Friendly aquaintances, yes. Friends? No.
Flylady is a great website for most women who enjoy keeping an orderly home and developing routines that keep things running smoothly.
Sure. If you like that sort of thing.
But I ask you....where's the sense of adventure? the thrill? The satisfaction in having everything done so easily?
Flylady's method has you rotate areas of your home so that every place in your house gradually gets tackled and cleaned inside out. Wimps. My method sets aside a "junk drawer" area, not to be touched for at least a month. It might be a coat closet, a pantry, or even a whole bedroom. This is where those careless items rest and build, simmering ominously while you obliviously add to the beast each time you fail to put things back "where they belong." Advanced users of my method can even maintain more than one of these areas, but it's not for the faint of heart.
Flylady's method requires 15 minutes of work in your designated zone each day. Namby Pambies. (I hope that means what I think it means.) My method leaves your zone alone for at least a month...until it requires 4 hours of sweating, crying, and maybe even a little swearing. But once finished, you will know that you have fought and you have conquered.
This morning, I couldn't see the top of that dryer. I had to re-stack the toppling items from the dryer-top in order to lift the washer lid. I had to push things out of the way to open the dryer door. But now look at it. Now THAT is housecleaning people. Housecleaning for the stalwart soul.
