Declutter your house 101

My WW leader turned me onto the Fly Lady.  She just slyly mentioned things to do instead of eat, as in, "go"  In my mind I was picturing some big ol fat lady that was also a rapper.  :)

Anyway!  Fly Lady is no rapper, she is a de-cluttering master.  You could be on this site for hours reading about how to de-clutter and organize your home.  It's so incredible!  The best part?  She really breaks it down for you into small tasks and projects that are do-able and measurable so you don't feel overwhelmed and defeated right away.

Ever have that feeling?

Saturday morning, you are all ready to go.  You clean, and organize, and clean more, and move sh*t from room to room, take a break to eat lunch, clean the kitchen, take out several garbage bags, all of a sudden it's dark and you have a house full of clutter still.  OMG. 

I have done this so many times.  I just want to do it all in one day.  Fly Lady tells us not to expect to de-clutter in one day because your house did not get messy in one day.  Genius!!

Check her out and try her tip of the day.  Personally, I like the Launch Pad, to help you visualize her master plan.  The super fling boogie?  27 things?  No problem.  Think I'll get started tonight...
