Attractive To Do Lists That Might Actually Inspire You To Do Stuff

to do list

When Lifehacker asked its readers about the best to-do list manager, paper got 23% of the vote - and this is from a techie-oriented crowd. If you're one of those who prefers paper - and you'd like something a bit special to write your list on - I've got some products to show you.

The one above - The Freakin Never Ending To Do List - comes from Erin Vale's Etsy shop, finch&hawk. You can also take a look at her no-cost printable HoneyDew list.

You might also like modernmotive's Rome Wasn't Built in a Day: Stuff To Do List. While designed for projects, it seems like it could work well for general-purpose to do lists, also. And it's printed on eco-friendly paper.

Then there's Skel Design - with so many nice to do notepads that it's hard to pick just one to show you. Here's one in Spanish; there's a also a French version.

And here's one of Skel Design's to do notepads with an animal theme. There are also pads with frogs (jump to it), dogs and cows. All the pads are made with 100% post-consumer recycled paper.

Love The Freakin Never Ending To Do List - seems that's what I have.

I'll often do a brain dump on paper and then put them into electronic so that I can batch and sort.

I too love the "Never Ending" list!

Question - when making to-do lists, should repeating tasks be added for purposes of getting a grip on everything to be done? As in - should things like laundry, dust/vacuum be on the list along with the non-standard things like divide iris plants, clean gutters, etc? On one hand, it helps me get a better picture of what lies ahead, especially when requests to go/do something unexpected come up (ammunition - "we can do that, but only if you help me do this"). But on the other hand, everyone in the house knows they need to be done and I really shouldn't keep them on the list. I suppose this is a whatever-works-for-you situation.

Loved reading about how you organize for you blog! I have another to do list to add - Information Central - a Paper Mousepad by Knock Knock. I found it at Savvy Skirts in Half Moon Bay. It's my new favorite.

I love the "Rome Wasn't Built in a Day" pad, but then I clicked through to Skel Design and they have so many lovely options, especially "Get your ducks in a row" and "Jump to It".

I'm glad to see so many of you are enjoying these notepads!

If anyone wants to see the one Stephanie mentioned, it's included in this post.

JustGail: Yes, whatever works! And there's nothing that says you have to have just one list. Maybe you want some sort of chore chart to go along with the list of other to-do items.

We nice looking to do lists :) However, I was just wondering if it makes you to stuff too many tasks there(for a one day).
