I love the process of planning and making lists! The DOING is the hard part! I am flexible, though, which I think is an important part of the process. I also love to cross things off... even the small things I accomplish each day. I make grocery lists, weekly to do lists, trip packing lists, meal planning lists, summer project lists, Christmas gift lists, etc.
My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today.
Nothing is worth more than this day!

I don't always, but occasionally I make lists. When I do I follow them and check things off.

Yes I do and follow the grocery list. The "honey do" list for both of us gets attention when we find time and usually adding more than crossing off.
Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner. Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

Yes, I make an errand list along with a shopping list. It saves me from making multiple trips and it saves time and gas. I pretty much stick by the lists, but may add one or two additional items at the grocery store or substitute one item for another.

* I love a to-do list just so I can cross stuff off! It definitely makes me get on with that stuff. * Menu planning. * Shopping lists - it's on the fridge door and get's noted up when I'm on my last one of whatever, and updated just before the shopping. * Holidays & packing.

I have 6 ongoing lists... physical goals grocery/meals todo/house cleaning sparks groups/sparks coach/spark page birthdays/anniversaries/special events financials.
I have one not book that all these lists are kept, I go through it once or twice a week and make off those things that are done, add those things that are necessary... been doing this for about 15 years and works very well for me. I have a problem though when someone moves my notebook..... completely and absolutely lost!

I make lists all the time.... sometimes I have rewritten the same list 3 or 4 times! I know I even put things on there that have been finished recently just so I can cross them off too! I am a list-acholic!

I make lists. Grocery lists, with a note if I have a coupon for the item or the sale price. I also write to do lists and love crossing off things as I go.

I am SUCH a listmaker, both for groceries and a to do list. It feels so good to cross things off the list, and I can save money if I organize my grocery shopping by store to shop the sales.

Definitely a list maker. I do a menu plan weekly, check inventory and make a list of needed items. Have a list of what to do for each day of the week (can be flexible). Weekends are free. Mostly follow them. Feels so good to mark off item when accomplished!

I am totally a list maker. Sometimes I follow my list but sometimes I don't. The list grounds me and helps me not to feel too overwhelmed. I do love stroking off the things I have done.

LOL- I make lists all week while I'm at work. Mostly my lists are things "to-do" on my days off. And mostly none of it gets done.

I am a list maker and try to follow them to the letter. If something comes up and I have to make changes, it can really mess up the budget, so I have to be very careful.

I make a weekly meal plan for the evening meal, and have a running list of 'usual' breakfasts and lunches. I create a shopping list based on this plan - and I stick to it, otherwise it can (and does) blow the budget.

I make grocery lists always. I find it much easier and quicker to get around the supermarket with a list in my hand. I start on my list as soon as I have shopped, adding things that I use as I use them. That way I don't have to think about what I have used during the previous week before I go shopping.
I also make a list of things I have to do. This is not immediate things but things like....I want to have a couple of my Mother's pictures framed. I have it down as an aide memoir rather than "have to do immediately".

i do make a grocery list based on what is on sale for the week. i take coupons and a pen so that when i get something on my list i can mark it off. it helps me stay on budget and not spending too much money.

I make grocery lists of the things I don't have to buy regularly. I'll make a list of things to do if there's a lot - it helps me prioritise.

Do you make lists of things to do, groceries to buy, etc?
I do not usually make a list of things to do unless I am overwhelmed and think I might forget something. Or the night before a trip, so I remember what to take. I do make grocery lists but I do not always take them with me to the store. I do not make a written schedule for my time. Nor do I make a meal plan for the week.
Do you make lists?
