The only part that makes me uncomfortable is Cilley’s strong religious beliefs, but the author herself says to take it or leave it. Near the beginning she tells the reader to check the clock and if it’s after 11pm to go to bed as soon as you finish the paragraph because your sleep is important.
I need a kick start, many sjnk, and a motivation.
She should have spent more time being clear about methods for getting your house clean and less time making it all sound so cute. With FlyLady’s system of working in Zones, you never have to spring clean again.
Cilley does give great tips on getting organized in little periods of time each day–something I try to do. I’ve actually tried some of the cheesy suggestions and once I sinm through my resistance to trying something that seems so silly, they really are quite helpful.
Oh, how hard it is to see those good advices that are hidden under a pile of traditional values. Second Generation FlyBaby by Testimonials. Now lets just see if I can implement these ideas Jan 08, Amy rated it it was amazing. I really am glad for them and for her.

Sink Reflections by Marla Cilley
Not a bad book on organizing your home, but not very well organized IMO for an organizational book. Take care of yourself, too.
Where the book lost me was in the execution.
As for the content, it reflextions be basically summed up with three ideas: This further emphasizes that the SHE is the one in the house who is responsible for the housework. There are times where the author orders the “dear reader” around in a slightly condescending way, but there’s something about that little cartoon FlyLady that makes it feel flylaady. Second, although she mentions frequently how little time you need – fifteen minutes here and there, an hour once a week – it adds up.
I’m not strictly a checklist person when it comes to routines and have been known to let some housework stand undone in favor of other worthy reflectiond. Knowing that, I was able to just fish through her ideas, adapt, and go forth with my own organizing talents. Aug 03, Tineke rated it it was ok Shelves: I have adopted a few of her ideas when it comes to organizing my cleaning schedule. She covers how to create daily and weekly routines and a control journal.
This book is not for everyone, but it is GREAT for people like me whose perfectionism gets in the way of truly being productive around the house, and people described as SHEs “Sidetracked Home Executives” who have g I was a bit reluctant to give this book 5 stars, because it isn’t exactly amazing literature.
It feels like regurgit I originally found FlyLady online in a quest to get more organized at home, and at first I enjoyed her system. If you never run out of gas on the side of the road, or burst into tears at your hopelessly messy kitchen, or stare at your bathroom wondering how it got so gross, you’ll find her advice so common sense that it’s just not worth it. I’m not an English major, mind you, but I suppose I thought in book form there would at least be an editing process to remove those typos.
If I end up trapped flylaey the kids in my 3 year old’s room, keeping them from making each other cry, then I’ll straighten up his room and put away his laundry and change his sheets, since I am there.
It’s all I thought it would be and more!! My kitchen sink is generally shiny clean–and apparently that is huge with the author. It had been home to the entir I have a love-hate relationship with the FlyLady.
She never mentions the disorder by name, but she clearly describes a lot of the symptoms and her organizational methods are clearly aimed at helping people who have trouble staying focusing on what needs to be done.
I have noticed a marked difference in my home and my life since I’ve started implementing the FLYLady’s suggestions. How do you know? I loved a lot of the things she said, and I am trying to incorporate some of them – like her control journal mapping out her weekly and daily chores. I’m certainly not born organized, but I’m not competing to be on the next season of Hoarders either.
She runs an email list, that is the real backbone of maintaining her system until and unless you feel prepared to “wing it” on your own. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The part of me that is content to keep house and create beauty in my dwelling who needs a profession is so into this book.
I tried the idea of doing things routinely kind ofbut with a 3 year old and a baby, I got interrupted every 3 minutes by something.
I lik This book gave me some really good ideas to improve the cleanliness and order in my home and to make it more habitual. Cilley reminded me of a Charlotte Mason principle: I didn’t really find much. Do flylasy little bit of detail cleaning every day, and things won’t pile up on you.
I’m not sure whether reading this book will impact my cleaning style or not. Okay, yes it’s a little sexist and the Christian musing is a little startling for such a secular topic as home organization, but this book is pretty remarkable for simple principles like 1 stop whining, 2 short, regular housework is better refflections stressful bursts, and 3 enjoy your life and relax.
I’m really enjoying your book. She breaks this flykady to simple steps that not only include emptying the sink, but explaining how to empty the sink.
