Lists, Lists and MORE Lists

Everyone has lists, a  List of To-Do’s, Grocery Lists, Travel Lists, Honey-Do List, Things to Do Before I Die List, Wedding Lists…and the list goes on and on; literally!!

Think about how much time you spend creating lists?  And how many of those lists do you RE-create time and time again? 

What if I told you there is a way to cut back on some of the list making , create time in your day , save money and be green conscious!

Here’s how:

  1. Type up a running list of groceries you buy, things you pack when you go on vacation, camping lists, etc!
  2. Once you get a list created take each individual “To-Do” and put it in it’s own seperate document.  Print them off, take them to a nearby office supply store and have them laminated. 
  3. You now have created a standard form; customized to your household and needs which you can use time and time again. 
  4. Use a dry erase marker, wipe off and re-use!!
  5. No more wasted time!  No more wasted paper!!


  1. A custom grocery list can include the items you frequently buy as well as blank space to write now-and-then items. I print my custom grocery list on the back of used printer pages and keep a stash of a dozen or so in my pantry. The custom grocery list is a great way to keep track of those needed items throughout the week. My shopping frequency diminished when I started using the custom shopping list several years ago. Less trips means $$$ saved!

  2. What a great idea, thanks! I always end up re-writing lists.
