Welcome to a new month and a new habit! February is Declutter for 15 minutes, and we are going to take full advantage of our time. Monday through Friday this month you will get a new Declutter Mission that follows the Zone we are in. If you have a declutter story or an idea that you have found to be useful please send us an email with MY DECLUTTER STORY in the subject line!
February Declutter Mission #1 – Zone 1
Set the timer for 15 minutes and clear your front porch of all the Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas decorations.
Dear FlyLady and Rebecca,
I’ve been following the FlyLady system for about ten years and I can tell you it’s the best decluttering system (no, make that peace-in-the-home system) on the face of the earth!
My home is on auto pilot, and I love it, I just obey whatever my control journal says every day, I know it’s totally doable. Mind you, it wasn’t like that when I started, I had broken my leg on vacation and had lots of time on my hands to surf the net and that’s when I found you. It was a while before I could implement everything because I wasn’t able to use the stairs for a few weeks, but I took care of everything downstairs according to your plan from my wheelchair, and I’ll never forget how good it made me feel to bring my downstairs to order little by little! I never looked back, and I want to thank you for helping me love my home and myself instead of all the frustration and self-blame I experienced before I knew you! My favorite two sayings: baby steps and I can do anything for 15 minutes!!!
With deep appreciation,
