Hotspot No More - Before And After Pics

Following on from my previous post on Fly Lady, this afternoon's next step was to choose a hotspot (a spot where alot of things get dumped and builds up quickly) and set the timer for 2 minutes, and, well put it out!

The kids helped me with this, quite happily and when the timer went off even though it was a small job, I felt I'd accomplished something huge, right now my desk is still clean except for a tissue that one of the kids has left, oh and my camera which presently is connected to the PC.

I was a bit sceptical about posting any photos on here, but I thought 'hey why not!' it's all part of the process and I'm going to use my blog to track that insha Allaah (God Willing). But being the inconsistent person I am I may slip now and then, I'm hoping I wont but if I do I'll just have to jump back in and take off from where I was.

OK so here goes, the before and after pics!!

I'd like to point out that not all that mess in the first photo is mine ! I do have 4 messy kids!!

Would love to hear if anyone else is also using Fly Lady's routines and how far you've got.

I love fly lady. I would be much worse off without her routines although I just don't have time to do them all. I'm now learning to delegate chores, but it's not easy. At least we know what we should do even if we can't get to it!!

Hi Amber, Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment..........

I definitely think it makes life alot easier, and helps to be a bit more organised. With kids it's good to get them involved, mine love it when I start the timer, although not sure how long that will last! lol
