If procrastination is your middle name, we feel your pain — it happens to the best of us. But these pretty little to-do lists are just the visual motivation you need to stop putting things off and start handling your day like a boss.
Check 'em out, and let us know how they work for you.
1. Industrial paper roll
Who knew good old fashioned butcher paper could make for a totally pulled-together look? And a simple roll pinned up on the wall in your kitchen is the perfect backdrop for lists of all kinds. Find similar paper holders at Ikea here.
2. Chalkboard command center
A chalkboard is great for to-do lists because you can literally wipe the slate clean every time you finish up your tasks. Hobby Lobby has a ton of different chalkboards to choose from, so you can start a cute command center of your own.
3. Floral inspiration
Sometimes a little pop of color and some pretty flowers are all you need to conquer the day. Download Asaline's free printable to-do list here.
4. Sticky notes
We all know that to-do lists are ever evolving, so sticky notes are a natural way to make changes. That and ripping the sticky note down when you've completed a task is just so satisfying.
5. Chalkboard sticky note wall
If you can't decide between a chalkboard command center and a sticky note list, the good news is you don't have to. The chalkboard sticky note wall is the best of both worlds. All it takes is some chalkboard paint and a little bit of imagination.
6. Hanging to-do lists
Sallyjshim's hanging to-do list is brilliantly perfect for people who like everything laid out in front of them.
7. Goal cards
Goal cards are great because they extend beyond a daily to-do and let us plan out a week — or a month — in advance. The Pretty has a free PDF download and instructions on how to put these together here.
8. The all-inclusive list
This printable list is major: It covers everything you need to do in a day, down to staying hydrated.
9. Room for notes
This handy printable is a lifesaver if you like to take notes along the way as you complete your tasks.
10. Making the most of today
"Making the most of today" is a totally appropriate mantra for a to-do list. After all, isn't that what it's all about? Get In Honor of Design's free printable here.
