List Maker Extraordinaire

I am such a list maker. I can't help it! Maybe it's because I totally fit the stereotypical oldest child Type A profile. A personality some might like to call "neurotic," but I much prefer the term "hyper-organized."

Sometimes I think I make lists just so I have things to cross off, that's half the thrill, right? And this past weekend was personal feat for me because I crossed like 10 things off my to-do list. Okay well really it was only about 5, but you get the picture... Mind you, most of these things were mundane errands that wouldn't thrill any of you, depositing checks at bank, send thank you notes, blah, blah blah... But somehow, tracking these less-than-exciting "chores," in lists, seem awfully less chore-like when I'm able to check them off at the end. Am I the only crazy list maker out there? There's got to be more of you, right?...

P.S. I just downloaded a new t0-do list app which I absolutely love called toodle-do, which helps me convert my to-do list electronically. All my fellow hyper-organized peeps out there will iphones should definitely splurge on the $2.99 for this app. Love it!

I am a total list maker and sometimes add things I already completed to my list just so I can check them off! I sound like a crazy person...haha. There's a total sense of satisfaction from crossing things off though! I love that notepad. :)

You are definitely not alone! I do what Stef does - if I've done things that are not already on the list sometimes I add them just to have the satisfaction of ticking them off!

I like that term, "hyper-organized" I'm going to start using that too!

I'm a big fan of lists. I have a running list that I keep on my desk at school and sometimes I put really little things on it that I do automatically just so I feel like I've accomplished something. I love that picture!

I'm a major list maker too! It's definitely the satisfaction of getting things done and worrying I'd forget something that makes lists so helpful.

True story: I am a to-do list maker, and I always start my list with one thing I've already accomplished that day. Crossing one thing off right away always makes me feel better about finishing the rest. I know, it's weird.

I can't live without lists. I have an app called awesome note (I think). I have lists for groceries, shopping, to-do, movies, books, music, tv shows. I need my checklists and that satisfaction of crossing things off.
