Dear Poll: Are You a List Maker?

Although I’m not a fan of running errands, I am a complete believer in the to-do list or any kind of list for that matter. Sometimes, in a busy day, the only way to keep track of things is to write them down. I even have running lists of movies I want to see and books I want to read. But lists are only as effective as their writer wants them to be, and I know they aren't for everyone so let me ask: are you a list maker?

Yes! I live by my lists! I make them in my agenda, which I always have in my purse, and can refer to at any time.

I love making lists, mostly because I feel so accomplished when I get to cross off everything I did on it.

I make lists, but they either get left behind or if I bring it with me I never really stick to it. So I'm not really all that sure why I bother most of the time.

I think I would not be able to function without my daily to-do list!!! I got the habit from my dad, and everyone makes fun of us, but at least I don't miss appointments or forget things like they do :)

Yes, I love to make lists especially when I'm nervous about something, like going on a trip.

I hear ya, K is for Kait! I am obsess with lists. At work, I have a daily sheet (which is my to do list) and I love checking them off! I also make ones when I go to the store. The days I forget to make one I always end up forgetting something. When I go on trips, I write down every single thing that I need. I know it's sounds OCD but hey it works for me. :)

I'm definitely a list maker! I get an odd satisfaction from crossing things off the list as I get them done.

If I didn't make lists, I don't know how I'd remember anything ever. Last night, I happily checked some items off my "to buy for the apartment" list, and my boyfriend said: "Is that your favorite thing about making lists? Checking stuff off?" I replied that I love everything about making lists so much I could never choose a "favorite." sad but true.

I am totally AR about my grocery list. I make lists for other things occasionally. At work I write my to do list in pencil on my desk so I don't have to worry about keeping up with sticky notes. That way I can also erase things I finish and add whenever. People make fun of me but it works! My list never gets lost in the paper shuffle.

Love my lists, they let my brain take a break. For books, I love, I keep my "have read" and "to be read" book lists there.
