Make Flylady'S Habit Of The Month Your Sparkstreak
Members Were Sparked
Every month FlyLady, who's system is free on www.flylady.net, has a monthly habit we work on all month long. It's also posted in the FlyLady Peace is Mine SparkTeam. How do you eat an elephant? One habit (bite) at a time. If you already have the monthly habit down, substitute something else you're working on.

Research has shown that it takes people approximately 28 days to pick up (or leave) a habit. Instead of making resolutions for the new year, why not aim to make a total of 12 resolutions for the whole year? Decide what change you want to make each month, and start on the first day of the new month! By the end of the month your resolution has become a habit and you can move on to the next one! This makes sustaining multiple resolutions easier.

Kids: Do "gifts for Santa", on Christmas Eve, they get to pick which toys to give to Santa, & leave the sack out along with Santa's cookies & milk. This makes them feel good about giving, & makes space in their room for the new.
Adults: Remember FlyLady's rule, 1 New Item In, Take 1 Old Item Out. That's only if your house, closets, and shelves are already decluttered. If they're crammed full & you need to declutter, however: 2 Out for each 1 New In.
