Someday 1 - 7, 2011
This week we are in Zone 4: The Master Bedroom
This month's Habit is: Swish and SwipeZone 5: Mission #1 Monday
Dear Friends:We are in the Living Room for a whole week!! Now we get the question about family rooms and living rooms. What to do if you have both? Well, my answer is to do the mission in both rooms. I try really hard for the missions to take less than 15 minutes so it should not be too much of a time crunch to do both rooms if you have them.
Your mission for today is to go sofa and chair diving! This is when you remove the cushions from your sofas and chairs and start digging for the things that magically disappear in there. Grab these things, toss them and then grab your vacuum and suck up the little dust bunnies that like to multiply. I bet some of you will find a few things that people in your family have been searching for!
FlyLady RebeccaZone 5: Mission #2 Tuesday
Dear Friends:This week we are in the Living Room Zone and I want each and every one of you to go into your living rooms and stand there. What do have on these surfaces? Are they the same decorative things that you have always had? Do you really love them? Are they cluttered up with too many things? I am not condemning those things but asking you if they still bring you joy and do you still love seeing them in your living room? Or are you just used to them?
You would be amazed at how much neater your living room will appear by just removing a few things. How much easier would it be to dust these areas without all that stuff?Your mission is to get rid of the stuff that is cluttering up your living room. Take 5 minutes to let go of some things. I am willing to bet that more of you will find you do want to get rid of some things because they do not bring you joy and you are just used to them being there.
FlyLady RebeccaZone 5: Mission #3 Wednesday
Dear Friends:For today you are to take 10 minutes and dust the decorative items in your living room. The picture frames, lamps, and knick knacks. This is a detailed dusting so, turn on the music and move quickly.
Don't get sidetracked, set your timer and go.
FlyLady RebeccaZone 5: Mission #4 Thursday
Dear Friends:Today we are going after the neglected areas of our living room/family room. Grab a feather duster or dust rag and go after the tops of door jams, pictures, molding, windows, corners of the ceiling and the tops of your curtains. Now do not get obsessed and start tearing the room apart. Just look up and dust!
FlyLady RebeccaZone 5: Mission #5 Friday
Dear Friends:Today is the last day of the Living Room Zone. Your mission for today is to place something pretty in the room that is just for you. I am thinking of some lovely flowers that are from your garden or a small bouquet that you can purchase for just a few dollars. Maybe you have a lovely arrangement or plant somewhere in your home that would be just perfect in your freshly cleaned living room! Enjoy!
