Product Description

About the Author

Paddi Newlin earned a B.S degree (in psychology) from Bryan College, and a Masters from Berea Theological Seminary. She is a Certified Professional Life Coach (CPLC), and is currently working toward her doctorate. Paddi has worked with FlyLady and Company since its inception in 1999, but she has known the Flylady—her sister, Marla Cilley—all her life. A resident of Chattanooga, Tenn., she is the mother of three and a proud grandmother of three. Ken Hartley is a graduate of Union University in Jackson, Tenn., with a B.A. in music and drama. He has served as a Pastor and Counselor for over 25 years. He also has traveled the world performing as professional illusionist in Europe, Asia, and South America, as well as all over the United States (including Las Vegas). Ken makes his home in Chattanooga, Tenn. He and his wife, Stacey, have been married for twenty-three years. They have four children. Jessica Oliver has worked for Flylady and Company for ten years, but like her mother Paddi, she has been involved with her aunt the Flylady all her life. Jessica is the mother of one, and makes her home in Chattanooga.

I had half a shelf full of books on how to cut time and be efficient at housework before I found FlyLady. One promised a spotless house in 15 minutes a day. It started with washing your ceilings and got worse from there.
This book, to the right person, would be life transforming in a way that others can't. It is also reasonably entertaining. The FlyLady method includes so much more than mere housework, yet this small book can explain the whole ethic involved. Try it. It works.

It's hot here in Cape Town in midsummer. I felt like a little non taxing read and this suited me just right. I have slackened off a little on my household routines while setting up a small hobby business and this is motivational. I had just finished a heavy political story and a sociology book, this is a pleasant rest from serious things. I read it in a day and it is a feel good book about finding your life's purpose when you follow flylady s system, something I have done now for seven years and found it works extremely well for getting life in order simply and fast in a balanced way.

For those of us who have tried Flylady, whether succesfully or not, this book provides much encouragement and hope. The key for me (and probably for most Flybabies outside the U.S.A.) has been to adapt Flylady techniques to suit my own situation and I'm not sure that the book covers this but it does provide enormous encouragement for those who struggle with housework. The story is interesting and quite compelling - I couldn't put the book down as I wanted to discover what happened to the characters. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is struggling with a chaotic house but the only solution out of the chaos is to work at it consistently until (1) the chaos is reduced & (2) you have learned routines and good habits to prevent the chaos re-ccurring. Flylady teaches the techniques and although I struggle with the constant advertisements for her products, her ethos is very good. I'm off now to shine my sink and check my control journal (but I'm NOT wearing lace-up shoes!!!!)

I was a tad skeptical about buying this: £6 seemed a lot for a download by an unknown author, and I suspected a bit of 'cashing-in' of the popularity of FlyLady. I saw it advertised on FlyLady's Facebook page and dismissed it initially but decided to have a look at the reviews. I have known about the Fly business for a while but as a non-American it's all a bit too OTT for me and while I like a lot of the ideas, I have never really got into it. But I needed a kickstart to the new year as I need to have a bit of a clear-out and figured I'd read it for motivation.

It was all I expected: simply written, and very 'touchy-feeley' in that American way. And a blatant advert for FlyLady. It's not hidden or subtle - it's there and no mistaking that they want you to visit the website. At times I felt that it detracted from the story a bit, but then the story basically is all about the FlyLady system. Thankfully the book wasn't trying to flog cleaning products incessantly like the emails, otherwise I'd have had to drop another star or two!

All in, it's not the best book in the world but it's something a lot of us can relate to, even though the stereotypical characters were slightly unrealistic at times. I'm not sure how much motivation it has given me, but it certainly hasn't done any harm. If you love the emails and testimonials then you'll love this. I should have trusted my instinct rather the the other reviews and saved my money but it wasn't the worst purchase in the world... At least it wasn't be paper copy that would become more clutter!

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is inspiring and I read it in a few days but love the fact that I have it on my kindle
and can read it without having the clutter of another book.

Whether you know anything about the FlyLady system or not, this is a read well worth making time for if you are a busy, juggling life, hard-pressed lady.
It is a light read, doesn't take long, but has some deeper answers if you are looking for them.
The sort of book worth keeping and reading again from time to time.

This book describes itself as a novel, so i wondered if it would stand up as a story in its own right. It doesn't really do that, if you don't need the Flylady info on getting yourself organised in your home and wider life.

If you do need help to get organised, tho, and have found the usual "how to get organised" books just don't do it for you, 'Hidden Treasures' is a gentle and interesting introduction to the Flylady system, in the form of a story.

Part of the story involves a junk/antiques shop which features at the start of the book and in a section at the end (which i specially liked).
The main part of the book is a diary describing how Gina improves her life, using the Flylady methods. The diary is being read by Courtney who then also uses Flylady to get her life on track.

'Hidden Treasures' gives a lot of Flylady info but wouldn't be enough, on its own, to get yourself organised. It could inspire you, tho, to look at Flylady's website (which is free, of course) for more info on her tips for doing things by baby steps and how not to get overwhelmed.
