You Don’t Have to Live This Way

Dear Friends,

Our procrastination is fueled by our perfectionism. We get caught in the trap of thinking we don’t have time to do it right. This is when we do nothing. Eventually the procrastination bites us hard and our homes become overwhelming. Isn’t this why you searched the internet looking for an answer to your messy house?

We give you to the tools but the most important part is the attitude adjustment you manifest in your head. You read what we write for you and use those messages to eliminate your perfectionism. It doesn’t happen overnight. Your home did not become cluttered in a day and it is not ever going to be that ideal of “Perfect”!

Perfect is a myth you only see in pictures of magazines. It is a word that I despise because of what it does to my FlyBabies. We so want to get it all together and feel good about our homes. We just never dreamed that in the process of getting our homes clean we would find ourselves.

Our perfectionism piggy-backed with procrastination put us in a coma. We don’t know how to make a decision so it is just easier to do nothing. Sometimes we just want someone to tell us where to start and what to do. I think this is why our message has touched so many people. We give you a starting place and tell you that you can do anything for 15 minutes.

In the time it takes to talk ourselves out of doing something we could have the job done. You know the dialog. It has become invisible to our thinking processes because we have played it out over and over each time something needs to be done. We hear ourselves saying we don’t have time. Those words are the first red flag for us. If you would set your timer at the moment those words cross your lips or enter your mind you would feel so much better. No more procrastinating. I don’t have time has turned into do it now!

Do it now is doing something! Sometimes it is just putting away one item but it is something! Sometimes it is decluttering one item; one bag or one box. Celebrate your Go Me accomplishments. They don’t have to be perfect or even finished to be a reason to throw your arms up in the air and yell Go ME! Getting up is better than being paralyzed in a chair saying I don’t have time.

It is time to stop procrastinating! This week is for all of the procrastinators who have not been decluttering. You can do it! Just do something! You will feel better! We are getting rid of 40 Boxes in 40 Days!

Are you ready to FLY free of the clutter?


We are discontinuing our XL Mop. This mop is quite large. The XL Mop Head is 6 inches wide and 15.5 inches long. There are spring-loaded clamps on either side of the XL Mop Head, as well as a line of Velcro on either side, to hold the XL Chenille Mop Cloth firmly in place.

I don’t even know why it has the white clamps because the Velcro holds the XL Large Mop Cloth quite well!

Right now our Dishtowels are half price at $5.97.

We have some great tools to help you get your home and car ship shape! You might even have a little fun in the process. If you make it fun it will get done. Use Coupon Code Clutter862 to save on items that are not already on deep discounts.
