This morning as I checked out at the grocery store, I realized that I had forgotten to purchase an extra set of spoons to place in my son's lunch. I paid and hurried to the baby aisle on to remember that I needed something else. If I had written a list, I could have purchased all my items in one transaction and not had to run through the store at the the last minute.
Making lists will ensure that you maximize your efforts and save time. When I sit down and organize my errands I can easily plan my trip to avoid driving across the city multiple times a day.
It seems so simple, but making lists of all tasks which need to be accomplished reduces stress, which allows us to focus on what is important, our families.
