It's so much nicer to be organized when your organizing is pretty. I think that having lists out where I can see them all at once is easier for me. I've tried to keep binders with my lists of "to do's" but they always end up falling to the wayside. I'm very visual, so having this displayed in my kitchen where I can see it helps, I think. Plus, it's got pretty paper with scalloped edges and darling buttons - who wouldn't want to reference that thing all day?
(This is kind of like when I realized that the closet was in terrible disarray and needed to be cleaned and organized so I took everything out and covered pretty boxes with saved wrapping paper. Everything, after a while, ended up in the prettified boxes, so all the time spent covering the boxes wasn't for not, but it is an awfully round-about way of doing things. Dan laughed at me for it, but I think he had to admit, the shoe boxes full of stuff looked so much nicer than just plain old shoe boxes.)
