Getting Started in Baby Steps


Shine your sink

This is your first task as a FlyBaby, and also the foundation of FlyLady. It all begins with a shiny sink!

The happy sense of fulfillment when you've successfully cleaned your sink.

Getting dressed to shoes

FlyLady believes that you feel and act differently when you are completely dressed with shoes on your feet, even if you’re not leaving the house. It makes you feel ready to go! Read FlyLady’s essay about why you should get dressed to shoes every day.

As FlyLady says, “Your home did not get dirty in one day, and it will not get clean in a day either.”

Declutter 15 minutes a day

FlyLady’s principle is that anyone can do anything for 15 minutes. Just set a timer and declutter something for 15 minutes, and then stop when the timer goes off!


Take regular breaks

Cleaning doesn’t need to be a marathon! Take 15-minute breaks after a round of decluttering to rest your mind, calm yourself, and plan what you want to do next.
