31 days of Loving Where You Live: Day 29, Make Lists

I Love Lists!!!
I have books of lists. I make lists of things I want to do to my house, lists of craft projects, sewing projects and painting projects. I figure if I don’t add something to a list it’s probably not going to get done.

I have daily household lists too. I love paper lists. I like to check things off or make a line through them to show I’ve accomplished something. One of my favorite sights at the end of the day is having a paper with lines marked through it.


I would suggest making lists of things you want to accomplish in your home. What things do you want to do to make your home special? What projects have you seen on other blogs you’d like to try? What about something in a magazine or on TV?


My lists change a lot. Some are very realistic and some are a little fantasy. Sometimes I combine the 2 and come up with something awesome. Don’t be afraid to dream a little, that’s when some of the best things happen.


I love post-it notes. Who doesn’t love those colorful little sticky squares? On days when I have a ton to do you might find my computer covered with them.


Do you do this? Some days I do!

See you tomorrow for the next post in the series 31 days of Loving Where You Live: Home Flow

    I love lists too! I also make them for everything. If I have a lot to accomplish I find that I cannot do it without making a list, maybe it’s something to do with the fact that if I have too much buzzing around my head then I cannot focus properly.

    Uumm and yes I also write things on my lists that I’ve already accomplished just so I can cross them off! *hangs head in shame* 🙂 xx

    I love lists, too! At the end of the day i look at my list, some things crossed off and some not, and I feel accomplished. Then, I re-write a NEW list to include everything I didn’t get done today. That way, I release myself of the stress of not finishing today’s stuff and look forward to diving in again tomorrow! I would be lost without a list – playing on the computer all day or watching TV…

    I couldn’t post this on the right page, but I just HAD to thank you for your Halloween pennant. I hope I can post a picture, but my whole class of K-3 kiddos made them and they turned out so freakin’ cute.

    Thank you sooo much for making a busy teacher’s life easier. Teaching 4 grades with repeat kids every year means I really need pinterest to bail me out of the creativity slumps.

    Oh, I love lists! When I write everything down, then I don’t have to think about it anymore, because it’s on paper. And when I cross things off, it gives me such a sense of accomplishment, too! Little or big, I write it all down and check it off.
