Another thing I like about Flylady is that she has some really great cleaning tools available for purchase. I am going to tell you which ones I would love to have in case my DEAR HUSBAND reads this and wants to buy them for me. (I have been placed on a.......ahem..........spending freeze, so I can't just click over and buy them for myself. Mother's Day, however, is just around the corner!!) OK..............I have read several testimonials about the Rubba Scrubba and think that it would be a great cleaning tool to have. A main use in my own house for this tool would be getting the cat hair off the carpeted stairs, although from what I can tell there are MANY other uses for this tool. Also on my wish list is this Feather Duster. Everyone writes in to Flylady and RAVES about this duster. I have never owned a Feather Duster before and it sounds like this one would last forever if cared for properly. So if DH is reading this........please know I don't want a cheap knock-off duster..........just the real deal, baby. Ostrich feathers all the way! If you are reading this and happen to own a Flylady feather duster PLEASE leave a comment. I would love to know if it's worth the $$$ (I'd also love to hear from you if you have the Rubba Scrubba!).
In addition to doing the daily Swish and Swipe routine (described in this post), I am trying to keep my sink shiny (as described in the post I linked to above) and to do a little daily de-cluttering. Within the last week, I've already taken two BIG loads of donated items to our community storehouse. I am purging like crazy and it feels SO good. Once every room is decluttered, it will be so much easier to keep it clean. I am also hoping to add the Weekly Home Blessing Hour to my week. I may break it down into 10 minutes a day instead of doing the whole hour at once. To read more about this concept, click here........you will need to scroll down to find the description of the Weekly Home Blessing Hour.
Finally, I am planning to create a Control Journal as recommended by Flylady. I had one of these a few years ago, but didn't fully use it as I could/should have. So.........that's on my to-do list.
Edited at 9:22 p.m.: DH didn't notice the pristine nature of the kitchen trash can when he emptied it tonight. Oh well.............
