with repitition comes efficiency...
it isn't so much of...how many minutes really...it is just a way of life..lol...
You start off with routines. You do the same thing every day, and SOOOO there isn't the mad dash of having to clean the bathroom for company, cuz it is getting done "nearly" every day.
You tackle a spot, her's is the kitchen sink...and MAKE IT YOURS...you get it all sparkly and clean...and the idea is that, since you are taking pride in that sink, (or what ever you pick), it will spread. Now your sink is purdy, you don't want your counters messed up...and so forth.
It is overwhelming at first, and if you go to the website, she gives you jobs to do, one each day and build on it. Babysteps I think it is called?
But in 20 mins I can have the bathroom Swished and swiped, I get shower/dressed, make up and shoes on, I pick up a load of laundry, toss it in the washer, get breakfast ready for the kids if they need it, wipe down counters after breakfast, and be out the door.
You get reminders to do nearly EVERYTHING> Your desk is called a "Hot Spot". When just ONE thing gets put there, it explodes like it is on fire. So multiple times a day, you go to your Hot Spots, and take care of them.
As far as being anal???? We are all SHE's Side Tracked Home Executives...this system WORKS...like with everything if you work it. But the language they speak, I understand.
I came from a house that both parents were BO (Born Organized), and I just didn't fit in. At ALL. This has taught me what is appropriate, what isn't in the realm of housekeeping. But also it has taught me to FLY...Finally Love Myself.
She ISN'T for everyone...but she sure is for me and over 200,000 people that are on the list
It has really enabled me to be more efficient in what I do, and therefore KNIT MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
