Fall To-Do List

Fall To-Do LIst

I put together a fall to-do list with some ideas for the upcoming season. I’m also sharing some of the fun things I’d love to do this fall. I hope it inspires you to put together a list of your own to celebrate this time of year.

If you are a list maker like me, try the 52 Lists Project Journal. It’s divided into seasons and then weeks. Each week you are asked to list something. At the bottom of the page, there is a “take action” suggestion. There’s also space to make your own lists. You can print out a sample collection of the lists here to help you get started.

I also love using a Bullet Journal. The Bullet Journal is a customizable and forgiving organization system. It can be your to-do list, sketchbook, notebook, and diary, but most likely, it will be all the above. Here’s how to get started using a Bullet Journal. Watch this great video for more details too. Find out why it’s such a great journal here.
