Blog: Technology As An Organizing Tool
For Girls who Love to Make Lists
If you're reading this blog, you probably either wish you were organized and you're looking for tips, or you're very organized (possibly a professional organizer) but on the hunt for exciting new organizing ideas. In either case, I have something wonderful to share with you today!
One of the most basic organizing tools, and probably one of the oldest, is the good old-fashioned list. Organized people often have lots of lists on the go: a to-do list (maybe even two, one for home and one for work), a grocery list, a Christmas card list, and whatever else you find useful. Paper planners often include a section for these lists, but of course you have to rewrite them from time to time or they tend to get very messy. The Internet offers a number of alternatives, including Goal Spirals, which I wrote about back in November.
Fashion website Girlawhirl provides several online list tools, including the following:
• what's a girl to do list
• what a girl's got to keep track of list
• what's a girl to give list
• what a girl's gotta have list
• what's a girl to wear list
• what's a girl to pack list
• what's a girl to eat list
• my itinerary list
After signing up for a free account, you can create as many lists as you like under each category, and each list can be given a custom name, printed, emailed to yourself or a friend, updated as needed, and deleted when it is no longer required.
I think the "what's a girl to pack list" is ingenious – how many people make a new list every time they take a trip?
I especially like the "what's a girl to wear list" which lets you select your top, bottom, shoes and handbag for each day of the week, and even send it to a pack list if you are planning a trip. Now that I work at home, I don't have much use for it myself, but there was a time when I actually did plan what I was going to wear every day at the beginning of each week – and now I know I'm not the only one! ☺
