Flylady.net?

I saw a fost in here about flylady. I don't want to get all the emails from her, and some of her system doesn't work for me.  As much structure as I'd like to have in my life, it's not always there. No car means I'm on the fly a lot (excuse the pun). I do like some of her lists and tips though.

One of the girls said she uses something on there everyday. I just can't remember what. My memory is also really bad.

 Here's the basic principles...Your house didn't get dirty in a day so don't expect to clean it in a day.  Baby Steps.  Get up and get dressed (she says to shoes, that doesn't work here because we don't wear shoes in the house) because you are less likely to clean in your jammies.  Go to bed with a clean kitchen.  Work a short time and take a break.

Try check her website, got to 'launch pad' and see what she has.  It's all the info from the emails without all the emails.  Then when you get a moment or it works for you, you can check it.

Thank you, now that I see your post it was you who had posted it. And no I don't expect this house to get all done in one day. Some of her ideas are good and some don't fit. The get dressed to shoes doesn't work here either. Depending on night time routine appt and such that changes too. My husbands not exactly top notch at night. 

Thank you soo much

 No prob!  I'm trying to understand her better because so many use her.  I still don't get everything lol. But I do like going on there and being 'told' what to do for the week.  That's motivating to me.

I tried to ''fly'' once but, the emails that I was getting everyday was ridiculous.

I just did what MamaJane said and you can go in and just click on Launch pad and get the benifits of it without the emails. I'm with you don't like the emails. She has some good ideas and techniques though.

I couldn't deal with all the e mails either, but I did learn some good habits from her. I swish and swipe, shine my sink, and declutter daily.

 I haven't heard that one.  I might look into that too.  I'd like to give several a try just to be able to give oppinions.  I want to give flying a few months first though.
