Jennifer’s camping list made our last family outing much easier to prepare for (I almost forgot the matches!). I love that no matter what type of occasion I need to organize, I’m guaranteed that ListPlanIt will make the process easier by pointing me to a list they’ve already created. Such a time saver!

Today Jennifer of ListPlanIt is generously offering two download memberships, two print memberships, and two ePlanners to six separate readers.

  1. I use Google calendar and list for my main organizational tool. I’d love some good lists, though!

    My calendar

  4. I need a lot of help with organization. I don’t think there’s one tool that keeps me on top of things, unless it’s Google calendar. I try really hard, but fail over and over.

    I am a compulsive list-maker, and many of those lists fit into a day planner that my mother-in-law sends me every year from Japan. It has a lot of space to write on each day, and plenty of blank pages in the back where I keep seasonal lists, present lists, goal lists . . . . Now, if only I had room there for my shopping lists, too, which end up spread all over the house.

  7. Oh, how I LOVE lists, but I’d have to say that my biggest organizational tool is Google Calendar. Now, if only I had a smartphone…

  8. Kathy T says:

    calendar, would be lost without it! After a move though, I definitely need more help!

  9. I subscribe to the List PlanIt blog.

  10. I subscribe in a feed reader.

  11. I don’t actually have an effective tool right now other than trying not to lose my calendar and seemingly hundreds of started lists all over our house. I need help! Pick me! = )

    I really need help getting organized, but I guess for now the best tool I have is my calendar, I have to keep track of everything so that I don’t double schedule something or forget to submit something on time.
