Four Fun Ways to Make To-Do Lists

Updated on September 8, 2014

There are always chores that need your attention. Completing daily errands doesn’t have to be a nuisance. Add some enjoyment to this dull process by creating some fun, unique To-Do lists.

To-Do lists

Techno Route

These To-Do lists cater to the computer-savvy population, more specifically those that cannot live (or breathe) without their smartphones, tablets, or the like. Online list-making tools like Voo2do, Todoist, and Lino allow users to prioritize tasks according to importance and/or relation and share progression of projects with others. Users can opt for text or email reminders for upcoming happenings. The start-up cost to open an account is free!

Random Pickings

Close your eyes and pick your task. This simple To-Do list uses tongue depressors or folded paper in a jar. A creative way to get your family involved, this activity is optimal for daily and weekly house chores. Dishes, laundry, sweeping, dusting, and wiping up messes can pile up quickly but having each member of the family pick a job or two from the jar each day can keep living spaces clutter free and smelling clean.


It’s not just a game to pass the time away. A tic-tac-toe template can be used to help execute two to three errands in a given amount of time. One chore is assigned per box. The center box can be a chore or freebie space. The goal is to get three X's or O's across, up-and-down, or diagonal.

Throw Away

The simple act of writing a task on a slip of paper or post-it and then throwing it away once the assignment is complete is very rewarding. This is my most preferred method for completing projects, more so due to the resulting feelings of empowerment and control. However big or small the job may be, the physical act of disposing of the slip of paper represents success of achieving a goal. It represents time that was used in a productive manner, refraining from procrastination, and builds up positive, happy feelings.

      A well-advised list and is also a helpful one to add to one's daily schedules.
