25 lists (for the list obsessed)

Here’s a fact about me: I am obsessed with lists. I thrive off of organisation and lists are the main thing that keep my life in order. Or in as much order as the illusion of control can possibly give you. At this present moment I have lists on my phone of the following things; Blogging to-do’s, work to-do’s, things in the post, things I need to buy, payments I’m waiting to receive, Christmas presents I want to buy for people and more. I. Bloody. Love. Lists. But not only can they be extremely beneficial for “sorting shit out“, they can also be fun and therapeutic and a good way to be creative and unwind. They don’t all have to be boring old, “do taxes, do a good shop and put the bins out”. So I’ve concocted a list of lists (that is the most Jenny thing I could have possibly done) for you to try and get stuck in to if… like me… you’re obsessed with lists.

  1. A daily to-do list (let’s start small & basic)
  2. Monthly goals
  3. Yearly goals
  4. Yearly bucket list
  5. Recipes to try
  6. Books to read
  7. Films to watch that month
  8. Christmas / birthday wish-list
  9. Things you’re grateful for
  10. Places you want to go
  11. Things you like about yourself
  12. Areas of your life you want to improve on
  13. Restaurants to try
  14. Blog posts to write
  15. Things you love about your partner
  16. Christmas present ideas for loved ones
  17. Disney movies to watch
  18. Daily affirmations
  19. Your strengths
  20. Netflix shows to watch
  21. 5 year goals
  22. Acts of kindness
  23. Why you love “your favourite thing here”
  24. Boring but important errands
  25. Things to declutter

Are you a list person? Will you be doing any of these lists? What are your favourite types of types to write?

  1. A fun one that I’m going to add in my bullet journal is lists of gift ideas for certain people!
    I already keep a list for my boyfriend in my phone; but it would be handy if I had one for other people as well. That way I just have to check the list to find some inspiration when I need a gift. 😀

  2. I have a running blog ideas list on my phone so I can jot them down as soon as I get inspiration. I also have goals lists and a daily to do list. If I don’t I get nothing done haha! xx

  3. I absolutely love lists! Soon I’ll be writing a list of all the things I’ll need to pack for my Iceland travels and a huge Christmas list of all the goodies I need to bake for people before I grab my passport!

  4. I don’t think I could function without to-do lists! Mine are categorised into ‘to-do’ ‘to-buy’ ‘to-write’ ‘to-plan’ and I would forget too many things without them! 😂

  5. “I’ve concocted a list of lists (that is the most Jenny thing I could have possibly done)” CRYING. Jenny, you are pure gold, I love this post! Seriously though, this is really good advice. I have so many lists on the go (my diary, the calendar, my online Outlook calendar, and also a little notebook in my bag that I use for the shopping, with random jottings at the back, but it’s all quite disorganised really). Next year I’m going to look at separating things out and keeping them in one place. Maybe even a bullet journal?! X

  6. I will probably start doing a majority of these lists so I can stay in check with everything. Such a great post idea. I hope you have a great day 🙂

  7. Definitely a list person. I have too many notebooks, much of them filled with lists I probably don’t actually need but it helps me stay organized… I’m also the kind of person who has a colour coordinated wardrobe…

  8. All those lists! OMG! I am more of a to-do list person than a list person. I should write down lists more often though! xx corinne

  9. I always do a Christmas list – who to buy for and an idea for a gift. I’m rubbish with anyone other kind of list really, I’ll write a shopping list and forget to take it with me! X 💕

  10. I hate that my comment is number 26, because I feel like I’ve messed up your post, so sorry about that! I don’t make lists everyday, but more when I’m stressed and I need to get things into some form of order, then I make to do lists with the most minute of things included just so I can tick them off and calm down a little!! Every so often I make a list of all the books on my kindle to try and put them into order, and lately I’ve been putting together my Amazon wish list. Outside of books, I have a beauty wish list I add to from bloggers recommendations or magazines, and I used to make music wish lists before iTunes!

  11. I frigging love lists. I have an excel list, a phone list, and a paper list- the best kind as theres nothing more satisfying than scratching off that boring item on one of your lists! I think I might add recipes to try to my listography needs to happen. I also write snippet lists though which are quite fun: write down phrases or funny things you overhear/ see all week and then make them into poetry. Its very geeky but also can be a bit heartwarming depending what you write down. One week almost everything I wrote down was people encouraging each other.

  12. Oh Jenny, this is the absolutely ideal post for me! Like you, I’m list obsessed! My boyfriend often tells me that I just take on extra jobs and responsibilities just so that I can list them all down and check them off haha! It’s just a fantastic way to keep on track with you life, that’s what I say! A list of blog post ideas is something that I always have on the go, and acts of kindness are lovely to record too!

  13. Oh my god, this is my dream come true. I am, like you, a huge fan of lists and also have a notes section on my phone full of them. But I just got a shiny new notebook and I’m so keen to try and complete all of these lists in it! Thanks so much for sharing this, I’m obsessed!
