Things I need to do today + free printable

to-do list

I’m not naturally a very organised person, but, I’ve been trying to work on that. Running a business and homeschooling three kiddos means my to-do lists are never ending and I’m usually trying to do twenty things at once. Lists are my friends. Seriously – if I don’t write it down, it generally doesn’t get done. I try and make a ‘master list’ at the weekend, of all the things that I’d like to get done that week. Then I’ve found that making a list of things to do each day means I actually stand a chance of getting them done.

If you click on the image you can download the full size, printable image. I print a stack out, and fill one in each morning, so that I can tick each thing off as I get it done. I’ve found they’re also pretty useful for the kiddos to use too… add on chores/work etc that you’d like them to do each day… mine LOVE crossing things off {just like their Mama!}.

Making a list each day means that I know what I’m meant to be doing, meaning you won’t find me sat on my computer staring at facebook… {well, not often!}. It helps when I have five minutes if I can just look at the list and tackle one of my to-do’s – I think it really does help me be as productive as I am!

Do you love list making as much as I do?!

    I LOVE list-making and really can’t cope without it. The sense of satisfaction when you get everything ticked off is pretty amazing too!

    I make mental lists mainly and get very frustrated if I don’t get to do everything I planned to in the morning!

    I am so disorganised that even if I manage to write a list, I lose it!

    I’m probably a bit of a list addict – although I hardly get everything done I need to organise my thoughts somehow – the worst thing is when I write everything down and then lose that list!

    Love this print out

    Great idea to make lists , i must do this

    I could very definitely do with getting organised. I find lists are a great way to focus on each separate task rather than get overwhelmed thinking about everything all at once.
