Busy Mom’s Printable To-Do List

Is there anyone else like me who loves to make to-do lists?

There is just something freeing and empowering about crossing things off that list, so much so that sometimes I even write tasks I’ve already completed just so that I can mark them off.

Ha! Yes, I’m an odd cookie. I know that.

But you know what I need even more than my regular to-do list?

I need a to-do list that also includes a space for my daily meal plan, a space for prayer requests, and a space for bills that must be paid that day.

But you know what would make that all-in-one to-do list even better?!

If it was pretty!

You know us busy moms, we want everything to be pretty.

A to-do list doesn’t seem nearly as daunting if it’s full of pretty colors now does it?

Yes, I would like one of those to-do lists. Wouldn’t you?

So, without further ado I present to you “My Daily Musts” an all-in-one, pretty, printable to-do list. Daily areas included are: must do (general to do list), must go (places to go, appts, errands, etc), must pay (bills that need to be paid that day), must pray (your daily prayer requests), must cook (daily meal plan), and must clean (daily cleaning).

  1. Thanks! I love the color one, but hate to use my colored ink! lol

      I like the color too, but color ink is expensive! That’s why I also made a grayscale one. It’s just not as pretty. 😉

  2. Wonderful! Pinning and printing!

  3. I can pretend I’m organized!

  4. Awesome! Just downloaded and then shared!

  5. That’s so funny… I thought I was the only once that added completed things to my list so it looks like I did more! Thanks for the list. 🙂

  6. I agree, pretty is better! And I, too,add items I’ve already completed just for the empowering satisfaction of striking through them!!

  7. I am so glad I am not the only one who will add things to the list so I can cross it off! 🙂

  8. Those are awesome. I just started keeping a home management binder and the daily to do list is a must have. Thanks for sharing this. I am stopping by from Enchanted homeschool mom. I’m a new follower on Twitter! Hope to see you at True Aim!

  9. This is just perfect! I’m constantly referencing a page with my meal plan for the week, a separate one with my to-do’s, etc. And, of course, I love that it’s pretty! Thank you!

  10. Ooh! I just noticed the “must pray” section–I need to work on being more intentional about that, so thanks for that part, too! And to save on color printing, I think I’ll print a copy or two and laminate them so I can use whiteboard markers and re-use them. That way, I won’t be wasting paper, either. 🙂

  11. You can print it in color, and keep it in a page protector in a binder. I really like the layout of the list! 🙂
