Task It Tuesday

Welcome to Task it Tuesday, created by the fabulous Geeky Blogger and adopted first by Because Reading and now by Bloggiesta!

What is Task it Tuesday? Task it Tuesday is a weekly meme dedicated to the list makers of the blogging world 🙂 It’s all about being productive and organized – on your blog and in real life (if you so chose). By sharing our lists we get instant accountability partners and also get ideas of things to add to our lists (or sometimes ways to tackle tasks more efficiently). We hope you’ll join us!

One of the reasons I started my bullet journal almost two years ago was because I like to make lists. I live by lists - if I don't have a list, I'm lost so I'm pretty excited about Task It Tuesday.

For my first Task It Tuesday, I'm actually pulling a list I posted here five years ago. It's not a task list, specifically, but in listing out the things that make me happy, I'm looking to remind myself to work those things into daily life, to work into my everyday lists. I've already got a couple of them worked into this coming week. I've made a few tweaks - there were some things I forgot, there were some things that I've learned I love in the past five years.

What would you put on your list?


  1. A great list! And I'm a list-maker too. I always tell my husband that if I don't write it down on my ongoing list, it's isn't real and probably won't happen. He, on the other hand, is usually telling me things to add to my list when I don't have my list nearby. Ah well. Love him dearly anyway. Ha!

  2. I love this list! There is nothing terribly fancy or expensive on it. It is just ordinary things that we might normally take for granted.
