Zone 3: Bathroom and an Extra Room

This week we are focusing on the main bathroom and one extra room. The extra room may be a second, or third bathroom, a guest bedroom, a child’s bedroom, the office, or maybe the laundry room. Just pick one extra room and focus on it this week.

The bathroom: Do you live in fear that someone will actually see your bathroom? It is too easy to close our eyes to the mess that is hiding right behind the bathroom door. This week, we are going to open that door to the bathroom, and BabyStep, by BabyStep, we are going to conquer the CHAOS that is the main bathroom!

Your bathroom should give you sense of relaxation and joy when you enter. This is a place for you to pamper and take care of yourself. Treat the room with love and respect and it will bless you with comfort and peace.

FlyBabies: Remove the obvious clutter, take out the dirty laundry, and empty the garbage can.

If your bathroom is clean but still cluttered: Start decluttering (makeup, old towels, old medicine, hair supplies, shampoos, etc.). Check out our daily missions. FlyLady usually sends out one during the week which concentrates on decluttering one small area of your bathroom.

If your bathroom is decluttered: (that means no more clutter — only the things you use and love) Go onto the detailed cleaning list. You will be amazed at how wonderful a 20-minute mini-vacation in a hot bath (complete with candles and bubbles) will feel when the CHAOS is gone from the bathroom. Enjoy!

Don’t forget to add the bathroom to your daily routines. A couple of minutes focusing on the bathroom each day will make a huge difference!

FLY Spot

Welcome to Zone 3. It’s a brand new week and a brand new zone. We will be working in the bathroom and one extra room all week long. This week’s Fly Spot Alert has us headed into one of the most dreaded parts of the home…. the garage! This is definitely my number one hot spot. It becomes my dumping ground for anything and everything coming out of the car. And with a 10 year old, it’s always a surprise what I find in my back seat! If you don’t have a garage we are also focusing on our Guest Room or any dumping room you have! This does often include the garage! Set your timer for just 15 minutes and clear out as much clutter as you can. If it’s trash, toss it in the can. If it’s laundry, drop it in the laundry room. You get the point here lol. On your mark, get set, GOOOOOO! "This is FlyLady's List that has grown by leaps and bounds..." Copyright 2001 - 2014 FlyLady and Company, Inc.
