I Fell Off The Fly Wagon

A few years back I had a friend tell be about Flylady, she is this wonderful woman that teaches women to clean, cook, and organize their homes ALL without perfection.
She has a great calendar that changed my life, and while I might be late to things I never forget them because it's written down on my calendar.

The house can get out of control quick, but if you do a little each day it's manageable.
For instance: The kitchen. If I don't get anything else cleaned this part of the home always does!
It brings me a little peace of mind to walk into a clean kitchen.  I don't feel overwhelmed by the other stuff when it's clean.

I've never been good at organizing and probably never will be. But keeping things thrown away and put up helps tremendously when I do sit down to organize something.  Like, when the kids come home from school, I go through their folders and I keep the really "special" things and toss the rest. Cause come on, are they or me really gonna care about a math sheet 20 years down the road? Not likely.

Do a load of laundry everyday, even if it's a small one. This will save you so much time.

Before company comes over, wipe over just what they will see!!!  Don't worry about every nook and cranny. Your company is coming over to visit with you, not to do an inspection.

And finally,{ and there are a ton more ideas on her website but these are the ones that stuck} make a menu and grocery list whether it's for the week or month. DO IT!! You will save so much time and money on this one. I seriously don't know how I did it before the menu and list. 

Well, I do, but you don't want to know...it was ugly. That was the old me, and the new me makes a list.

I would love to hear about your time and money saving ideas. Do you have any good ones, you'd like to share?
