Zone 5: Mission #1 Monday

Dear Friends,

We are in Zone 5 for today only. Lets make the most of it and declutter for 15 minutes. If you have been with FlyLady for a while and have moved to the detailed cleaning in this area that is great! Go down the list and do what you can for 15 minutes. If you need a refresher go to the Zone 5 detailed cleaning list on

Zone 1: Mission #1 Tuesday

Dear Friends,

We are in Zone 1 for 4 days this week; that is the Front Porch, the Entrance area, and the Dining Room.

Today I want you to spend 15 minutes getting rid of anything that does not belong on your porch or front entrance way. Things that have gotten thrown in a corner, along the wall, or even on the floor. The things that you almost don't even see because they have just become part of the space, get it out! If it does not belong there, then out it goes!

This does not mean that you have to spend three hours in your porch, do what you can do for 15 minutes.

Zone 1: Mission #2 Wednesday

Dear Friends:

We are headed into the dining room today, it is anti-procrastination day. Your mission for today is to spend 15 minutes decluttering your dining room. It does not matter what you get rid of, just get rid of anything that does not belong in the dining room. Once again start with a trash bag and toss, toss, toss! If you still have time, then grab things that need to be put away and do that. Set your timer and don't overwhelm yourself. This is all about babysteps.

Zone 1: Mission #3 Thursday

Dear Friends:

Today you are to sweep your front porch area around your front door. Shake out your welcome mats and wipe down your front door. This makes a huge difference in how your home looks. We have a tendency to neglect this area and yet it is the first thing that people see when they come to your home.

Spend 15 minutes taking care of this!

Zone 1: Mission #4 Friday

Dear Friends:

Today is our last day in Zone 1. Today's mission is very simple! Grab a broom and a vacuum cleaner. Set the timer! 5 minutes in each area. A quick sweep or vacuum in the entrance area. Last dash around the dining room with a broom or the vacuum. This is just a quick mission that makes you feel so great. When there are no dust bunnies chasing you or gritty floors your home just feels better! You do not have to get overwhelmed by this. Do not move furniture around or get sidetracked. Just a quick maintenance sweep and vacuum.

Congratulations on a job well done this week! We are always so proud of you! "This is FlyLady's List that has grown by leaps and bounds..." Copyright 2001 - 2014 FlyLady and Company, Inc.
