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
We are in Zone 1 this week! This Zone includes the Entrance, Front Porch and the Dining Room. Your mission for today is to take 10 minutes to get rid of the hotspots that gather in this area. The junk mail, newspapers, shoes, jackets etc, that seem to get stuck in a holding pattern when you set them down and plan to get back to them. It is amazing how inviting the entrance area can be when there is not a bunch of STUFF everywhere. Grab a trash bag first and toss what can be tossed. Then grab the jackets and shoes and deliver them to their homes. I promise this makes a huge difference!
FlyLady RebeccaZone 1 Mission #2 Tuesday
Today your mission is to sweep off your front porch, shake out your door mats and wipe down your front door. Hopefully today is a beautiful day for you to be outside for a few moments and to enjoy a little sunshine. Get rid of the twigs and dirt on the front porch and use a little general purpose cleaner to clean up your front door. We have a tendency to forget this area and yet it is the first thing that we see when we go through the door. Reward yourself for a job well done with a tall glass of water and spend a few moments just to enjoy the day.
FlyLady RebeccaZone 1 Mission #3 Wednesday
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.
FlyLady RebeccaZone 1 Mission #4 Thursday
We are still going to work in the dining room today. Take 15 minutes and work some more on your de-cluttering as we did yesterday. Once again toss anything that can be tossed and put away anything that can be put away. We are working towards the dining room being a dining room and not a storage and pile up area. Keep reminding yourself that you are going to change your home 15 minutes at a time.
FlyLady RebeccaZone 1 Mission #5 Friday
Dear Friends:This is our last day in Zone 1, today is a choose your own mission day. Set your timer for 15 minutes and do something that needs to be done in the area of Zone 1. If you need to vacuum, dust or do a 27 fling, go for it! Take the time to just get something done! Remember, we do today what we can do and then a little more tomorrow. We are taking Babysteps together!
