Inspiring Me to Become a Better Me

Dear FlyLady,

I was inspired by FlyBaby in Maryland who said she plans her menu on Post It notes which she puts on her calendar.

I LOVE the FlyLady calendar! I have always used calendars, but never bought the FlyLady one till this past August. My family is so busy that there wasn’t enough room on any other calendar that I have purchased. Why did I wait so long (years) to buy the FlyLady calendar? I didn’t want to spend the money. We are on a very tight budget and I have had to become very frugal by necessity. I am SO glad I bought this calendar as it is so easy to use! I write in pencil, have a good eraser handy (not the one at the end of the pencil!), and I will never go back to any other calendar.

I “sync” this paper calendar every Sunday with the calendar on my iPhone (which I also check daily).

I have 2 part time jobs and I’m often not home to prepare dinner at dinner time. We eat out A LOT. The result? We are all overweight and have less money. I know the solution is preparing more meals at home but I just couldn’t get into the swing of it. When I read Flybaby in Maryland ‘s testimonial, I was finally inspired! I sat for a couple of hours with my coffee, my recipe book, Pinterest, and my knowledge of what my family really enjoys eating. The result? An entire month of dinners on the calendar, with “eat out” days planned, yet on reusable sticky notes that give me flexibility.

Thank you FlyLady, FlyStaff, FlyBabies for inspiring me to become a better “me”!
