Organization 101 Day 8~ My fave organizer, The Flylady’s 27 Fling Boogie!

“One of the core organizing principles of my life is that success comes through a delicate balance between making things happen and letting things happen.”

— Robin Sharma

Today we will discuss clutter! I love the quote I used today as I feel it fits into today’s theme perfectly. What is clutter? Is one person’s clutter another person’s happiness? Well, I think there is a reasonable balance we can have in our homes.

Are you a minimalist, a collector, or somewhere in between? I admit, I am a collector.

In today’s post I’ll be discussing the 27 Fling Boogie, a term and system created by author Marla Cilley in her book Sink Reflections. 

I have utilized this tool for years!!! I found this book over ten years ago, and still live by so many of its principles. I developed my P.M.S. program from it. You are wondering what it is??? Well it is a book called “Sink Reflections, by Marla Cilley”, A.K.A. The Flylady

My entire organizational series is based on what I learned from this great book.

Marla talks a lot about clutter and how to avoid it. I have jokingly said in the past that I don’t really dislike what I categorize as ‘organized clutter’! The Flylady says there is no such thing but I disagree!

  1. I like your 27 fling strategy. I have decluttered my house but the basement is another story. I’ll see how this strategy helps. We are older and have grown up children. We like to play “toss, take or inherit” game with my children.

  2. The excerpts from the book brought it all back to me when I used to get her daily email reminders (way back in the early 2000s!). I still do the 15 minute pick-up each day. There isn’t as much clutter anymore, but attacking the hot spots and tidying up makes by stress level much better!

    • I get it! Honestly, though, I think you take her stuff and adopt it to your lifestyle. Some of it like the walk-through is pretty basic. But like most things, I take the information and adjust it to myself. Thanks for stopping by.


  3. Lovely post – I also really appreciate Fly Lady for paving the way on clutter clearing! And those 27 Fling Boogies are the bomb!
    This time before the Lunar New Year is an a great time for Clearing and Resetting our spaces.
