Are you a list maker?

I am a list maker. I like lists! I think it may be because I have so much to do that I forget everything. I make lists to grocery shop...for those things that I don't get every week. I email myself lists of things to do when I get home from school. I email myself things to do at school from home.

I keep a list of what I have gotten people for Christmas for the last several years. (I don't want to repeat myself!) I make lists of things I want to remember to blog about. You might have guessed that's been a short list this past summer!

I also keep many things in files (just like lists!) on my computer so I can find it easily!

I keep a list of phone numbers taped to my refrigerator door. My computer armoire doors have lists on them.

I know there are many more things that I have lists for. What's on your list?

take care,

Yes, I make lists, but not as many as you. Then again, I'm no longer working and my children are long grown and gone.

I make grocery lists, lists of things to do, lists of gifts to buy, but my most extensive list was when we recently moved. I have a list with every single item I own and what box it's in, along with the location of the box. Might I say, that list has helped so much whenever we're looking for something in our temporary rental home.

I do make lists, but not as extensive as yours. Mainly grocery lists and lists of things I need to pick up after my little part time job in town. Ex. milk, or dry cleaning or mulch....things like that which might slip my mind.

I do make lists occasionally...but then forget that I have them, or go off and leave them at home when I need them. OH well.....guess I've tried. LOL
Hope you year is going well!

I am a list maker--grocery lists and lists of errands. When I'm having people over for a holiday I have lists galore relating to menu, groceries, cleaning etc! Despite writing it all down I still seem to forget some things at times.

Oh yes, yes, yes!!! I am an obsessive list-maker! I even make lists of the lists I need to make. What can I say it makes me happy? :D

I have lists of the things I've given people for Christmas, too (each each has it's own little binder). Only problem is that I never actually think to look at them anyway. ;)

Hi Dawn, I never make lists. Not for anything. If I need to remember an ingredient for a recipe, I bring the recipe with me to the store. On a RARE occasion that I might write something down I never look at the list. LOL. I am so bad but I do have a good memory for most things. However, I find myself forgetting more as I get older. Maybe it is time I start writing a list!!!

I commend you for being so organized. I do plan ahead sometimes. If I am having company for dinner, I will set the table a couple days ahead. I plan my meal to all be ready at the same time. That is about as organized as I get. I will clean way ahead of company but I still am getting dressed right before my company arrives. My motto and I live by this is...If it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would get done. It drives Beverly nuts. Big smile.

Wow, I guess You hit a nerve. I get lots of flack from Beverly on this subject. She IS a list maker.

Have a great week.
