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!

  • Get up and make your bed

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.)
