List Plan It

Updated: This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winners, Jessica from Life as Mom and Fenella from Owen & Brando!!

Are you feeling overwhelmed with life?

Are you having trouble remembering everything you have to do with so much on the go?

Are you stressed?

Then maybe it's time for what I affectionately call a brain dump.

Take all that information that you have swirling around in your head to do, to make, to take, to go, to buy, to schedule, to plan and get it all down on paper. Once it's down on paper you don't have to exhaust yourself trying to remember it all anymore.

Lists are the ultimate brain dumping tool. Rather than having one great big running list of everything though why not have a variety of lists to help you group and organize the various tasks you have to accomplish.

Yet maybe the thought of creating all those lists seems overwhelming in itself to you.

Not to worry because Jennifer of List Plan It can help you with that.

With a membership to this site you will never want for another list again. My gosh there is a directory of over 300 printable lists and planning pages!! Every list imaginable to help you get organized, now that's what I call service.

The membership fee for a three month subscription, which allows you access to all these lists, is only $9.95. That's a great deal. However if you'd rather not commit to a 3 month subscription Jennifer also offers another great option.

Downloadable ePlanners group multiple lists in convenient category packages for you for only $4.95 each. For instance if you're only interested in lists to do with the organizing and managing of your home you could simply download the Home ePlanner and have access to all the applicable home lists instantly. Easy as that!


Jennifer's lists are easy to use and concise and I can't recommend them more highly for managing your house, your family and your life.

I'm happy to announce that TWO lucky readers will each win a 3 month subscription just by commenting on this post by Monday, August 18th at 6:00 pm pst. Good luck!!


Have you had a brain dump lately?

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.

I could so take advantage of something like this! Nothing like more organization!

lady-guenievre said...

This sounds intriguing. Might even have to buy a membership...

Lundie said...

Looks really cool! I'm sitting at my desk trying to apply the Getting Things Done method to my life and having a bit of a struggle. Love more resources!

Denise said...

This sounds great (as did the scrapbook book, but I missed that- having just packed all my scrapbook stuff away because I was overwhelmed and didn't know how to organize it!) would love to try the list plan.

Lori Bouck said...

Sounds great! I'm constructing my own Home Management Binder and could use the help.

Elaine said...

OK, it must be just me, but the thought of putting my lists online makes me cringe. It's one extra step to take before actually tackling my to-do list. Plus, my best list-making takes place in the car with paper and pen ... no computer or Blackberry in sight.

I'm feeling like a list fuddy-duddy ... but best of luck to those who try the site!

BooLovey said...

Well, since I put this giveaway on a list this morning so I could remember to come back and comment . . . I think this would be a wonderful thing for me to win. I have four children under five and if I don't write it down or have it on a list it doesn't get done. I would write more but it is 11:30 and my youngest will be up in a few short hours. Pick me, Pick me . . . please.

Oh how I would love to win! I love lists but sometimes they get the best of me. Winning this would be a nice way to celebrate my 60th birthday on Monday. (I love your blog by the way.)

Noell said...

Oh wow! This is a dream come true for an anal list-maker such as myself! Since having my 2nd child almost 3 months ago, however, my list-making abilities have taken a back seat to all-night feedings and diaper changes and now the housework and finances are beginning to suffer!
