Why you should write helpful lists in your planner:

Planners are a fantastic way to help you get your life organized and stay on top of your busy life and schedule. And I promise you that lists are one of the best ways to make your planners succeed!

Making lists and sticking to them will help you create a more productive life. They are meant to be helpful lists that benefit you, they are not meant to be time consuming so make sure to pick lists that are the most efficient and logical for your life.

These helpful lists are meant to keep you productive and organized by keeping you on top of the little parts of your life and helping you waste less time. Because the main thing that stops productivity is unnecessary time wasting.

Use lists to keep track of ideas and goals. Use them to plan out the best week you can have and to have things written down so nothing gets forgotten. This also results in you living a more organize lifestyle. And who doesn’t want to be more organized?

So if you are interested in living a more productive and organized life then I highly suggest book marking this page and using these lists in your planner this year.

Sounds great but I don’t have a planner yet?

No worries! Check out my favorite one ever- Happy Planner from Me and My Big Ideas! It has a great side bar for keeping track of goals and lists and you can get inserts as well for additional lists.

I also use these pens for writing in my planner and they are fantastic so if you find that your current pens leak through to the other side I definitely recommend checking these out.

If you are interested in adding lists to your planner make sure to get a planner that has space for lists. I find the best ones to be ones with a side bar on the weekly spread, monthly calendar, and a notes section in the back of the planner. That way there is plenty of room for any and all lists you want to include in your planner.

Now that we have chatted about why planner lists are helpful for organization and where you can get a planner and tools it’s time for the fun part! Below are the 25 planner lists I have in my planner to be more organized. I hope these are helpful!
