I have tried it, but it went into the drains because i really have a hard time cleaning the sink (my husband does it, hes a plumber) So i ended the whole thing after a month. I did get help on other things though, so you learn alot from it. I think the point with the flylady is to make the cleaning automatic, you see what needs to be done and do it. It is a good site, i can absolutely recommend to others with and without "sinkfobia".

I've had mixed success. I get started, and then I "fall off the wagon". A few months later, I'll start again, and repeat. This will be my fourth try. I'm hopeful that the fact that flylady also gets discussed here on mylot will help me stay more focused.

I am a flybaby. I absolutely love everything about flylady. I do all the routines and babysteps. My house used to be so darn unorganized, now it is just the way I want it. I wouldn't have it any other way! I hope you get into it and enjoy it! Good Luck! :)

I am a "flybaby" and yes, its working. Its changed my life. Even if you only implement the one baby step, the first one, shining your sink, you will find that slowly but surely the house gets cleaner and better organised. It becomes easier and quicker. I find my control journal extremely useful. Not only am i disorganised, my house is/was trashed and i am a born procrastinator. Myhouse isnt perfect yet, but im certainly gettinmg there. And im starting to be more organised with everything in my life. I definitely reccommend following flylady to you. Please let me know how you find it. Remember to start small :) and keep at it :)

I've been working on the flylady system since this summer. I don't stick to it completely, but I find my house is much neater than it used to be. I have two children, ages 2 1/2 years and 8 1/2 months, and I'm taking a university course through correspondence. My favourite aspect of flylady is doing things for only 15 minutes. I used to leave things for a long time because I didn't have enough time to finish them. Now, I do what I can in 15 minutes. It is slow going, but at least things get done. It is great for my schoolwork. I work on my course for 15 minutes and then I go do some housework. I used to get so busy with my school that my house would suffer. Now I'm able to keep on top of things a little better. My house is far from perfect, but it is a huge improvement from how it used to be.

I am a flybaby. I am also a single homeschool mom. My daughters and I are learning from flybaby. I am putting together a household binder. One section is for our daily routines (chores), as well as weekly, monthly and seasonal chores and household maintenanc. We actually split up the work. So the daily chores that come to us are done by one of us each week. My older daughter is responsible for cleaning her bedroom and the kitchen. My younger daughter is responsible for the livingroom and her room. I have my room, the hall/laundry area and the bathroom. I have my morning routine down, and am working on getting used to afternoon and evening routines. I like Flylady, as well as Organized home, but neither honestly helps me completely. I also look elsewhere for advice. I am creating a website, Adventures in Organization, which deals with my journey through organizing my home, life and my body and well-being. Whatever I try that actually works will be on the site. I will be discussing ways/tools in organization, etc. What what had worked for me before flylady. For me it is not just about organizing my home. I have to have everything cleaned and organized.

I am now trying to do flylady again. I think it really works, and you do get more done if your dressed to the shoes, I have recently become a sahm, and i think flylady is easier to do if you are home all day. It was very hard to do and work also. But then again, I'm not organized at all either, I'm trying though. Have you tried it yet, and what did you think?
