what do you get for what you pay ?
do you just receive e-mails?
do you have to print your to do-lists at home from your own printer ?
does it come on paper in the regular mail ?
I'm curious about it but would like to know a little bit more about it before I pay anything ...
It's $8 for the year. I received a pdf and I just print out on my printer a week at a time. I use the weekly list. No emails.
For me, it keeps me on task at home and keeps my home presentable at all times. I already have a mostly decluttered home, so the 1/2 hour or so each week it calls to declutter is enough for me. I also am very good at acomplishing tasks much more so than the fly lady zone idea. It also often has other things in there - like next week - wash bathroom walls. As I said, I like how it breaks things down into simple tasks. Otherwise I look at the fingerprints on ALL my walls and feel overwhelmed....and then nothing gets done.
I have found that I can get my daily chores done by 10-10:30am. That includes getting my kiddos off to school in the morning, cleaning up breakfast etc.. I then have time for a cup of tea, email, read with youngest, or whatever. I take my youngest to Kindy at noon, go for a long walk with the dog, and then come home and shower. Usually have time for another cup of tea before walking to pick up kiddos from school. Pretty much my perfect day.
Ofcourse, I don't work during the week (usually) and my youngest is 6yrs old. Another reason I like this chore list is it is very light on the weekends, which is mostly when I work and if I happen to have the weekend off, I am free to hang with the family. I am sure it isn't for everyone, but it was truly a lifesaver because I found flylady to have quite a frantic feel to it.
