The Ultimate List Maker

Have you guys heard about WorkFlowy yet?!  It's awesome for people who love to make lists!  Rachel was the one who introduced me to it last week.  I always have multiple lists that I write down and then they never seem to all be together.  This website makes it so easy to organize multiple lists and keep your life in order.  You can use it for work, chores, home projects, gift ideas, shopping lists, goals, etc. I love it!!  If you are a nerd like me and enjoy spreadsheets, you will love it too.  You can cross things off and either make them go away or just keep them on the list and see they are crossed off.  I need the latter b/c I love seeing how many things I've accomplished on each list.  The website and concept is really quite simple, but it's such a great idea to keep everything in one place.

At first, I debated on how I wanted to organize mine.  Do I make a list for every day or the week or one big long list?  I decided that I will keep a weekly to do list at the top and work from that mostly.  Then my secondary lists are below that.  It's so fun b/c you can make lists within lists! For instance, I have my weekly list at the top and then a shopping list lower down.  Within my weekly list, I might have, "go to the grocery store" and then on my shopping list, I have the items I need.  It's nice b/c you can quickly add to it as you think of things and just go to your computer or phone rather than hoping you have the list with you or searching for a piece of paper.  I also have wish lists, goals, books to read, small projects and things for work.  Let me know if you try and whether or not you like using it to be more organized.
