my weekly to-do list...

One blog that I actually manage to keep up with here and there is Money Saving Mom. I love how each week she creates a list of goals and other things she hopes to accomplish—breaking them down into a few categories, but limiting herself to only ten things. (Ten things? That's doable. I like it.) Every Monday she gives a recap of how she did on last week's list, and then shares her list for the week ahead.

I'm sure this may not be a weekly occurrence for me, but the mood stuck to compile a list today, so here I am. 

This weeks goals:

Marriage, Motherhood & Home Life
 — Finish Eisley's creativity cart (a place to keep a variety of art supplies, toys and books)
 — Plan a date night for this month
 — Deep clean and/or organize something (anything!)

Self
 — Start reading one of the many books I've been meaning to begin
 — Earn at least one $5 gift card from Swagbucks
 — Complete devotions/journal at least 5 days

Creativity
 — Spray-paint something
 — List new postcards in the shop
 — Complete current lettering projects for book (more on this later!)

Miscellany
 — Send one unexpected piece of snail mail

I'll be checking in next week to let you know what I managed to accomplish. (And, yes, I may or may not be slightly obsessed with list-making in general. Join me!)

  1. This is a good list -- my to do list is much more...blah. Too many errands I'm behind on! (car maintenance, etc)

    Also just wanted to say I've been really enjoying your blog lately. I really love that hand lettering print you did, too!

    Have a fab week, friend. :)

    1. Thanks for the comment! I rarely (if ever) complete everything on my to-do lists, but I like having them written out anyway. I find it keeps me from adding too many things or feeling like I haven't done enough—which is what usually happens when I just leave my intentions floating around in my headspace. ;)

      As a general rule, I never expect to complete every single thing, and I keep the items on a sliding scale. I'll be sure to put things I know I'll do, things I'm pretty sure I can do, and things that would make me totally thrilled to accomplish. It keeps it interesting throughout the week! :)
