WFMW: Mini Flylady Control Journal



I’ve been following  Flylady’s system for almost 9 years now. It’s been great! Most of her ideas work really well around here. One that didn’t, though, was making a control journal out of a binder. It took up too much space if I left  it out on my counter or table. It looked like clutter. And using a binder was an invitation to me to toss rogue papers into it. More clutter. 

Enter my cute little control journal! I picked up a checkbook sized photo album and inserted notecards into the slots. Using Flylady’s control journal as a guideline, I was able to make a control journal the was just right for me. Check it out! 


A mini control journal works for me! Check out what’s working for others at We Are THAT Family!

    This is an awesome idea! Love it!
    It would be great to do for your kids too.
    I am thinking I will add in pictures of each zone(or room) that I will take when it is clean, and the way it is “supposed” to look. For inspiration! And for an example for the kids.
    Thank you! I am going to walmart now to look for some of these photo albums!

    This is a good idea! I was kind of wondering about a big binder too. I like the idea of a mini photo book. I also love Wendy’s idea of taking pictures of rooms in their optimal conditions!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m
    assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
