Woo hoo, I’m ready with my cleaning/declutter list for Flylady zone 5, the living room! This time, in order to save on printing ink (said the canny Scot…), I’ve printed out my lists in black ink and put coloured paper in the printer. If you don’t have a printer/don’t want to print, save/take a screenshot of the list and keep it on your phone. I’ve based my lists on my living room and things to declutter in the zone. Remember to adapt – make these lists work for you!

I printed my cleaning list and declutter list and put them back to back in a plastic sheet. Ready to cross off the tasks as I go! During the week I keep the list in my cleaning caddy. That way I can use any spare minutes I have to do one of the tasks. No more marathon cleaning sessions…do you hear me?! LOL! The aim is not to cross everything off the list this week but to keep moving forward in this zone and get something (anything!) done.

And here are some ideas to get you started! Simply copy/paste on to your own blank document.
