The sense of accomplishment is amazing! Once the list is done I can choose to play without guilt emoticon

  • This sounds related to the Getting Things Done system, which I also find very helpful. We do get overwhelmed easily, and if we're emotional eaters, we don't need the stress of a huge list in front of us all the time! - by DREAMERBLUE
  • I'm going to try this! - by DEBMORSE1
  • Wow, this sounds like a good way to shuffle the to-do's as you reprioritize them throughout the week. And.... saves on rewriting your list all the time.
