, and tools that will make getting and keeping your home under control easier. I love her calendar–it has really big squares so that you have plenty of room to write down all the activities and appointments that your family has to keep up on. Anyone that loves organization and new ideas will love Flylady’s site.
I’ve been in an off-and-on relationship with Flylady for many years. When I have time to do the tasks, I love getting the email reminders. My kids have even gotten into it, asking me, “What does the Flylady say we have to do now?”
I’m about the the point where I need to sign up for dear Flylady again….she has a great plan for not just surviving the holiday season, but by using baby steps and planning, actually thriving and enjoying the season and having time to spend with family and friends. Why not check it out and see how the Flylady system can help you?
