When I first starting making a concerted effort to organize my cleaning and home organization, the first place I encountered is still the place I turn to over and over again. I owe all that I've learned and the drive to push further to FlyLady! While I don't use all of her steps any longer, I can say that I've based a lot of my routines and lists to her initial ones that she provides to all "flybabies" for free!

Getting Started with FlyLady
Why am I sharing this with you? Because why re-write the book when there are excellent resources that we can refer to! She has control journals (home management binders) available for you to download if you wish, she provides you with routines, cleaning schedules and emailed reminders to keep you going all day, every day. If you feel you'd like to give her a go - then do! Later in this series I'll share another helpful resource that works for me too if this one isn't for you.
As with all things, take what you can use and leave the rest. Trust me though, FlyLady has things together and helped me when I desperately needed guidance.
