Lists, lists and more lists

With a to-do list longer than my arm, a home to run, 3 girls to look after & home-school, a blog to run and a shop to maintain, some days I'm not sure if I'm coming or going!!!

My brain simply cannot keep a track of everything. Relying on your brain to remember everything ends up with deadlines missed and things done in a rush because you've run out of time!

The key is to writing every little thing down, so that you can keep a track of it all. I'm a HUGE lover of lists... I write them obsesively for everything :) I keep a general to-do list, for everything that  I need to get done..... as well as a specific list for Etsy To-Do's and a Blog List too! I also have a 'top 5 today' to-do list too.

Sometimes I have so many things I need/want to do, I end up not doing anything because I don't know where to start! So on day's like that, I will write down the most important 5 things I need to get done. Once they're done I can breathe a sigh of relief and either relax or more usually crack on with other things!

The last list that I use is a weekly planner, it means I can map out the major things I need to do that week... e.g. blog posts that need writing, the girls 'school' work sessions, etc etc

I thought that some of you might find the lists I created useful too... so here are printable copies of my lists!  Click on the images to go to the full size ready for printing :)

Next week I'm going to share with you my blog planner, and how I keep a track of everything!!

p.s - YOU GUYS!!!!! I woke up this morning to find we'd hit (and gone past) the 300 google friend connect mark!!!! I never in a million years expected this little blog to come as far as it has. But it makes me incredibly happy to write here and know that there is someone reading :) Keep your eyes peeled for a 'thank-you' giveaway!!
