Well we have come a long ways. I hope these threads helped you in some way. I have saved copies of all of these threads so maybe we can do this again in January. I will be linking to these threads in the daily threads in case someone joins us later on. Keep up the good work!

Morning Routine

  • Get up and make your bed

  • get dressed to lace-up shoes, hair, face

  • Swish and Swipe your bathroom

  • Eat breakfast, drink water, and take meds and vitamins

  • Recognize negative voices and change them

  • Reboot your laundry

  • What’s for dinner?

  • Put out your Hot Spots for two minutes

  • Five-minute Room Rescue (pick a room). Set your timer and go!

  • Spend 15 Minutes decluttering each day. You can’t organize clutter!

  • Look at your Control Journal. Your Post-It Notes remind you

  • Read Your FlyLady Emails as a reward for doing your morning routine.


Afternoon Routine

  • Eat lunch and drink your water

  • Take a few minutes to relax

  • Start Dinner remember the side dishes

Before-Bed Routine

  • Keep your sink shining

  • Lay out your clothes for tomorrow

  • Put in a load of laundry

  • Check calendar for tomorrow’s dinner! Pull out of freezer.

  • Put out your Hot Spot.

  • Drink your water and take evening medications and supplements

  • Look at your Control Journal check list.

  • Time for bed; consider yourself tucked in!

Need more inspiration?

Reminder tomorrow  we are starting a “build your Control Journal” series.

If you are cleaning around your house and want to join us on the building a control journal series on tomorrow, be sure to set aside these items:

  • A notebook/binder

  • White or colored paper (you choose)

  • Blank dividers

  • “ABC” dividers for addresses and phone numbers

  • Monthly dividers for seasonal reminders, such as birthdays and when to change the furnace filter

  • Sheet protectors (not the matte finish unless you already have some; they are hard to erase)

  • Dry erase markers in your favorite color

  • Some kind of calendar for your schedule

  • A small note pad for making lists or post-it notes

  • A zippered pouch (for stamps, paper clips, pens, and other small items)

Now I don't have all of these. I have a home journal and a everyday, out of the house journal. I found that combining them was too much so separating them has helped me a bit.


I have a binder, dividers, a steno pad that is 8.5 by 11, and sheet protectors. That is it. I guess I also have pens and alcohol swabs but I don't really count those as I need them for my other journal too.

Remember you don’t have to be perfect. Just do the best you can everyday and it will all be good in the end!

I'm going to attempt to use some decorative file folders instead of a binder. I have them ready to go in a pretty desktop file on my kitchen desk. I bought the file folders some time ago without any real need for them, so maybe now I can finally put them to good use and enjoy them every day. If the file folder setup doesn't work, I've got a binder at the ready.


(ETA: Another reason I'm using file folders is because I'm trying to do a Getting Things Done reboot at the same time I'm doing the Flylady reboot.)

You can always punch holes in the file folders and use them as dividers too! LOTS better then what I currently have that are all yellow... or the white one that still have the markings on them for when I used them in my IVF folder. LOL
