Frugal living blog about all things thrifty: money saving, DIY, crafts, gardens, food, fitness, woodland, wildlife and making the good life affordable! It's about the freedom to enjoy a frugal lifestyle while pursuing a lifelong ambition... and sharing it with you all.
I need to work to lists and keep notes on almost everything - it's the only way I can remember everything and show any semblance of organisational skills. Most would call me scatter-brained, if I'm honest! My websites, message boards, forums and blogs became my money saving, frugal living journals and yet I still wander off track if I don't write things down!
This is my homemade kitchen chalk board - I'm going to try and shame myself into working through the items by posting the list here to see how long it actually takes me to complete it. I also use this one for messages, like what's needed from the shop during the next visit but also as a way of considering how to make whatever rather than buy it.
Today's lists between here, the pin board and my notes:
Nothing too complicated that I can see, but time-consuming while fitting it around home-based income generation, general housekeeping, fire-stoking and keeping up with all the reading I need to do just to keep on top of the Frugaldom forums and challenges. I'm going to see how many of these items can be ticked off this list by tonight; I have already deleted the ones that are already done.
Does anyone else make regular lists? They're almost as addictive as number-crunching or my spreadsheet in this household.
