While reading the digest today I saw this mail and it really touched me ...
Testimonial: A Variation on a Theme
Dear FlyLady and flight crew,
I am in my third week of flying and all is going well following your routines. Life
suddenly makes SENSE!
Now that the house is coming together I find my attention shifting towards The
Loft! It is the place where we dumped everything we couldn't find a place for or
Well six years on, and it is still there and has prevented us from doing anything
better with the space.
I made a decision to deal with five items every day. I have to go up there and
THROW 5 items away every day, if it turns into a daily dozen better still, but I
HAVE to get rid of 5 items no matter what. When things are more manageable
up there we'll go for 15 minute de-clutters, but for now 5 things HAVE to go.
My husband is chipping in with a similar regime in the outbuildings and it is
really making a difference!
Just thought I'd share a variation on a theme that is working for me
Fluttering in N. France ~ Alex
FlyLady here: Make FLYing work for you! Just think how much you can
declutter if you will make it a point to fling 5 things a day! Or set your timer for
15 minutes and start decluttering!
Give yourself a GO ME and get started.
I LOVE that Flylady is not a 'one size fits all and here is my variation on this theme ...
- I am on my way to the patio where I am going to finalise at least 5 things in my briefcase.
- Tomorrow I will finalise 5 pages on my scrapbook table and put them in page protectors.
- On Saturday morning I am going to make 5 notebooks (gifts which have been on my To Do list for months!!!)
- On Sunday I will finalist another 5 pages and put them into page protectors.
