What to include in a monthly to do list.
Go from overwhelmed to organized with a monthly to do list template.
One of the best ways to get organized (and stay organized) is to create a monthly to-do list. A monthly list gives you the “big picture” without letting anything fall through the cracks. And if you want to make things even easier for yourself, invest in a monthly to do list template. Check out these to-do list tips to get started.
Visualize your month.
Start by picturing the month ahead, one day at a time. Mentally walk through your routines and start writing everything down. Here are some examples of what you can include:
- Pay rent and other bills
- Work deadlines
- Create or update a budget
- Clean out old emails
- Shred postal mail
- Meal prep
- Grocery shop
Create a template.
Not every month is the same, but chances are there’s a lot of overlap. For example, most people pay rent or a mortgage each month. Think of all those recurring tasks and use them to structure a monthly to do list template or a to do list monthly planner.
You can also use digital lists and duplicate them each month to make this even easier. And if you already have a to do list in a PDF, use it as a starting point and edit as you go.
