I constantly have lists for everything, even lists for lists. Eg. Grocery shopping lists, Christmas wish lists, Needs and wants lists, stuff to do lists. Am I the only one that has lists going? Or are there others out there that write lists too?

  • Yes I sure use lists. When life is busy we can just get forgetful.

  • Yes I am a list lover I have lists for shopping xmas regular bills cleaning spring cleaning list birthday lists to do list I would be lost without my lists.

  • Me too! I love lists and working my way through them. Especially lists I make for things to do in a day. Love it, need them to keep me on track and organised

  • Making lists is a good thing in my opinion especially for shopping for food.

  • Mainly shopping lists just I am open to purchasing additional things they are just things I will defiantly need

  • Definitely, it helps me to organise myself and not forget things!

  • yeah it helps to get these things done and you don’t have to try to remember about it all.

  • I do. The reason for this is the last few years my memory is not so good and writing things helps me remember the important things so I don’t miss it. If it is a minor thing , I couldn’t be bothered with it . This is good in shopping because a few times I forgot the essentials like toilet paper and which isn’t too good for the household . If you have a mobile you can list it on there and that’s even better as you wont lose it unless you lose your phone .

  • It is nice ticking off stuff on a list!

  • I too have lists. I need them so I don’t forget what I’m doing. Shopping lists, things around the house list, Xmas and birthday present wish lists and then lists of what I get to keep an eye on what I’ve spent. If we are going out, I make a list of what I need to take.

  • Yay I am not alone! Love my lists!

  • Ticking off a list is satisfying and there are countless articles about the positive role of lists.

  • I am a list lover – even a list for my lists! ;)

  • Not alone! I write lists for everything. Mostly because my brain regularly fails and i forget things, but also because I feel calmer with lists. Groceries, to do lists, appointments, ideas – just about everything! Im a tad OCD too! It doesnt stop chaos ensuing most days, but it makes me feel better :)

  • I’d be totally stressed without my lists. I even use sticky notes on the computer.
