Thank you Mrs. Wilt and Fly Lady!
My gal pal K. loaned me the Fly Lady book as I am in desperate need of help decluttering and managing my home and I have finally started! Thankfully, the Lord has opened the opportunity for me to take on a ministry position in our church that will allow me to work from home during the week and giving me the time to be the wife, mom, and homemaker that I know He wants me to be!
Now, my gal pal K. is a fantastic homemaker! She is very organized without being obsessive, and she has, herself, put the Fly Lady's theories into practice. Whenever my little guy and I go over for a play date, her home is peaceful and calm, uncluttered and homey. Granted, she is quite the organized person by nature (I should know, teaching along side of her I gleaned so many helpful skills to help me manage and order my own classroom!), but I have seen her happily tackle cluttered areas of her own home with such great success that I had to try her system.
Enter, the Fly Lady.
Honestly, I have only just started, but her methods have actually given me hope that I can not only clean my home, but keep it that way! Behold, I have begun! Of course, I am keeping a clean kitchen sink, but I am also working on the hot spots and cluttered and stress-inducing areas of my home. I began with my kitchen, as it is where I spend most of my time. I really wish I had taken a before picture to share. Here is the after!
I purchased a few space-saving cereal containers, and locking lid containers, along with a few baskets for my cooking stuff to add storage height that I needed and voila! Now I can see everything, get to everything, and most importantly, it doesn't drive me crazy!
The second area I tackled was under my kitchen sink. Behind the dishwasher liquid on the left is my cleaning caddy with all of my various supplies. This is so much more organized and easy to keep neat.
Hopefully, I will be able to tackle a few more tough spots over the next couple of weeks....next stop,
