I’m a fan of to-do lists. Like a huge fan.
I have them on my iPhone, my iPad. my Macbook, on both my cork and white boards, on the fridge, and on crumpled sheets in my purse (often on the back of receipts.) It’s just how I function — I WILL NOT remember the avocados at the grocery store unless I see them on my list and I won’t get that errand done unless I give myself a friendly little reminder.
Whether the obsession is healthy or not, it gets things done and it feels oh soo good to cross something off my to-do list — a sense of accomplishment.
Last year, I mistakenly bought pages for my planner ending in July 2012 — so at the beginning of the month I was left without use of my favorite to-do list keeper, special date reminder and address book all-in-one: my leather planner.
I purchased these Franklin Covey Botanica planner refills and I’m definitely purchasing them again for 2013. Simple, elegant pages make something as simple as marking a lunch date feel special and personal.
How do you stay organized? At home – at the office – I’d love to hear ideas!
