Zone 1: Entrance, Front Porch, and Dining Room

This week our Zone is very important to our homes. The entrance to our homes make the first impression on our guests, our family and ourselves. When we walk into a clean and tidy home our whole attitude will be uplifted. This puts a smile of pride on our faces. We have gone so long, looking at such a terrible mess, that we have been ashamed to answer the door. I want you to get rid of guilt that accompanies clutter and CHAOS. To do this you have to get off your franny and start to declutter this area.

FlyBabies: Your task is to declutter this area. Spend 15 minutes a day this week doing something, anything, in these rooms. They did not get dirty in a week and they will not get clean in a week, but you will be making headway. It is a trend! Get in the habit of decluttering in small segments of time. Decide what time of day you are going to tackle this little job, set a timer for 15 minutes, and just do it.

If Zone 1 is already decluttered: (that means no more clutter — only the things you use and love!) Go on to the detailed cleaning list. You will be amazed at how easy it is to shine and sparkle these rooms when the clutter is gone!

Fly Spot

Welcome to April! As the saying goes, April showers brings May showers. And we all know what showers and storms do to our front porch! Today’s Fly Spot Alert is to spend just 15 minutes and sweep off our front porch and stairs. Get up high in the corners and get the spider webs down. Get under the welcome mat too! Give that porch a good cleaning and then spend a few minutes enjoying the fresh clean porch! "This is FlyLady's List that has grown by leaps and bounds..."
