I’ve tried a lot of different ways to keep To Do lists. I’m a big fan of “Wunderlist”, but even when I use digital To Do’s for master lists, ideas to try, stuff to buy, etc., I need something more immediate on a day to day basis. I have also found that physically writing things down makes them much easier to remember. And as a bonus…is there anything better than getting to cross something completed off your list?
After much trial and error, this To Do list setup is really doing the job! I like to know what needs to be done now - and what I’ll need to be thinking about soon. I’m also a sticky note FREAK so having a space for those is helpful.

This list is a little more simplified than usual…we are starting fresh in the new semester, so my sticky notes haven’t accumulated yet! :-)
