I think I fall somewhere between the reviewers who love or hate this book. While I give it an unqualified thumbs up, that's not to say I like the style. I don't. I am spiky, cynical, irreligious and unsentimental. I cringe when Marla talks about "blessing the world" and "purple puddles" and her "DH". But here's the thing. This book works.
I am not a Stepford wife - I'm a senior executive for a national organisation and I have no family at all, no parents, siblings, partner or children - not even a pet. Because I have absolutely no time for myself and no priorities apart from work, my house was utter chaos. Thanks to Marla Cilley it is now livable and I am able to have friends over without drowning in shame and am gradually reclaiming my life away from the office.
This book contains practical ideas that made me completely rethink my approach to my home. I am not cleaning out of moral duty or to please someone else, but because I deserve a nice place to live. The concept that it is better to do something imperfectly than never to start completely changed my thinking. And permission not to finish - to just do 15 minutes worth and stop - has made a huge difference to my life.
And while I don't like the syrupy stuff, I also suspect that someone without that homespun sweetness could not or would not have written this book and offered this help. So I am just grateful, and Marla can be as religious and as honeyed as she damn well likes, because I truly appreciate what this book has helped me do, and only an idiot throws out a rare gift because the wrapping doesn't suit them - particularly when it is genuinely well meant.

Overall the FlyLady system is good & can easily be modified to suit just about anyone's schedule. Like everything there are pros & cons.
*The suggestion of a daily 'chore/to do' schedule works well for me. Some days more gets done than others - but I can keep better track & reprioritize as needed & as time allows.
*If you have a tremendously cluttered house & don't know where to begin - this would be a great book for you.
*Nice selection of cleaning tips.
*Simple suggestions on how to reorganize that people can truly use
Cons:
*Everyone is encouraged to adapt the advice to your needs, but if you don't modify it to suit your lifestyle then it will just seem like way too much to do. I think this is why many people get frustrated.
*I don't have a tremedous amount of clutter so a lot of it just doesn't apply to me.
*The cutsey acronyms/catch phrases, religious references, being told you must wear shoes & have a shiny sink will not sit well with everyone.
*The web site offers just about everything the book does for free.
My 2 cents:
**Borrow the book from a library or check out the web site for free.
**Take what you can use from the system & just leave the rest.

If you're reading this review, you're probably born disorganized and been losing ground ever since;) Or perhaps you should be folding laundry, making the kids lunch or figuring out what's going to be on the dinner table tonight, especially since you took that mystery meat out of the freezer.
Well, this is the book for you. Marla Cilley's mantra is "you can do anything for 15 minutes" and doggone it, she's right. This isn't one of those quicky fixes that is so often put out by folks whose ideas of straightening up the living room is fanning the magazines out in a nice display on the coffee table. This is for folks that are ear deep in junk (or deeper) and need to get out from under the load of it.
Her plan is simple and is based loosely on "The Sidetracked Sisters" works. You take 15 minutes to straighten out an area. I know, I know, you're saying "15 minutes! that doesn't even hit on it!" but it's just a beginning. You learn that you don't have to do everything perfect and you don't have to wait until the kids move out or you get that burst of energy you've been hoping for - you just get up and do it.
Sounds simple, right? So why do you need _this_ book? Because if it were that simple, you would have done it already. Because you need somebody who has been there to help walk you out of there.
Because getting rid of the clutter has a ripple effect in your life. Because if you read this far, you know you're searching for the answer for your problem. This isn't an easy fix, but your home didn't get to be a mess in one day and it will take more than one day to declutter...unless you_really_ want to maintain the life you're living.
And you know you don't - so buy it and work the system. You'll probably miss not having mystery meat for dinner, but it's such a small price to pay;)
