I get the emails, but am too slovenly to do the actual housework. I've tried, but it only lasts 3 days before I give up.

I think flylady is great minus the shoes and all the emails.

I get more out of reading the site, minus the emails. I get way more done when I use a plan like flylady.

Not 'signed up', but do check the site for ideas. The overall concept is a good one, focus on a spot, get a little bit done at a time. (but I'm not into the shoes thing either)

I'm still decluttering, but have also been able to maintain some of the main trouble spots (entry way, kitchen, living room, dining room). Now working on the rest of the house. Biggest problem is that the boys need to cooperate!!

I like the lists I see on pinterest that have you do one thing a day over 40 days. After I decluttered, If i can do that one thing a day, it really makes a difference in the long run.

Donít get to the end of your life and find that you lived only the length of it; live the width of it as well.†

I'm actually using the Sidetracked Home Executive. Fly lady sent me way too much stuff when I tried it years ago. I like the chore system that SHE uses a lot, especially since I have 5 kids.

Plus, I hate shoes.

My kids won't get with the program either, the reason I can't do anything without my shoes is because I have club foot, congenital hip dysplysia and siatic nerve palsy and I can't walk without assitance with my shoes and a cane I'm suppose to be in a wheelchair but I'm stubborn. My husband puts my shoes on because I'm not suppose to bend
