Meg, I have this problem....I buy the organizing books, and all the cool cleaning products, and it just SITS THERE. I use the same 3 or 4 things to clean and don't even think about all the other stuff.

I just ordered the book too!! I also ordered the one for getting ready for the holidays. I'm excited, it sounds like exactly what I need too! I certainly don't need another book to read either, but I'm going to give it a shot! Thanks for the tip!!

I too have a big problem with the extra book thing. I LOVE BOOKS! I just gave a bunch away, but it is hard!
We can start whenever. Today? Monday? I am easy!

The book seems really interesting..I've only gotten through the intro and the first chapter about drinking 8 cups of water. Cody is having a sleep over for his bday tomorrow i hope to get through the rest of the first part..I'm gonna like this now to stick with it through the holidays!! Monday sounds good...i have started trying to drink the water. Have you read the whole book??
Momszoo..did you get yours yet??

Not doing too badly on water, drink a fair bit anyway
lousy week for 20 min walks (I am spending as much time as possible in bed!)
Clean two HUGE piles from kitchen bench = to two drawers, so I'm giving myself a tick on that one.
Saved $5-00 for the week ~ OK I guess

Thumbs up Awesome Meg!!

I have done well this week too. I set up a jug with 72 oz of water in it, and make sure it is gone befor eI go wo bed. It has worked everyday. My drawer was my silverware drawer, and my walks have been Leslie Sansone video since it is COLD here.
Let me know how everyone else is doing.. we will move on to week 2.
Rock on!!

ok, this sounds interesting.

it is impossible to drink that much water a day in my opinion. i will be ok, if i manage 3 cups a day.

walk 20 minutes a day - taking ds to kg each day and pick him up makes about 20 minutes eash day walking

clean out one drawer - did that with my craft drawer. next i must attac my undies drawer.

save 2$ a day. in our currency it would be about 25kr (crown). it is lots of money - 1 litre of milk costs about 9 kr, loaf of white bread costs about 6 kr. so how can i save money? not spending or getting good deals? or putting loose change on piggy pank? i did buy t-shirt on sale this week. i paid 94,5 kr instead of 189 - so it was 50% off. was it a save or spending?

what is up for next week?

Hmm, this does sound interesting! I try to follow Flylady, but, I get so bored with it. It seems every time it comes around to a new zone, the tasks are the same one as what they were the last time we were in that zone.

Maybe this would be more helpful to me.
