Picture Frame To-Do List


I’ll let you in on a little secret, in addition to being an organizational freak goddess I am also obsessed with lists. I know you’re probably shocked. I love making lists, I love crossing things off my lists- you get the picture. I have lists for chores, groceries, school, blogging; you name it and I have a list for it! I know I have a problem, but the first step is admitting you have a problem, right?

The only problem with my lists is that I can never seem to find them when I need them. I need a list telling me the titles of all my lists and where they are kept. Stop judging! A friend suggested a big dry erase board above my desk but I just knew I would end up knocking over my iced tea every time I went to write or erase something from it. I tried an altered clipboard to hold my lists which was super cute but still wasn’t doing it for me.

When I saw this idea on Pinterest from Eighteen25 last year {yes, it’s taken me that long to get around to it!} I knew it would solve all my problems. Or at least the problems that involve lists, let’s not get too carried away.

I’m including a free printable for you so you can make your own picture frame list too. Just click on the picture below to download the list.

I used a Vis-a-Vis marker to write on the picture frame but you can also use dry erase markers.

    Vanessa I love this! I do have a big dry erase board I write on, but this is WAY more fun! LOL Here is my new favorite thing to do too… I take a picture of my list so I have it in my phone! Much easier than typing it all into my little memo thing on my phone! Thanks for sharing.

    Love it! However school starts in a week and I can’t make any more lists! Mine are overflowing and growing out of the trash! Wish summer was longer!

  7. Love this idea! I’m putting it on my to do list right now. lol. Last year, thanks to the FlyLady website, I made a similar frame for our weekly dinner menu. My family loves it.

  8. Oh, I am using this idea in my computer center. When the children have a turn, I can check off their names and then know at a glance who still needs a turn before we wipe it clean and start again! I have some free standing acrylic frames that I think would work great!
