Flylady

Recommended Posts

I was looking at some old threads and read about FlyLady. It's amazing! I am a great procrastinator and it looks like it might be worth trying! I just wondered if anybody else does this?

Sorry, I should have posted the website. It's here. It's a new way to approaching cleaning and organization. They say everything can be done in 15 minutes. It looks really cool. I am going to Target later tonight to get a timer so I can start with it tomorrow.

I'm a flybaby since October 2005 -- it's changed my LIFE!!! I don't do absolutely everything, but I'm surprised at all of the routines I've incorporated easily into my life.

I also subscribe to Savingdinner.com -- the menus she promotes. I use the regular menu mailer for 6, which is usually gluten free (or very easy to subsitute gluten-free ingredients). She also just came out with a gluten free menu mailer on the Low Carb edition -- I got my mom a subscription for her birthday. I could go on and on about the system and how great it is!! And the menus are so great. I've done them for a year now and I'm so proud especially of my kids -- they actually EAT VEGGIES now!!! And I save $$ and am not stressed about dinners anymore.

I used to follow Flylady and have fallen off the wagon for a while now. I am going to give it a try again too. I was thinking about it last night, so it's funny to see this thread here this morning! Maybe we could all help each other!!

Today, I'm getting control of my kitchen and cleaning off the counters (and shining my sink, of course!)

I'm going to check out the dinner site. That is my worst nightmare!!

I did try it a few years ago, but never really stuck with it. I really need to though, lol, my house is a total disaster and every surface in it is a hot spot. :lol:

The emails can definitely be overwhelming. You can sign up for the "digest" version, where you get all the emails in one big long email once a day. (Not everyone knows about that!!)

I started yesterday. I am going into a new school year and I;m freaking out because I neglect laundry, my chores, etc. Instead of cleaning the kitchen sink, I do my bathroom sink because my mom does the kitchen sink. That would be great if we could all support each other! I'd love that!

About the emails, they are annoying, but they're really helpful. I get sidetracked by the computer so when I check my emails and get a reminder...it's neat.

I'm not going to sign up again because of the emails. I am going to just go to the website and read the things.

Yesterday did not go so well for me. I was sidetracked by EVERYTHING - the kids, the phone, people stopping by etc. So, I'm trying again today.

That was an interesting article. I don't really know what I thought about it...it was a little mean to her. I don't think she's nagging at all. It's so easy to just delete the "15 e-mails" which I only get about 4 a day...so I don't know where that number came from? Oh well. ;)

I am on day 4 of Flybabying and I am going to look at the saving dinner book at my bookstore. I'm excited.

Thanks for the article link. I didn't think it was very nice to her either. It really wouldn't make me want to check out the site with all the nagging. But, hey, more power to her that she is able to make this a successful business and help people!! I didn't like all the emails either so that's why I just check the website.

Yesterday was a much better day for me.

I checked out the saving dinner site that was recommended and printed out some of the free menus. Way cool!!

How's all the flybabies?

I've just checked the site and had to ROFL that the zone this week is the master bedroom. That is THE WORST room in my house, I'm embarrassed to say. It's my dumping ground. SO, it will take me way longer than 15 minutes to get everything off my dresser, nightstand and backboard. I've got a load of laundry going and will swipe and swish my bathroom when I take my shower. I also have my menu planned for the week. :P

Kassandra,

Hi, my daughter insisted I check out the flylady after a carwreck sent me into a tailspin and my spotless home went into dissaray. I was a perfectionist that did nothing because I didn't have a month to get it all done. and the flylady was the kindest person in my life. My home is now a home again. All the health issues of Celiac impacted the projects i wanted to do also, but she gave me a vision and encouragement with out the criticism or guilt, for improvement. the 5 minute timer works wonders. and the longer you stick with it the easier life in the home cleaning arena gets.

I love the fact that now I can take a play day and feal good about it. You don't have to buy a thing from her and she will still help you. If it is the same as a couple years ago.

Best of Flylady

Spirit of the Home
