When Family LISTS Come In Handy

When we created the To Do Lists we imagined all sorts of ways that families would be able to use them to communicate.


  • Shared Grocery lists let everyone plug in what is needed and whoever is at the store can reference the list and pick things up


  • Christmas Shopping lists can be shared between grandparents/aunts and uncles/etc so everyone can see what the kids are hoping for


  • Chore lists can be easily accessed by parents and kids


The list is endless. (pun intended)


I have a list of the books I want to read.  A list of potato recipes (and the links to them) that I want to try, a list of possible blog posts, and a wish list of things for the business.


But the second to last one below is by far is my favorite list. 



For the past two weeks we were Hurricane Sandy refugees without power and living an hour and a half away at my parents house.   Last Tuesday I drove back home to check on the apartment, get some additional clean underwear and vote, and halfway home Sophie let me know that she wanted me to pick up some things for a bat mitzvah she was going to on Saturday.  To make things easy she had created a Hatchedit list for the two of us and put everything she wanted on the list.


It was really great.  I walked into her room, and was so happy that she had so thoughtfully tried to make things easy for me that I even ignored the piles of things strewn across the bed and the floor.  I was floating on air – so my feet never even touched them. 

And on bat mitzvah day - she had everything she needed - and Straight hair!!


How does your family incorporate lists into its communications?
