I had a bit better success with my fall list than I had with my summer list…I got a bit ambitious with some budget-hungry items. Two trips to New York and tickets to a show while leading into the holiday/gift giving season? Not so much! I also over-planned for things that needed doing in October, which was a busy month even without to do list items. Two of the unfinished items I’m not giving up on – I am going to carry over the Freedom Trail to my winter list, and seeing the Urban Nutcracker will go back on my list next fall.
In the end, I got five out of nine to dos checked off – not too bad! Even better, I think I’ve learned some lessons on seasonal to do list planning – this time around I spent a bit more time comparing my list to a calendar and my budget. Hopefully I’m really setting myself up for success this time around.
Without further ado, here’s my Winter 2011 To Do List!
