I really love Flylady. I am laughing at the OP who felt like talking too much about it made her feel like a cult member, because I feel much the same way. :-) But it's really helped me let go of a lot of guilt issues about getting rid of things, a lot of anxiety about my house and my own abilities as a housekeeper, a lot of perfectionsim (although there's still a way to go on that.)
I don't do everything lockstep with Flylady, but I do agree that it makes life easier to have a basic schedule for cleaning, to do a little bit of decluttering at a time, to have routines established, etc. Once an area gets mostly decluttered and cleaned up it's not going to be "done forever". But I do sort of rotate through zones, so I will do more effort in one specific place, and then the next time I pass through there it's a lower, maintenance level of decluttering and cleaning, rather than a huge overwhelming wreck.
DH and I were talking about this at dinner last night, how much Flylady has really changed our approach and our life. I (we both) used to be waaay more disorganized and cluttery and my all-or-nothing approach made cleaning a huge ordeal. We used to really want a clean house but not know really how to get there, and we'd both together spend a huge proportion of every weekend cleaning. Now I clean less but my house is actually a lot cleaner, even with a kid! Neither of us did any cleaning this weekend, and there are some things around where they shouldn't be (toys, shoes, papers, etc.) but nothing that will take more than about 20 minutes for me to pick up and the house looks basically clean.
