Do you make to do lists?

I do when I can remember to or else nothing gets done. I usually make a list of at least 4-5 chores to do and any errands to run. I also put the exercise and nutrition I am to follow that day. It keeps me on track and helps me get stuff done. When I don't.... chaos and utter ruin. I end the day wondering where the time gone and why nothing got done.

I have not gotten to this point yet, I was blessed with a wonderful memory. My boss will say right this down so you dont forget and I never do and I will always remind her what has to be done. But I am sure there will be a day when I will have to write myself a note to tell me to go pee. For now I am safe lol

Yes I am so a list person. Except I go on from to do lists to all kinds of other lists like grocery and making a list for packing so I do not forget anything. I feel like my life is just one big clock of post-it notes with lists on them. However I do feel like they give me order and help with time management. Plus I never seem to forget anything when we go on trips. I feel like since I have to pack for everyone I need to be able to remember to get 4 different sets of underware for everyone! So you are def not alone on this list thing!

Yes, I can see where that would be needed.

I've been using Bounty's Kiddie Do list maker to keep both my kids and myself on track. I swear by lists- if it weren't for them, I'd forget half the things I need done :)

From time to time, I do have a to-do list. Although I must admit that I do not follow them at times. When I am really very busy and I know that I might forget the things that I should be doing, I prepare a to-do list. It remind me of the things that I need to accomplish.

I always make a list, but then add to it and end up having to shift things around for tomorrow because I got busy or something took longer than I thought. I currently have a list of to do things through next Friday. Hey, I now have a totally clean living room out of the deal, so not too bad.

I make to do lists all the time. If I don't make them, I tend to get off track a lot, especially when it comes to school assignments. If I have a lot of things due around the same time and I don't make a list of everything due, I tend to work on one thing and completely forget about the other thing. It really helps keep me on track.

If I have more than one or two places to go, I will make a list of the places I have to go in order from farthest to nearest to my beginning and end destinations. And, on that list, I will write down what items I am in search of so I don't forget if there is more than one thing. I have really bad memory so, I can easily forget what I am looking for if there are even as little as 2 items. I might find one and forget I wanted something else too! LOL!

That sounds very well thought out. And with these gas prices, its an even better idea.

I used to. Now when I make a list it turns into the do not do list. Because I never seem to do what is on the list and do other things.

I know that song and dance too. I am infamous for getting sidetracked while trying to get my list done. Like today. Oh well, if I at least get a couple things done, I feel important and accomplished.

At 60yrs. I have to! LOL! Accually been making lists for years mostly groceries. For work I also have to, to keep up with the constant priority changes. Really feels good when your organized. I really don't know how people that don't, function! Thanks tdemex

I hear that. I rarely make them for groceries though. I always find something else or a better deal and end up forgetting to look at the list! Or I walk out the door and forget to grab it off the table. I never forget the staples, but anything else... Oy vey!
