Kudos to Real Simple! For all of you checklist enthusiasts, here’s a valuable checklist to print and save: the grocery shopping checklist. I promise you’ll love it.
Checklists are a well-known but often ignored organizing power tool. The concept seems too simple: make a list and check items off as they are completed.
“Power tool?” you ask.
Power tool, indeed! It doesn’t matter if you use paper or an app, learn how to tap into this awesomely practical time- and money-saving life skill.
We live in an age of information overload. Our brains and memories are being taxed to their multitasking limits.
The simple process of noting which things need to be purchased or accomplished can keep you from wasting money buying things you don’t really need or wasting time on an activity that was far less important than the one you forgot about.
So how about it? Take a few moments and print or bookmark that grocery shopping checklist.
And then start your own checklist for what you want to accomplish today, this week, and this month. Come the first of next month, see what you were able to get accomplished. You’ll be surprised just how productive – and happier – you’ve been!
