I love to organize and be organized!  One way to keep myself on track each day is with lists…a to do task list, a grocery list, a blog idea list, kids’ schedules, a Target list, etc.  I keep these lists inside my planner.  Yes, I am old-fashioned when it comes to my lists.  I tried putting them in my iPhone, but I like the satisfaction of crossing off my completed tasks!

Sometimes all the lists overwhelm me, but I came up with a cute and clever way to easily access these various lists inside my planner, using one of my favorite craft items…washi tape!
