    That's where the baby steps help. Just set a timer and attack each room for 15 minutes. Get the guest room sorted -- and plan a lean protein meal that will work for everyone. Try to enjoy the visit.

    Next week's Fly Zone:

    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 Kelly's missions, she 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

    Zone 3: The Bathroom and One Extra Room. It's time to nourish the often overlooked wood surfaces in the bathroom. Using a wood soap or furniture polish, clean and polish the wood cabinets, shelves, and towel racks in your bathroom. Spend 5-10 minutes on this task and your wood will lose that parched look and have a pretty gleam that will also serve to protect the wood against the high humidity in the bathroom.

    The habit for February is Decluttering for 15 minutes a day.

    Declutter Anxiety

    Decluttering a sock drawer?

    Ask yourself: Do I really need them? I mean REALLY? Could I get another "wear" out of them? Just one? How about two?

    What about kitchen utensils?

    Try the Rule of Two.

    When faced with multiple items, pick out the two in the worst condition and toss them in the "Throw Away" bag. No evaluation or judgement needed.

    Once you get to where everything is in good condition, pick out the two that you use the least and toss them in the "Give Away" bag. I may need to do this over and over, but eventually I have just what I need. Everything is in good condition and everything is loved.

    Since February is DeClutter month -- try working 15 minutes a day on your home office with your timer on the desk. Or work in another "hot spot" area.

    Declutter -- 15 minutes at a time.

    Zone 3: Mission #1 Monday

    Today's mission is to look up high and get the cobwebs off the ceilings and clean the fan vent grill. I know this is a yucky mission; get a proper step ladder and your shoes. If you don't have a bathroom vent you can clean the light fixture. Get the dust and the sleeping bugs out and wash it.

    We are also in another room this week. We are going to focus on the home or work office:

    Look on the left side of your computer and go through this pile and file it or toss it.

    XXXXXXXXXX

    I'm going to clean the MB ensuite and downstairs loo. Plus, I'll try to get the kitchen floor swept and mopped after the cupcake creating we have planned.

    I'm working on laundry, ironing, and hope to vacuum the living room.

    The hotspots I'm going to tackle is some paperwork piles. I'll also work on packing, prepping gifts, etc. I also need to draft lists for food and other trip bits.

    Sometimes during a major sort out I have to scream at Mr Taz to get the bags/boxes out that are going out just so I can see some progress! It's quite soul destroying when you have spent ages sorting and it looks no better
    Failure doesn't happen until you give up trying!

    My friend bought a new shed and erected it next to the one they had (they looked okay together and there was room. After she used it for a huge sort out storage -- then sort and toss, keep, etc bit (on a tarp under a marquee in decent weather over a few days) and the stuff was either taken to the tip, donated, recycled, or repacked and stored appropriately -- they put hooks on the walls and hung all their bikes in there and put their garden table and chairs, grill, etc, in there over the winter months.

    a productive morning so far
    washed up dishes
    2nd load of laundry just finished.
    made beds
    wiped over bathroom
    took all the rubbish and recycling out
    made a huge dent in my ironning backlog.

    Will do a bit more ironning after work and then put it all away, that will make me feel better !!
