A List of Lists: Stay Organized and Rememer Everything

Wednesday, 15 July 2015

I'll admit it, I'm one of those people who feels the need to keep lists at all times. I even have a list journal with a specific list on each page (I won't mention how many journals I own and write in) However, as someone who considers themselves to be organized this is a very helpful thing!

I'm also incredibly forgetful so lists are often my only hope of remembering both the big and little things.

A while ago I set out on an online search for a list of lists, if you will, to help me stay organized and have a bit of fun with it. While I didn't find that one source with a masterlist, I did manage to find ideas here and there to create my own.

So, to help you stay organized here is a list of lists that I keep in my journal:

 For that ever-annoying "What do you want for your birthday?" question we can't ever think of an answer for. Or rewarding yourself after a challenge of course.

Gift Ideas
Save yourself from getting stuck on what to buy for birthdays. Keep updated year round and take notes when you get home from shopping with a loved one. Remember what they pointed out or said they would love to buy for themselves but won't. 

Got a Minute? 
For small chores we all forget to do, but don't take a lot of time. I skip this page more often than I should

Watch, Read, Listen
Recommendations to explore at a later time. So much music...

Things I Will Do This Year 
Because it's important to make exciting plans. Life's all about making memories, right? Go skiing, spend more time at the beach or make your own ice cream. 

Big Hairy Audacious Goals
A list of your biggest dreams to help keep them in mind. When you write them down on paper they don't seem so scary!

Don't Forget 
Important reminders; just don't forget to check it regularly!

Blog Post Ideas
A pretty important one for me. I always jot ideas down as soon as they hit me so I don't forget and I can look back on them when I get stuck for ideas

Bucket list
Probably the most important list to keep updated. Best feeling ever when you can cross them off!

Great Ideas
I think we've all lost some great ideas over the years, so always right them down. You never know where they might lead!

Apps to Try 
For those online recommendations to try later

Things to Do When You Are Sad
Because we all have those down days and need to be reminded of what makes us happy. It's important to keep this one updated too

Online shopping is very important to all of us

Sayings to remember 
Little quotes or things people have said that were too lovely to forget

Lessons Learnt
Great to look back on over the year and be reminded of what you've been through

There's always new products to try; great for trips overseas where they don't charge an arm and a leg for lipstick. I love you America!

Things to Google
To satisfy my curiosity on a bored Saturday evening (What is quorn even made of?)

I'm lucky enough to be visiting Hawaii very soon and I like to slowly add items so I don't forget anything.

I hope this helps! What lists do you keep? x.
