Let’s be real, being our own task manager can be a little intimidating. The to do list struggle is real and it never ends. Can I get an Amen on that one?! Fret not, my bizay and entrepreneurial friends. With a little planning and just the right office stationery, you can get those business ideas off the ground and runnin’.
From daily to-dos, to weekly scheduling, and the everyday, I’ve compiled a short list of the best notepads to stay organized. Whether you’re designing a business brainchild or just trying to keep it all together, that big, beautiful brain of yours just needs reassurance that yes, you will get shit done. All it takes is a pretty little pen and some lovely paperie to get’r going.
True story: when you’re a “writer-downer,” your brain is naturally set up for success. Check out this neat-o article about how writing things down positively impacts your memory or this one on how writing down on paper is more effective than computers. It’s science.
So, let’s start scribbling those to do’s down on paper, eh?

To Do List Notepad by Annie Dornan Smith
Minimalist and decluttered, I’m quite fond of this design for the times when there’s so many things looming in the weeks ahead. Sometimes a girl just needs a simple checklist to knock out them long-term to-dos (and endless list of household reno projects 😂).
