More on my FLYing adventures....

i began Fly Lady back in January when i was deep in my annual Seasonal house trashed, my floors sticky and crunchy...laundry rotating on the couch. I have proudly been babystepping the system for 6 months now!! My family is mostly on-board (we are still working on baby-stepping the kiddoes into keeping their rooms tidy), and we have made LOTS of changes in our habits including 'decluttering' the dish cabinet because i was tired of washing 2 dishwasher loads of dishes per day in my small portable dishwasher. I labeled a bowl, plate, cup and silverware for each member of the family, and moved the rest to the very TOP of the cupboard (company). We now wash each dish after each meal and get it put away to keep the sink clear (because my family now understands now nice it is to have a shiney sink!!)

i have gotten rid of countless bags of un-needed items, donating them to the thrift store if i couldn't think of specific people that could use my stuff. We still have a long way to go, but its amazing how much stuff i have gotten rid of in just 6 months.

DH was able to rip out the 35 year old living room carpet to reveal beautiful hard wood floors because all the excess junk in the livingroom is GONE!! My bedroom has become a haven, where before it was a dumping ground for the stash n dash (Its like Marla has been to my house HAHA I thought i was the only one besides my mom that did stash n dash)! And now i have a new bedspread on the way to make my bed even more special, and a place to put the Jammy Bag my mama made me when i was little :
