I was talking with a friend over the weekend and she was telling me about how she'd been using Fly Lady to establish better housecleaning routines at home.

What she expressed was a sort of love/hate feeling about the helpful website:

Fly Lady is full of suggestions for establishing good habits in housekeeping. Some seem obvious at first glance, but it can be really useful to have a gameplan set out before you to get your rear in gear.

Where the hate side of my friend's feelings toward the site come into play are the daily email reminders of suggested tasks to try at home. She felt so pestered and burdened by the emails that she removed herself from the site's mailing list. She does, however, still visit the site on her own when she needs a little motivation.

Do you use Fly Lady as a tool for cleaning house? If so, what do you love about it? If not, how come? Haven't heard of it? Let's hear what you think in the comments below.
