Can We Change Things Around?

Dear FlyLady

I was wondering if I had to do the Basic Weekly Plan just the way I see it on the Homepage when I log on. For example; I see

Monday, the day we do our weekly home Blessing
Tuesday is free day
Wednesday is Anti-Procrastination day
Thursday is errand day
Friday is date night
Saturday is Family fun day
Sunday is Renew Spirit

It would seem odd for me to do these things on alternate days when I see something different on my computer.



Dear Becca,

The reason that we set up a Basic Weekly Plan is because it was easier for me to mentor everyone when we were all on the same page. I have always said that you can adapt to fit your family. You may want to stick with the way we do it at first so you will get the hang of how our system works.

Let’s just say if you have a different schedule for work where your days off were on Tuesday and Wednesday. That would be your weekend. You are more than welcome to change things up a bit. Weekly Home Blessing can be done over seven days. You don’t have to put together a whole hour. Some of us with busy schedules actually prefer to do one blessing a day.

Look at the list of things that need to be done each week. Set up aBasic Weekly plan for yourself from those items. I put mine on Post-It Notes for months when I first got organized.

If you have not made your Control Journal then you don’t have a plan for your home. With it your family can see exactly what you do around your home. We have all the directions on our website but if you have allowed your perfectionism to get in the way of building yours then just get the  workbook Control Journal. It makes it so easy for you to just fill in the blanks.

You can also get it with a calendar and with an Office in a Bag.
