I find flylady to be a slightly mixed blessing.
A few years ago I followed it religiously, and it was FANTASTIC. I DID have to rush to do the home blessing (and I live in a small apartment). But I did the run around and the place did "clean itself" after a while. It seemed so effortless. Then I had "flu" for to weeks and the routines fell apart. I never ever managed to pick them up again. I have finally started again this month and am starting to feel it happen again. The kitchen and entrance hall are tidy and clean - and I know by the end of the month I will feel able to "open the door to anyone".
I do feel though that it is a system that needs to work for "you". To me the days for the various chores (errands, clean out car etc) just didn't fit. So I swapped them around to suit myself. Sometimes life would "happen" and the home blessing didn't all get done - so I would finish it the next day or so.
I think if you are a naturally organised person, it would proably drive you nuts. If you are obsessively tidy, or (like me) obsessively untidy
, then it is a good system. Once you ahve the system under your belt you can change it around as much as you like.
I know I struggled ot do my bed in 10 mins - and I am GOOD at beds - so people having lots of kids must really struggle. I guess the best bet is to have them do their own - even the youngest kids can strip their own and put their own pillow cases on?
