It's safe to say that nobody likes living in chaos. You can ask anyone, and they will tell you that coming home to a clean space is the goal of every homeowner. After all, it is much easier to relax and get comfortable when clutter is out of sight. 

In reality however, scrubbing and sweeping the floors on the daily isn't realistic—especially if you work a 9-to-5 job or you find homekeeping to be emotionally draining. If you can relate to any of these scenarios, today is your lucky day! We've found the answer to your home-related woes, and that is FlyLady

FlyLady is an online personal organization website that can help you unleash your inner domestic goddess. (The actual "FlyLady" of the website is Marla Cilley, a cleaning guru.) All you have to do is register, join the mailing list and wait to receive the daily FLYmail. This daily newsletter includes your FLYing lessons that will help you set up routines, work on certain tasks and put your home life in order. 

According to some fans of the website, FlyLady is full of suggestions that can help you establish good habits related to housekeeping while some skeptics think it's a gimmick. For us, the secret of FlyLady lies in the fact that it doesn't require you to do everything all at once. They believe that your home did not get dirty in one day, and it will not get clean in a day either. 

To give you a jumpstart, here are some FlyLady beginner tips we found on her website: 

1. Establish small routines then work up to more items. Don’t try to do a full-blown routine the very first day.

2. Consistency is key. You have to take your time in forming a routine. They do not happen overnight and is a result of tiny changes over several months. 

3. Take your time and enjoy the process. Don’t feel pressured to do it all at once.
