Lists, Post-Its, and Notepads

Hi.  My name is sherri lynn and I am a compulsive list-maker.  I make to-do lists, grocery lists, to-pack lists, wish lists, books-I've-read lists, movies-to-watch lists, recipes-to-try lists.  Sometimes on my to-do list, I write things that I've already done.  Just so I can experience the satisfaction of crossing it off. Coupled with this obsession with lists is my obsession with post-its and notepads.  I have a drawer full of them that will probably take me years to use, but here are some more I've recently found:


Z gallerie, $6.95


crane & co, $9


barnes & noble, $4.95


amazon, $12.50


chronicle books, $12.95


barnes & noble, $6.95


amazon, $8.57



chronicle books, $9.95

Does anyone else make lists all the time?  Do you have an unnecessary amount of something sitting in a drawer somewhere?

  4. I love all the little listy paper you posted. I do make lists but they are ALL in my phone, which is not such a good idea because what if I lose my phone or it crashes?! Bye bye blog inspiration and all my lists! ha!

  5. HAHA Sheri this is funny! I am the same way! I have boxes of different colored and shaped note pads and post-its....I will never use them all, but I too have lists for everything. To add to my OCD, some lists I will only write in certain colors and only cross off in certain highlighters. I am so strange!

  11. oooh I LOVE those "sticky notes" from amazon. so adorable!

    but I often find myself making pro/con lists. I don't know why. I think I am compulsive list maker too, but I'm weird and as soon as one thing is done instead of crossing it off, I throw the list away and re-write a new one!

  13. I am definitely a BIG list maker. In fact I tend to go a little crazy if I don't write things down! I usually keep notebooks around the house so when I think of something I need to remember I can quickly write it down! Glad to hear there are others as list crazy as me!

  21. Hi! I am increasingly more of a list maker. It used to be in my head. Now there is so much i need/want to do and only so many hours in the day...the lists i have are too big for my brain...so i write them down. & i am a bit of a stationary addict :)

  30. I am also a fellow list maker. Love it! Ohhh, I think I want the "Long List" that sounds like it has some potential. Can you imagine all the check marks? Love!

  31. I'm a HUGE list person. I have millions of pads going on right now. My hubby wants me to put it on my cell but nothing beats writing it out on cute pads and crossing things out. There is also a journal that you write list style. I think it's called Listography:your life through lists.

  32. I am a total list addict too - I totally related to all of the ones you listed. :) It's bad when you have 3 different to do lists in different parts of the house! Love your fun finds - the packing list would be so helpful!!

  40. I make lists on yellow Post-Its and then consolidate them when they are half-crossed out. It clears my brain to write things down. :)
