Simply overwhelmed to simply overjoyed in 15 minutes!

I am going to be very honest here....
When we got home tonight from all of our Easter activities this is what I faced in the kitchen!!!! YUCK!! I am no where near born organized and I chose to take an Easter afternoon nap rather than clean up the kitchen before we headed over to my in-laws..... So my procrastination has landed me here!
BEFORE:What am I to do? I have a sore arm, am tired, and have "mom's group" Bible study meeting at my house in the morning! YIKES! So, I decided to just put flylady to the test.... I chose to simple give it my all for 15 minutes and see if I can make a dent. What do you think:

After 15 minutes (I set my timer!):

Now that is simply amazing! If I ever doubted simply getting busy I won't again!
Simply giving my kitchen 15 minutes gave me this result! What else in life could I tackle 15 minutes at a time???? Now I don't feel overwhelmed and can go to bed with peace!


One thing I do tackle is my menu....
It is 5 o'clock.... What is for supper???

Are you kidding! 15 minutes only!! My husband cleans like that but he doesn't get the nitty gritty.

Ok, maybe I'll try the 15 minutes more often

That's a pretty huge dent!! The "15-minute decluttering" is about the only Flylady thing I do, but every time, I'm simply amazed at home much can be accomplished in such a short time!!! I try to have two or three of those each day. ("Try" being the operative word! I'm nowhere near 'born organized' either!!)

Simply awesome! I LOVE FlyLady! I am amazed what you can do in just 15 minutes. It's so true!

YES!!! I can get a lot done in a relative short amt. of time, too, if I don't get sidetracked and speed clean. It helps if the house is normally decluttered, too, then you are only dealing with the current mess at hand. GREAT JOB!!! Doesn't it feel so good?!
