Making lists helps me to stay on track and organized. There are so many distractions throughout the average day that making a list helps me to prioritize. Even if I don't complete everything on my list for the week I at least know what needs to be done and where I need to focus my energies first.
For me, lists are an essential tool. So here's my TO DO list for this week. Thankfully I have quite a bit of it done already.
Make cinnamon rolls for the freezer (gluten free & non-gluten free)
