Who’s joining me for Ready, Set, September? We start our 5-day Virtual (Re)Treat today! Are you packed and ready to go? The first video is posted below! Grab your notebook and pen! Why are we doing this? Because daily self-care is the key to a joyful life and a cozy, clean home!

Rah, rah, rah!

Virtual Retreat: self-care and Flylady

Here’s the packing list I mentioned in the video…

PACKING LIST

It would be great if you could bring the following items with you to our Virtual (Re)Treat. No worries if you don’t have them, absolutely not essential. And please don’t buy anything new, just use what you have available! I recommend choosing your outfit the evening before, so you are ready to jump right into our Virtual (Re)Treat. Okay, here we go…

  • Notebook or a few sheets of paper.
  • Pen or pencil.
  • A timer (egg timer, kitchen timer) but you could also use your phone.
  • A few basic cleaning supplies: a duster/rag, cleaning spray, mop. (You can see what I keep in my cleaning caddy in this very old video!)
  • A container to store your “pamper items”. (Remember, please don’t buy anything! Use an old basket, tote bag, box.) Don’t know what to put into your pamper basket? See below!
