    Keep going Taz FlyLady teaches us that we did not get buried under all our clutter overnight so we can not expect to clear it in one go.

    What I have found is when you get somewhere clean and tidied it seems to magically stay that way. It's easier to keep something tidy rather than getting it tidied!

    We both went to the gym today and my OH had a bath when we got home (unlike me he will not shower at the gym - don't ask!) and as I had the bathroom spotless he cleaned the bath afterwards. Unheard off!

Car emptied, that's 2-3 car loads we've taken there since we started to clear out for the new bedroom but the place still looks like a junk shop! Although the bedroom is practically empty the lounge is still full of stuff that shouldn't be in here and we have a storage unit packed with stuff that all has to go back when the new bedroom is done. I am having a mild panic that it's not all going to fit back in even though we will have more storage than we've ever had! I'm hoping that when we sort the stuff back in we will be able to get rid of a few more things.
    Put it back in order of importance -- and what doesn't fit (if anything) might not be worth keeping! Fab progress.

    I started my bedroom curtains this week and have been putting it off for a year... just moved 18 mths ago and the next room is my bedroom to be decorated and wanted to make the curtains... My mind had to be in the right place like losing weight... Now the curtains are nearly done and its a weight off my mind - why did I procrastinate! Now I am working my way through a pile I books I wanted to read and when I read it I give it away, no need to sit gathering dust on my shelves. I have about 3 now to go and then it might be a trip to the library instead. Cant seem to shift the amount of wool I have for my crochet projects though.

    Decluttering works in so many ways.

    You are so right. I look at a cluttered room and it overwhelms me but when it's tidy and nice I get all anal when someone puts something where it shouldn't be! That's why my lounge makes me want to cry at the moment, it's been meticulously tidy for 2 years and now it looks crap. Nowhere near what it used to be like but I just don't like seeing it like that.

    That's an excellent idea, I will do that. Thanks

    I need to get moving... I want to play hooky later today, all day tomorrow, Thursday afternoon... My ironing has been untouched since the one day I ironed last week.

    Yes it is Zone 2 but if another area requires the focus then do that. When I first started I just decluttered every day until I could see the surfaces that needed cleaning! It then made a change not dusting the clutter and it was quicker

    Flight Plan for Monday, February 3, 2013

    This Week we are in Zone 2 - The Kitchen

    This Months Habit - Declutter 15 Minutes a Day

    * Morning Routine:
    -Get Dressed to Shoes including Hair/Face, Brush Teeth
    - Make Bed
    -Swish & Swipe
    -Empty Dishwasher
    -Reboot Laundry (a Load a Day Keeps CHAOS Away)
    -Check Your Calendar
    -Check Your Control Journal

    * What's For Dinner?
    * Drink Your Water
    * Declutter for 15 Minutes
    * 15 Minutes of Loving Movement (exercise)

    Zone 2: Mission #1 Monday

    Clean your kitchen trash cans!! Take out the trash and wash those nasty gross cans out! You know what happens when that trash bag slips down and yet the rest of the family still tosses things in there! Use a rag and wipe down the sides and the bottom. Some of you may need to take the can outside and spray it out with the hose. If you have a lid, don't forget to clean the underside.


    I guess I'd better get going on this... Yuck!

    I have just found a site on Facebook for selling and swapping stuff... so now some more clutter can find itself flying its way out of the house and some cash in my pocket.. (as long as I dont buy too many bargains and bring it back in).

    All done except the bins (we don't keep a kitchen bin, yuck) or exercise, oh or decluttering.

    Dishwasher done, dinner in slow cooker, dressed to shoes, been shopping & put it away, drinking away at my water etc.
    I feel like I'm flying again

    I do have clean laundry to hang up though but DS sleeping so will have to wait.

    Kitchen bin was cleaned by OH this weekend so I have done a load of washing and just been to the gym. Only to do yoga but it counts!

    Got my 15 minutes done in the kitchen yesterday and moved a few things from the table which is todays 15 minutes. Hoping to make some progress on the table today in the 15 minutes I have reserved for that. I will have to do an extra 15 minutes one day as I will be out all day Thursday and won't be able to fit it in.
