Hello, I was a subscriber of FlyLady for one day. I'm looking for a list or some type of schedule that other moms use on a daily/weekly basis. What needs to be done each day, weekly, monthly.

Hi, Jitterbug!

I's made my own list and it isn't computerized, but you might like www.starorganizer.com if you lie=ke the idea of an e-mail list but don't want 77 a day. They only send out one.

Here are a couple other good sites:

Thank you! FlyLady was driving me bonkers. How are you expected to clean if you're constantly deleting e-mails from your inbox? Imagine my : when I went away for the weekend -- I guess it was punishment for leaving a dirty house.

I got tired of the million emails a day so I changed my flylady subscription to daily digest. Maybe that would work for you?

Hey Maggie - That second link in your post leads to a plant hardiness zone map from the National Arboretum. Useful info, but I'm guessing not what you meant to post there. :LOL

You might have better luck with daily/weekly lists by just checking out Flylady's website, rather than being a subscriber. I think she breaks it down in the Flying Lessons section. I can't stomach the kazillion daily e-mails, but I like a lot of her info. I found her book at the thrift store, and that's pretty inspirational too.

I second the mymessyhouse.com recommendation - that's another good site.

A good, but kind of overwhelming book - Home Comforts, The Art & Science of Keeping House by Cheryl Mendelson - breaks down daily, weekly & monthly schedules. Of course if you followed her recommendations you'd be a total slave to housework (the section on dust mites really skeeved me out) but it's a good starting point for trying to put some sort of schedule in place.

One of my new year's resolutions was to have better daily & weekly routines in place - I was inspired by Flylady, and created these printed sheets that I could check off different tasks - daily stuff, plus each day of the week had a bigger item (cleaning the bathrooms one day, mopping some floors another, etc.) They are great forms, but they are still sitting, entirely unused, in a binder somewhere - lol .
