To-Do Lists

I for one am a big fan of to-do-lists. They help me to remain focused and give me a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day, when I see everything crossed off.

Each person has thier own method, but I’d like to share what works for me.


My to-do-list consists of household chores, kitchen prep/duties, and errands. I keep a seperate list for Homeschool and My Husband.

The first things that make the cut are the daily chores, such as mop and sweep all floors on Mondays.
Next are the Quartely chores, which is usually one task such as change AC filters.

Finally, I will add things that I see needs attention. This portion of the list is usually reserved for tasks that will accomplish a future goal. For example if it is Friday I’ll add something that pertains to preparing for church on Sunday such as washing and styling the girls hair or marinating the meat for Sunday dinner.

This helps to prevent me from being overloaded with work when Sunday arrives. Each I complete a task that will make my job easier in the future.

Here’s a look a typical to-do-list

  1. To-Do list can be helpful and harmful. Keep in mind that they are there to help keep us focused not become our task masters.

    If I feel like I am having a bad day I will set my list aside for that day. DO not be afraid to take a break from your list. Also keep them short and focused so that they don’t become overwhelming.

    I keep my list at around 6-8 to do’s.

    Thanks for stopping by ladies.


  2. I never was a list maker, but I think I might start making to do lists as it’s seems I only get half the tasks I want done in the day or they don’t get done at all.
    I also might try making a home management binder but that won’t be till later on down the road when life starts to get settled.

    September blessings,
