Someday 1 - 7, 2011
This week we are in Zone 4: The Master Bedroom
This month's Habit is: Swish and SwipeZone 1: Mission #1 Monday
Dear Friends:We are going to have a multi room mission today, it might take you longer than 15 minutes to do it, so set your timer for each room and FLY through it!
For the Front Porch, Entrance and Dining Room, put out the fires that are burning in your hot spots. Get rid of the pile of shoes by the front door, get rid of the pile of junk mail and put away the magazines and school papers that are piled on the dining room table.
They are smoldering so get to it!Zone 2: Mission #1 Tuesday
Dear Friends:After reading so many of the SHE Shouldn'ts on the website, I decided that your mission for the kitchen today would be to check your stove tops and ovens for things that should not be there. You are not to be using your oven as a storage place for ANYTHING! Check the tops of your stove and the area around it to make sure that you do not have anything that will melt or catch on fire. Now, once you have done this, grab a rag and some general purpose cleaner and wipe down the top of the stove, the knobs and the door of the oven. Have fun and be safe!
FlyLady RebeccaZone 2: Mission # 2 Wednesday
Dear Friends:It is Anti-Procrastination day we are diving into the refrigerator! First toss out any leftovers that have gotten pushed to the back and have now started to turn into a science project. Second, check the fruit/vegetable drawers and toss what no longer is appealing to eat. Third, check the meat and cheese drawer, check the expiration dates on your items in there and toss what needs to go. Fourth, check out the doors of the fridge, toss the empty condiment jars and bottles that always seem to magically go back into the fridge when empty. Last, grab a damp rag and wipe down the shelves. Do not take every single thing out of your refrigerator and then take the shelves out to clean them. Just wipe them down. How many times have we decided to tear the fridge apart and three hours later we would rather move out than ever do it again.
Don't let yourself get sidetracked, have fun and enjoy your sparkling refrigerator!
FlyLady RebeccaZone 2: Mission #3 Thursday
Dear Friends:Today I want you to spend 5 minutes and check on the cleaning supplies and things under your sink. Are there things that you don't need? Are there items you have run out of and need to put on your list? Now, what is up with your dish rags and sponges? This mission is quick and simple! Today is errand day so put what you need on the list and pick that up when you go out today.
Flylady RebeccaZone 2: Mission #4 Friday
Dear Friends:Today is our last day in the Kitchen!! For today I want you to grab your broom and your mop. Sweep your kitchen floor really well and then mop. There are several ways to mop a kitchen floor and no real wrong way. Hot soapy water and wipe. There is no "perfect" mop and no "perfect" way to do it. Just Do It!
Don't obsess and get caught up in perfection! It won't matter if you don't mop the way your Mother did as long as you do it. Remember House work done incorrectly still blesses your family!FlyLady Rebecca
