A few years ago, I turned to FlyLady.net to help me keep my house clean, but then I got pregnant and was pretty much incapacitated by morning sickness. I never got back on track with the FlyLady system. But I never stopped receiving the emails either.
Lately, I’ve been wanting to keep a cleaner house. The house is okay but not great, and I feel like the kids are old enough now that I can do more. But it’s hard to get started.
Enter FlyLady. In my previous incarnation as a Flybaby (as she calls her followers), I had pretty good success. My biggest complaint was the number of emails she sends out every day, so I took someone’s suggestion and subscribed to the daily digest email instead – now I get one email that contains all of the previous day’s emails, keeping my inbox clutter-free.
I haven’t adopted the FlyLady system as a whole. But I love the concept that you can clean your house 15 minutes at a time. Just having that mindset again has me keeping the house as a whole cleaner, and I’m constantly thinking of how to make the house less cluttered and easier to clean – whether it’s getting rid of things or simply moving them around.
If you’ve been struggling to keep your house clean, I highly encourage checking out FlyLady for some ideas and inspiration.
