If you haven’t heard of flylady, visit her site. It’s a great concept, many people don’t like the million emails. I heard a rumor that there is less emails. I have recently seen multiple bloggers post about how this just didn’t work for them. And I will say I am an on and off FlyLady. Currently I’m off and in search for a new system for me.
But what are the three things that I learned and really helped me from flylady?
1. I have learned that a morning and evening routine can really help you. It can help you get around faster in the morning and feel less flustered. I still lay out my clothes and Zane’s clothes for the next day every night. And if I miss it? It makes the next morning hectic and everything is thrown off. I have even started trying to right down a routine, but I’m considering starting a series here about getting your life together.
2. I have learned the three box system. If you have a room that needs to be decluttered. Grab three boxes or bins. Have one for Goodwill, one for Garabage, and one for putting away. I know if I feel overwhelmed with cleaning that if I fill these bins once and get everything put away I feel better.
3. I have learned 15 minutes can be magic! For me to set the timer helps me not feel so overwhelmed. And it is amazing how much you can do in 15 minutes.
And that is my Sparkle Tip.
