Maybe you know of her, maybe you don't, but I have an old friend named the FlyLady. We used to be real close, but then we drifted apart, until I rarely ever thought of her. It got to the point where I was living in what theFlyLady calls CHAOS (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome)!
Well, we are getting reacquainted again and I am SO HAPPY! See, just look at that shine!
For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, The FlyLady is a clutter-free lifestyle. She is a wonderful woman who wrote a wonderful book, has a wonderful website, and leads you to a clean, homey, un-cluttered life.
It all starts with cleaning your kitchen sink, and by cleaning, I mean take about 45 minutes to clean your sink. I did mine tonight, and then, since your sink is so clean, you just HAVE to clean the rest of your countertops because otherwise your sink just looks odd. THEN, since it is so pristeen, you just can't imagine leaving a dirty dish in it... and so it begins!
I am going to start tomorrow on my timed throw out/donate sessions AND getting dressed in the morning, including shoes!
If you need some order restored in your life, I highly suggest reading her book... Sink Reflections and checking out her Flylady.net website
