ListPlanIt Review and Giveaway!

I'm a list person.  I have to write things down or I forget them (usually within 5 minutes) and nothing gets done.  As you've also read I'm a Capricorn which means that I LOVE to organize and anything organization related.  I once tried to make myself a wonderful home management binder with sections and forms.  It was a great idea, and I even found a couple free printables around the web, but the forms just weren't working for me and I was having a hard time making my own as I just didn't know where to start.


Recently I came across ListPlanIt where there are over 400 printable lists for about every topic you can imagine.  I'm going to try really hard not to make this post sound like a sales pitch, but I'm seriously in love with ListPlanIt so I may sound a bit infomercial (but you can win a membership yourself so you will want to hear all the cool things available right?).

What it is- ListPlanIt is an organizational website filled with blank and pre-filled forms for everything from holiday planning to business planning.  You can plan your day, your summer, your club events, your camping trip, even your American Idol season (seriously, I'm not even kidding, there is a list for American Idol die hards).  Check out some of the FREE lists here.  Once you fall in love, which I know you will, you have a couple options.  You can subscribe, one lucky reader will win a years subscription here, or you can purchase e-planners for download on a specific subject.  (note- subscribers have access to all lists included in each e-planner, it's a little confusing at first because they look like they are extra, but really the fee is for those who do not wish to subscribe and just want to buy a few list forms)

What I'm loving-
  • I have the download membership (there is a download level and a printable level available).  I love that I can download the form to my desktop and it's always there at my fingertips to print out. 
  • Pre-filled and blank options.  The moment I fell in love with ListPlanIt was when I found the monthly cleaning schedule all mapped out and filled in for me.  It tells me exactly what to do each day of the week to keep on top of my clutter and keep the house company worthy at any time (and with kids that's HUGE!).  I had printed this list and had it on my table when my mom came over and spotted it, she snatched it right up (it's that good)! Good thing I could just print out a new one. It does have a blank option if you prefer your own schedule.
  • Available topics.  The lists are broken up into categories.  Each category has a generous list of forms for anything you could possibly need.  
  •  The lists have all the things I would put on them along with things I didn't even think of.  So it's all the forms I would love to make myself, but don't have to!
  • You can print out and fill in yourself -or- fill in the forms on your computer and print them out!
What I'm not loving-
I've got nothing, sorry. I love it.

I could go on and on about all the things ListPlanIt has to offer, but I'm sure you would have more fun checking it out for yourself than reading my raves.  So here's the deal.  Leave a comment on this post about which list looks like it would be most helpful to you, or one you find most interesting.  I will randomly choose a winner of a one year subscription on Thursday, May 20th. Good luck!

    4. We are going on vacation in a couple weeks and I'm already freaking out so I think the Travel Planning Lists would help out a lot. I love lists and do much better when I have one and follow it! Great giveaway!

    5. I'm a total list-maker...and you're making me choose one? Oh my, all those lists are so great! I think Home Management or Meal Planning would be on top of my "list" for faves though. ;)

    15. Oooo I could pick loads....I think the family eplanner looks good - may well have to take a closer peep at that one. The meal planner would be fab too - and theres a clubs one too!

      So many lists, so little time! Would I ever get time to do "things" or would I be making lists all day????

    23. I have List Mania - wonder if they have a List that will help me keep up with my Lists? :) I love the Home Improvement List - sometimes just getting it down on paper and organizing your thoughts about all the home improvements is enough to calm my ADD brain. That site is way cool - thanks! Karen

      Where can I find the monthly cleaning schedule?? I could use some help staying on top of the junkheap, er, clutter. :) I have been trying myjobchart.com.
      I also love the meal planning list. I feel like that could help me save some money and sanity.

    31. Oooh - maybe that cleaning one would actually make me do it (since I got sick of Fly Lady real fast...) :)

    32. I would definately say that the financial planning list would be of extreme help to us. We are slowly drowning and this looks like it may help us get things under control again.

      Thank you for the chance.

    34. Ohhh...I am also a list fanatic. I love the collection under Family Matters...keeping track of appointments, chores, and lists for babysitters...all of those would be handy!
