Time to get organised.

I have reached one of those times in life when I have come to think that enough is enough!

I keep muddling through with no sense of organisation and direction.

I've never been much good at housework, but things are out of hand even by my lax standards.

Junk mail has piled up, not just in one place either but wherever it happened to be put down when I opened it.

My wardrobe is full to bursting with clothes that are either too big or too small, and there is nowhere to put the things that do fit me.

Everywhere I look there is clutter, clutter and more clutter...

and I am fed up with it!

So time to make a stand.

Time to have a plan.

Stop saying "I'll do it my October break" - Let's get real it's just too big a problem to be tackled in just one or two days, it's growing worse by the day and needs to be tackled NOW!

There's only one thing for it...


I'm joining the Weekly Flylady Thread over at Moneysaving Expert.

I'm aiming to start low so that I do it and don't become disheartened too quickly, so for this week I'm aiming for Level 1 only.

I'll let you know how I get on - wish me luck!


  1. Flylady scares the beejesus out of me. I admire the principle behind it but the women on that thread all terrify me - they're the type that actually move furniture to hoover underneath it and clean the bathroom every day *shudders*

  2. I know exactly how you feel. I am drowning in 'stuff' and it's so very depressing. Let's make a stand together!!!

  3. My thoughts exactly! (We should compare photo evidence!) Good luck to us both:)

  4. Ohh Alex - never will I get to the stage when I actually move furniture to hoover underneath, or clean any room everyday :D, I'm just not made for that kind of dedication to housework. Just need to do something to get started and a bit more organised. Hippyhat & Keshling a united stand is certainly what we need! Thanks for the ggod luck messages too - I think I'll need it.

  5. I’m terrible with housework. To be honest I keep telling myself that one day I will grow up and be the perfect little housewife. But in reality that isn’t as simple as it sounds.
    Me and my boyfriend are out of the house all day at work, so only have the weekends to tidy up and do the cleaning, which is much resented when really all we want to do at weekends is relax. It’s a tough one, when I am forever cluttering the house up, but I long to have a bit of time to just sort it all out once and for all xxx

  6. I've heard a lot about flylady recently. Good luck!! x
