Clients with clutter? Help them Fly!

By
Home Stager with Perfectly Polished Home

Do your clients have clutter in their home?? If so here is a FREE resource that is every stagers (or every person's, really) dream. I started "flying" 3 years ago just before my second child was born, and let me say - IT WORKS!!!

Check it out at www.flylady.net. I don't get anything for posting this, but I just wanted to share a very valuable tool that has been a blessing to our family.

We don't have a housekeeper, and even with a growing family of 5, our home is ALWAYS ready for dinner parties, overnight guests and even unexpected visitors.

 

- ALL beds are made EVERY morning

- There are NEVER dishes in the SINK

- I wash, fold and put away at least one load of laundry everyday

- Bathroom is cleaned DAILY

 

Think I am crazy??? Just check out the website and you can live like this, too. I will say that for the children there is a great program called the HOUSEFAIRY. This program does cost but it is less than a dollar a month I believe. It has the kids begging to clean & you can't beat that!

Hopefully this can help some of you, especially during the stress of school starting up and all of the wonderful extracurricular activities that go with it - seems there is never enough time to just sit down and relax. Plus you can take a nice vacation with all of the money you saved by not hiring a housekeeper!


Gotta go, my computer time is up for the night - but I hope some of you can benefit from becoming a FLYBABY!

Jessica I read your comment about this site on another post and thanks so much for sharing the information.  Now I just did some think time to read through it all.

Jessica~ I joined the Flylady years ago but dropped out, mainly due to all the email reminders.  But, you are right, she does help you keep on track if you follow her guidelines. I just thought about her the other when I decided to go around and throw out 20 items.  At this point, I should be doing it on a daily basis!

Yes - I can TOTALLY agree with you about the emails - several years ago, when I first started and had only one little baby, I didn't mind them as much.

We dropped the emails as soon as the main routines and basics tasks were habits for us.

Flylady is a fabulous resource.  Just make sure you subscribe to the daily digest, which means one email per day.  Otherwise, you receive multiple emails every day, which is just irritating if you receive a ton of others each day also.  The adivce really works, and is gentle and simple to implement.
