I was doing so much better the beginning of the year but then I fell off of the bandwagon. I've been trying to do better lately. I have so much to do. My biggest problem is clutter. I need to get rid of a bunch of junk & I need to figure out a system to keep papers off of my island & counters. My basement is a pit. I'm not looking forward to tackling that but it really needs to be done. I'll be happy after I get to it and it will be nice to have more space to use to live in. Guess I should think about the fact that the basement is about 1/3 of the space of our house & we're paying for that in our house payments each month so mostly that money is just being thrown away since we don't use it.

How are the rest of you doing?

My basement is starting to take over again. I will be spending some time next week on it. We are having a new roof put on (YES, in winter--that's what happens when suddenly it starts to leak ) so I will be stuck in the house for a few days. Might as well do some heavy cleaning-out on those days.

Barb, sorry about your roof. That's a big expense, especially right after X-mas.

Mindy, I'm trying to look on the bright side. There will be a dumpster in my driveway. I will take advantage of that! I might shovel DD's entire closet right out the window into the dumpster

Great idea! Maybe I should rent a dumpster to clean out my basement!

I am going to use freecycle as much as I can. It would be so much easier to rent a dumpster!

I had to jump back on the FlyLady bandwagon. After only a couple of days, I can see that it's making a difference A little bit here and there means a lot.

I love the flylady life, but when I am so busy I seem to forget all my lessons. I became a flybaby 7 years ago. Since then when my house is a mess, it does not take me long to get my house company ready.
