FlyLady, take me away!!!

Those of you that know me really well know that I am an EXTREMELY type A person.  I do not plan last minute.  I do not like things disorganized.  I hate clutter and like for things to be where they belong.

Those of you that know my husband know that he is THE EXACT opposite.  He doesn't care where he puts things, doesn't mind planning things last minute...it drives me insane!!!  I still love him (opposites really DO attract I guess!), but come on dude, throw me a bone here!  He even gets on to me when my type A-ness kicks in and I feel the need to pick up something while I'm in the middle of doing something else. 

I have enlisted the help of the FlyLady to assist me in decluttering and keeping my house neat - in an organized, type A fashion!  I've been getting her newsletter for a few weeks but haven't really done much until this week.  If you are interested click on the link to check out her website - each day you have a focus and each week you work on one "zone" of your house.  Today's focus is to plan ahead - plan out menu, wardrobe, etc, so I did that this morning - you'll get the menu tomorrow!  This week we are working in zone 3 - the master bathroom and one other room.  My chosen room is the spare bathroom downstairs.  If you are a Cozi user, you can upload FlyLady to-do lists to your Cozi organizer (and if you are not a Cozi user, click here to check it out!). 

Once you take a look, you will see how a type A person such as myself could fall in love with these tools!!!  It's such a sense of accomplishment to check off one thing from my to-do list!!!

Now, if only the FlyLady had tips on getting your husband to help out a bit more...
