FLYing Basics: Day 1 Shine Your Sink

Today is the 1st day of a wonderful journey! We are going to babystep our way through the basics of the Flylady cleaning system. In January of 2012, some fellow Flybuddies and I worked through Flylady’s Beginner Babysteps (found at in honor of my 10 year anniversary of following Flylady. Together we began to create habits in our home one babystep at a time. Now, I’d like to share that journey with you. For the next 31 days, we will work slow and steady to build habits that will transform your home and streamline it, hopefully giving you more time to play! I have adapted these steps for my own use and to help mentor my friends in the basics of Flying. Please check out the original steps and all Flylady support materials at Ready to begin?

Today’s Mission: Shine your sink.

This is our Anchor step. Please read the instructions on giving your sink a good shine at Make that sink sparkle! After today, the term “shiny sink” means an empty sink. Every day you will be working toward dealing with your dishes after every meal. This is our most important step. If you end the month with just this one habit locked in you will be a success. Throughout the 31 days, if nothing else, if your sink is shiny, YOU WIN!! See you tomorrow!

P.S. And if you miss a day during the steps, just keep jumping back in. You’ll notice that most of the days repeat the steps we have already done. We will be reinforcing these habits as we go along. Hope you have a great time.
