Default Weekly Flylady Thread 10th December 2012

Link to last weeks list

Welcome to the weekly Flylady thread. If you need help organising your week when it comes to housework, or just the motivation to do the dreaded housework tasks you have to do, come and join us, hopefully make it a little easier. You never know, you might start to enjoy it!

There are three levels per day with Level 1 being very basic it has been requested that this is just one task per day, Level 2 in the middle, up to Level 3 which is more advanced and time consuming. If you want to do level 2 you add the tasks on level 1 with the level 2 tasks, if you want to do level 3 you add the tasks on, easy peasy. Choose a level to aim for but be realistic, if youve got a busy day on or are just starting etc aim for level one, if you get higher then great, if not then not to worry its only suggestions. Every room comes back around next week. Trust me some days I'll only be doing level one myself.

THESE LISTS ARE ONLY SUGGESTIONS AND NOT A MUST DO LIST, ALWAYS WELCOME TO POST AND FOLLOW YOUR OWN.

Also adding a declutter mission each day. Another one where its up to you if you want to do it or if you need to. This follows requests from members who are looking to declutter. Fling boogies, hotspot clearing, cupboard sorts, drawer sorts etc will all be on this list. Any problems with this of any suggestions do please let me know.

A few of the basics before we start the week

Hotspots are any areas which if one thing gets put there, loads of other things follow!

Daily routines are anything you need to do on a daily basis like washing, swish and swipe kitchen and bathroom, ironing, making beds, vacuuming high traffic areas, making meals etc

Night-time routines are all things which make getting ready in the morning easier, preparing clothes for the next day, making lunches, swish & swipes of the kitchen and tidying the living room before you go to bed plus personals like shower/brush teeth etc.

27 Fling Boogie - stick on some loud music, grab a binbag and whizz around the house finding 27 items that can go out with the rubbish, recycling, for charity shop, basically anything that will stop it cluttering your home.

Swish and swipe means have a quick wipe over an area such as a sink or toilet to prevent the build up of dirt. This is usually done on a daily basis

The kitchen is exactly what I need. The sort out last week has helped. I struggle day to day to keep it looking ok. But I'm work in progress

So the surfaces need cleaning
Need to catch up on washing that's on the kitchen floor

Declutter 300 things in December challenge, 9/300. Clear the living room. Re-organize storage

Hi Folks I've been awol for ages , but really need to get back to flying. The house needs a good sort out and clean, especially now in the run up to the silly season . I've got my tree down from the loft ready to decorate and as we've never had a real tree we're going to get one on tuesday for the lounge . Now I need to get motivated into getting it all done.

I have a RIDICULOUS amount of wrapping to do this week as well. I will have to dedicate an hour a day to that as well. Every year I say I will wrap as I go along. And every year, I don't!

Natty, thanks for the list.

Take care all

Ooookay, so I tend to go awol half way through the week; but I'm definitely in it again (and fortunately most rooms aren't toooo bad from last week's effort, although the bedrooms are a disgrace)! I have visitors this week so really need to get on top of things.

Morning All

Yes I'm awake at stupid o'clock!

I'm on a sleepover next weekend and I've got to wrap around 20 presents for that at some point this week. Other than that it's just a normal week! Cubs tonight, football Wed, Beavers & Scouts Thurs, sleepover Fri. Actually Friday's completely written off as I've got to give my dad a lift straight after work, get my stuff for the sleepover, have some tea, walk the dog and be there for about 6.30.

I've done no ironing this weekend so I think I'm going to get up in a min and do a HHI as the kids have got no uniform ironed.

Thanks natty for taking over the helm with dusty.

Have a good day all

Hugs

Good morning juliejim and everyone Into double figures for December already: where do the days go?

I was up at silly o'clock too - I have toothache that started on Friday evening, and the paracetamol that I took last night obviously wasn't enough to dull the pain to give me a good night's sleep I shall have to ring the dentist as soon as the surgery opens. Not a good start to the week, but it can only get better... I hope.

I've already made DH's packed lunch and checked my eB@y sales - two more items to pack immediately, and I'm awaiting two other payments - plus 8 more items finish today, of which one has a bid and 3 others have watchers. I'm well pleased (but not about the toothache!)

DH has had his model painting stuff all over the lounge and dining room this weekend, so it hasn't been worth trying to clean round him. He *will* put it away before he goes off to work this morning I got my own back by spreading knitting things all over the coffee table - DGD1 wants dolls clothes for Xmas, and the first set (a pram suit) is nearly done, but I'd forgotten how fiddly 4-ply is and it's taken me longer than I'd expected. The rest will definitely be DK

This week is looking less "bitty" than last week was, so better for flying (I didn't achieve a great deal again last week but we were both out a lot of the time so nobody saw the state of the house). We're working at our local heritage railway all day Wednesdays and Saturdays as volunteers on the Santa Specials
I want to put up our tree on Friday, so the downstairs has all got to be cleaned thoroughly by then, and the upstairs has to be ready for next week (and I have to be very well organised) for the two days when I shall be looking after DGS1 and DGS2 including their first sleepover here

I have already cleared the kitchen worktops, so will now go and empty the DW, wipe the oven and do what else I can before breakfast without waking DH up just yet - he needs his beauty sleep!. Emergency dental appointment and GUAG permitting, I'll carry on flying during the day and start on the Christmas cards and wrapping this evening while DH is out.

(((Hugs))) and spoons to all who need them, especially LW and SB.

BTW DUsty I'll join in the ironing challenge as I do every year! Don't always achieve it though!

Ionafan - hope the toothache's sorted out quickly.

Morning all

DS1 away to work
DS2 like a zombie, didn't sleep well
DS3 waiting to see how well he is when he wakes up

Packed lunches, mogs breakfast and wiping the table first, our bed already stripped.

The birds of sadness may fly overhead but don't let them nest in your hair

Morning!

I'm in for the week again. Thanks for organising, Natty and thanks for last weeks, DK.

Welcome newcomers! Getting sorted for Christmas?

I'm working from home today once I get the tots away to nursery, so as usual I made a (small) start last night, and will do some at lunchtime.

Not me for the ironing challenge, I tend to not iron as much as poss, but the essentials are done as they dry. Nowhere to keep an ironing pile

Let's get cracking!
