Another List, Pt. 2, or Why the World Needs List-Makers

Today's post is brought to you by the letter "L." "L" stands for "lists."

If you've been following at home, you'll know I love lists. You'll also know I blogged about lists in list form, here.

Yep. That's how nerdy I am. I'm spending not only one post, but TWO posts talking about how great lists are. But that's not the point. The point is, LISTS.

Reasons Why The World Needs Lists
1. If you make a list, you won't need to remember.
Don't you hate it when you can't remember the thing you told yourself you were going to do? Or that stuff you were going to get from the grocery store? If you write it down, you won't forget. More importantly, you won't need to remember it.


2. Lists are cool.
I make lists. Lists are cool.


3. Lists make everything go more smoothly.
For example, I made it in and out of Walmart this evening in a timely manner, thanks to my shopping list! And I only experienced homicidal feelings once.

4. They make you seem organized.
 You may actually be a slob like me, but if you make a list, people will think, "Hey, they made a list. That's something that organized people do. They must be organized too!"


Moral of the story? Make lists. They're cool. They make you look organized. You won't need to work to remember stuff. Everything will go quicker. And you won't kill people.

  2. "And you won't kill people."

    Unless "kill people" is one of the items on your list. Homicidal maniacs can be organized too.

    But in all seriousness, yes, lists are awesome. They make me feel so accomplished. I would be so much more productive if I actually made (and then stuck to) a list every day.

  3. Lists ARE cool. Just like bow ties. And fezes. And Stetsons.

    Ahem.

    Seriously, I need to make lists more, rather than just going "Oh, I only need three things, I'll remember them all." Because that ends in my brain going "LOL, nope!", and me having to go BACK to the supermarket 20 minutes later... #fail

    1. The not killing people is a really undervalued benefit as far as lists go, I think. I'm glad it was a major selling point.
