I follow two ladies on youtube who do cleaning tip vlogs. It's not always about cleaning, they have recipes and things too. Anyway, when I know I don't feel like cleaning I watch a couple of their vlogs and I get motivated.

I hope this helps! I tried flylady, too and I could never stick with it.

I don't know how many actual programs there are out there (especially free). What finally made FlyLady click for me was just using the BASIC outlines of routines that she suggests and completely tailoring them to me. My routines now (after 6 years) look nothing like hers. The other thing I've always liked about her emails and stuff is that it's not really about the routines, its about shifting attitudes and taking care of yourself.

I would suggest starting a control journal...getting your routines down. Then working on what days you want to clean certain areas in your home. I have been flying for a while..I just don't stick to it all the time. When I started I tried doing the baby steps that just didn't work for me...Good luck! I will try to find a site I came across where they used a recipe file box and index cards writing down your routines and things on that..seems kinda interesting. It was SHE something....

Good luck!

I tried flylady too. I don't like it. It clutters up my inbox with too many emails.

that was one problem... I got on my email after about 24 hours and had 99+ emails and almost choked on my drink! I unsubscribed from all emails and deleted all I had... I dont have time for that! my email gets about 10 mins a day...
