Day 3 – Get More Familiar with the Flylady's Resources to Help You Succeed

Did you end up getting dressed yesterday? How'd you feel afterwards and the rest of the day? Did you try wearing lace-up shoes to see if that helps you feel more motivated to get things done?

Flylady 31 Baby Steps - Day 3 - Get more familiar with the Flylady's Resources

Today we are going to check out some resources that can help you get started on your journey and make it more successful! First, check out the current day's, week's and month's missions, daily focus, and cleaning zones on the Flylady website here. Make sure you're dressed to shoes and you've shined your sink before checking it out (part of establishing a morning routine). We will go into detail on what those things are later.

To be honest, I find her website to be overwhelming and not well organized. So you can also find my Flylady posts on my blog here, if that's easier. Another idea for today is to read a chapter in one of Cilley's books – Sink Reflections or Clean in 31 Baby Steps and we will talk about it in my Facebook group

More than anything, today is to show you that there are helpful resources out there for you to use!

CLEAN DISH TOWEL – Also, one of Cilley's tips for day 3, and I love this tip, is to put out a clean dish or tea towel each night after you shine your sink so you start the day with clean towels. I also put any sponges in the dishwasher before I run it, and change out my washcloth in the kitchen each day. I used to wait until all of those were stinky before I'd change them out. Isn't that so gross? Yuck! Now it's much more pleasant to have a clean dish towel and washcloth to greet me each morning.

  1. Love the 2 minutes! I’m not much of a visual cluttered. I put everything in drawers! Haha. So I cleaned the 2 drawers of my China cabinet. 2 minutes each drawer. Just doing this everyday will help me get rid of a lot of junk!

  2. After team driving with my husband and only being home 24 hours a week for 5yrs. Im finally home now with granddaughters… & the awful, chaotic, mess of a house. So very grateful to find your page. Im so overwhelmed and squirrel with a thousand other things i need to clean. I have true hope now to have a real organized & clean home to enjoy!

  3. I have taken to replacing most of the shoulds with coulds . Ex: I should do the dishes/I could do the dishes. Thanks to my French friends for their inspiration! (Other Europeans as well.)

  4. In addition to putting washcloths and dish towels into the laundry every day I also add pillowcases. Helps keep the sweat and whatever else emerges in the night off the face!

  5. My grandmother and all her friends always dressed in the morning. Down to a nice necklace. Our Mom as well. No slobby sweatpants!
