Have you heard about the SHE (Sidetracked Home Executive) 3x5 get organized system for your home and life?
For some reason, there has been a wonderful surge of SHEs coming back to using 3x5 cards, and most are Flybabies. One of the reasons is they know (because they tell us) that 3x5 cards are the best tangible way to give you direction, which is the only thing you lack. They also are an excellent tool for delegating.
This from a senior SHE who has come back to the cards:
"Pam I used your system when my six kids were young and we were so busy! It really worked until I fell off the wagon for some reason…probably when Fred lost his job and we had to move to another state. I wasn’t happy because I missed my parents and was sad that they were missing their grandchildren.
"I flopped around for a couple years with the Flylady, but she was constantly telling me she understood why I was in a mess…a bossy mother and a bad childhood. She couldn’t be further from the truth. My mom was the greatest mom and she effortlessly created a happy home for my brothers and sisters and I.
"I found you again and I felt excited to make out new cards for who my husband and I are today. No kids at home, but grandkids coming out all over the place. I get to play more and I’m using 3x5s for that as well as housework. My husband is great and he appreciates the cards instead of my voice telling him what needs to get done."
If you set up the SHE system and it worked for you and your family, but then you quit using it, YOU’RE NORMAL! Nobody sticks to anything forever.Things happen. Life happens. And by your very nature, you get sidetracked by those “happenings,” and life presses you on and pulls you in many directions.
Here’s a video clip of Flylady telling about how successful she was with the SHE get organized system when her child was young and then what happened.
Being organized is all about establishing routines and habits. The 3x5 index card is the perfect tool for direction and delegation and once the habit that's on a card is part of your routine, you can throw the card away. The system is so simple to set up and follow and you could be on top of running your household in no time. This is the perfect time to give it a try, because with the download of the cardfile system you also get the Slob Sister's De-junking Video!
