    Question Do you make lists and do you keep up with them?

    Recently, I bought a little fat notebook that fits in my purse and made a list of stuff I have to do. It helps out a lot in remembering things. I love crossing off stuff that I accomplish.

    Do you make lists?

    Yes. I write my lists on index cards I get at the Dollar Store. In the PM, I write down what I need to accomplish the next day.

    Yes, I write lists for everything. Grocery lists, cleaning lists, daily tasks, and I keep a food and excercise journal. There is a certain feeling of accomplishment when you get to make it off, as done.

    I write to-do lists periodically.... either for a weekend or for a day. I keep up with those.

    I liked the SHE home organizing system (individual tasks-- empty dishwasher, etc-- on index cards for each day) because it was like crossing off a giant list each day. I used it for a while but eventually got out of the habit.

    Yes, I have lists for everything. I can't remember everything I need to do or want to do. I keep a little book in my purse and I have a PDA that I keep lists on.

    I make lists of all sorts.

    My dh gets home from work before I do. I leave him a honey-do list of about 4 things, usually starting laundry, washing bottles, etc.

    I make myself to do lists and keep them in a small black journal on my desk atwork.

    I am a list maker also. I live by post it notes. I jot things I need to remember and stick them everywhere.

    ok, this is a glimpse into my OCD. Honest, it is.

    I have lists...lots of lists. Each organised into notebooks...daily to do's, house hold to-do's, pet to do's, kids to do's, church related ones, vehicle related ones, gardening ones, and so on. you can always cross reference my sub-lists by the daily list notebook...and that by checking the master list notebook. I can't do anythign till these are all in order.

    I am not kidding.

    I keep a personal to-do list, plus one list for each project I am billing hours to for my job. I always shop with a grocery list, even though many of the items are the same each week. It's the only way I can hope to remember everything I need to do!

    I make a list for shopping at Wal-Mart, and occasionally I will make a list for the grocery store, usually if I want to make a specific dish and don't want to forget any ingredients. I will make a list for going on vacation to make sure we don't forget anything. Other than that, I'm not a list kind of girl.

    I would be lost without my PDA. I have a windows based PDA so that I can keep my excel spreadsheet with my budget on it. I also have a home organization spreadsheet that I keep on it so I can update my perpetual pantry as often as needed. It has a calendar that has my daily plans, and a to do list. I would be lost without it.
