15 Minute Time Slot

Dear Flylady,

I have been an on again off again FlyBaby for 6 years, I have a control journal but don’t use it like I should. For the most part our home is fairly clutter free with the exception of two rooms which I keep hidden from others! Those are my projects I intend to work on.

I wanted to write you because I enjoy the daily emails, the testimonials from others and the encouragement you provide to me, these are especially helpful to me as I am a PAYROLL SHE.

I absolutely love the menu planning and for the most part I do try and plan at least somewhat of a menu each month, sometimes I revert from it but it does keep me on track for grocery shopping.

The reason I am writing you today is because I love the idea of setting a 15 minute time slot and getting something done.

Last night I was looking at my laundry room and thought to myself, I can surely clean this room in 15 minutes. I had purchased the dryer vent kit several months ago and have used it once before but this time I moved the dryer away from the wall removed the hose off of the back of the dryer and vacuumed everything. I swept the floor and moved somethings around in the room. When I went to check on my time I still had 7 minutes to spare!

So I thought to myself, hey if the Dryer vent cleaning kit can work on the dryer why not under the refrigerator. So I started on the fridge, when I made my first swipe and came out with a lot of dust and hair I thought oh my, this calls for pulling the refrigerator away from the wall.

To my surprise it was a total mess, we have an Alaskan Malamute and we
could have made a small dog with all his hair under there! I unplugged the refrigerator and went to work, scrubbed the floor and got everything nice and clean. In the end the project took me more than 15 minutes but I was able to get a lot done.

Thanks for all you do and the blessing you are to us all.

Kristi, FlyBaby in Indiana
