First of all, if you love a clean house, if you've always been good at keeping down the clutter, and dusting and sweeping and mopping, you do not need Flylady. Look at your ceiling fans: If they don't have dust-balls hanging from the edges, you likely don't need Flylady. You probably dust them at least a couple of times a month, right?
Flylady is for dysfunctional housewives (and husbands and singles) who were born without the "clean gene". These are not necessarily lazy people. Many of them hold down a job, or garden and can the produce, and/or enjoy regularly cooking meals. But you'll notice dust on the furniture; the refrigerator always needs some attention; there will be a couple of dirty dishes in the sink and clean dishes stacked in the drainer, and the trash cans are constantly full.
I just described my normal self.
There are certain precepts that are inherent in the Flylady doctrine. For instance, you never have to do any kind of housework for over fifteen minutes at a time. Flylady's website has a timer you can buy.
WARNING! Anything Flylady sells on her site can be purchased much more cheaply elsewhere (perhaps not in purple, and perhaps not with cute little sayings... but still), so save your money and search the Internet for similar products to hers.
Flylady divides your house into zones, and has you concentrating on that zone for a given amount of time so that after a month, your whole house has been cleaned thoroughly. Don't worry, there's a whole-house cleaning once a week, too, called "house-blessing".
If your house is in bad shape, you aren't supposed to do the zone work until you get a few other things down pat.
You begin by shining your sink. In my case, this step begins with putting away the clean dishes.
Next day you start putting on your shoes.
There are all sorts of decluttering opportunities along the way.
If Flylady still sounds like something you could use, go ahead and try her. It certainly can't hurt. I'm going to think about it while I clean out my refrigerator.
