ListPlanIt Giveaway and Review!

Does your life seem hectic and could use a personal organizer?! Sometimes when things get so busy here I feel scattered, almost like leaves falling in disarray during the fall! You know when your leaves fall in your backyard, first it's pretty and the kids love to play in them, and you get great pictures! Then it seems annoying and like the clutter will never leave your yard! AHHH~ okay enough with that analogy, because I could go on, for example what the wind then does...okay really stopping!

Many of you know I love making lists, I have tons of them! Chip will often joke that making lists is a hobby of mine! I have great plans in mind, and boy do I ever plan to achieve each and every item on my lists! I get giddy being able to cross things off my list! Sometimes I am bummed that I have only crossed off a few items, but am overall really excited to accomplish things! Sometimes they get overwhelming because I didn't have a designated way to sort out all my ideas! Thus came my project to start a home journal/binder. I have implemented a new Home Binder all complete with lists! I have a recipe section, meal planning, house cleaning, schedules/routines, etc. I have become inspired at how easy this was to set up using ListPlanIt! Anyone can do it and I am amazed at how much more I can actually accomplish.

Okay so I have to tell you, Jennifer, of ListPlanIt, gave me a year membership to try out and navigate and review for my readers! I was a little overwhelmed as to where to start when I opened the site. I tackled some of the ideas and pages that she has available; there are over400 lists!!! With so many lists, it enables you to keep your world in order and less chaotic (remember my leaves analogy?) The lists I have hit, are family matters, home, meal planning, finances, contacts, and so much more! The lists are in a pdf format so it is incredibly easy to print and edit! Some of the lists I am not sure if I will use, but who's to say that you wouldn't use them! The lists that I will use on a regular basis will definitely help me manage our house and allow more time to focus on being a great mom and wife! Living on purpose with a plan~

Of course like everything else, you can print things up, but you have to be intentional when doing so. In order for them to be helpful for your family, you have to use them. Jennifer makes this task very easy, by being able to customize each list to your needs. Which because of the ease of this product, I will and have used it much more than I thought at first!

I love that you can choose what type of membership you want and what will work for you and your family. For me, I think the download membership will work out perfectly throughout the years. I like the ability on the download membership that you can type on the lists and then print them out. I know that I haven't even come close to looking and finding all the lists that I want to utilize, but that is the fun of the year membership!

All in all, I think as long as I revert to this way of making lists and organizing it will work! Anyone can use this and if you are interested in becoming organized this a great resource for every household!
