Well, I have tried numerous ways and it looks like I cannot get the list here any other way than typing it manually. It is long!
It looks a LOT more complicated than it really is in real life...
I make liberal use of the categories function and code everything:
and plenty more...those are just the ones that apply to my task list right now.
Every task I enter gets a reminder set or this simply would not work for me. I don't go looking for tasks! LOL They pop up on my screen as reminders and I click snooze or completed.
In the 'Business' category (I am using the term 'business' loosely), I have one weekly task that I call "finances/paperwork". Every Tuesday I go through our in box and handle the paperwork that has accumulated since last Tuesday and then I match financial transactions between Quicken, our financial institution (online), and our physical receipts. When the monthly statements are here, I balance accounts. I spend a maximum of one hour and prioritize the tasks. Today, it only took me 15 minutes. Other tasks in this category:
1.Run cash flow report (quarterly)
2.Update financial statement (semi-annual)
3.Taxes (prep in Feb, actual in April)
Um, yes, I have a degree in Finance and worked in the field for years!
In my 'Daughter' category, I have one task that comes up three times a year. I call it "dress up" (a game) and it is basically where she plays model and tries on every article of clothing she owns (over a few days) and we decide what gets passed along to someone else and what she needs more of, etc. It is set for the month before her birthday (so I can let family know what she needs and to allow room for new items), the week after school gets out, and in mid-November. I am currently helping her with a long-term project of collecting postcards from each state, so that comes up every other week.
My 'Family' category has the following:
1.Email family pictures and update (every 2 months; our relatives live far away and this keeps them in touch)
2.Update stats on DD (semi-annual; we weigh and measure her and I type up some details, I keep it as a 'note' in the same program)
3.Spin the mattress (monthly; includes stripping the bed COMPLETELY and washing everything and line-drying)
4.Photo project (monthly; I keep up with our digital pictures this way)
5.Replace toothbrushes (every 4 months; mine don’t always need to be tossed, but DH & DD are harder on theirs)
Any family events I want to research go here, too. When they become planned events, I move them to the calendar on a specific date.
My ‘Holiday’ category has the following:
1.Swap décor (first of the month for the holidays we have décor)
2.Put away Christmas décor (annually; we get it taken down easily, but getting it put away requires a reminder…LOL)
I have a lot of date-specific holiday prep directly in my calendar, such as planning the menus and taking the family holiday photograph, etc.
My ‘House’ category may be all you wanted:
1.Dust upstairs (every two weeks; I dust every week…this guides me on which floor)
2.Dust downstairs (every two weeks; I dust every week…this guides me on which floor)
3.Run Roomba (every Mon & Thurs; it vacuums the kitchen one day and the living room the other…I also do a small space, if needed)
4.Run Scooba (every Tues & Fri; it vacuums and mops the kitchen one day and I pick two small areas the other day…upstairs bathrooms or foyer and laundry/powder room)
5.Vacuum upstairs (every Friday; I do a quickie one week and a better job the next…well, that’s the idea, anyway…LOL...this is very new because I was forgetting to vacuum the upstairs)
6.Home Blessing Hour (every Monday; I just pick whatever needs the most love and spend an hour doing it)
7.Run vinegar through dishwasher (monthly; with a full load)
8.Wipe down ceiling fans, windowsills, and baseboards (monthly)
9.Vacuum sofas and chair (quarterly; we rarely eat outside the kitchen)
I do laundry every day and don’t need a reminder for that. Same with dishes and many other tasks. I use tasks for developing new habits and/or keeping track of the less frequent things.
My ‘Me’ category:
1.Rotate toiletries (monthly; I get bored with the same old thing, so I rotate within my own stash; I enjoy ‘shopping’ in my own cabinet; I tend to use things up now and buy far less)
2.Music project (monthly; I am working on my music list)
3.Project day (weekly; Wednesdays tend to be my most open day of the week, so I pick a project on Sunday and make sure I have the necessary items by Tuesday evening…these range widely from volunteer research to scrapbooking to home improvement projects to gardening to helping a friend and event planning and so forth)
In my ‘Mother/Daughter’ category:
1.Manicures/pedicures (every two weeks; at the very least, I trim all 40 female nails…LOL; sometimes we extend this to be more pampering and fun; massages and fun hairstyles and just general girly stuff)
2.Hair cut (quarterly; I cut DD’s hair or at least assess the situation)
Other things come up that I put in for DD’s school breaks. She's on a year-round schedule. I use tasks as a holding place for ideas without specific dates. Specific date items go on the calendar.
Lastly, I am the captain of our playgroup, so I research and plan events and type up/send out a monthly calendar for the group. I survey the group annually.
Oh, I volunteer a lot and research projects go here, too. I happen to have finished those recently.
Goodness, I hope this helps someone! LOL It took a lot longer than I thought it would, but it was kind of fun to see my task list in a different way.
