5 Must Follow Tips For Your To-Do List

Take your to do list to the next level with these 5 easy tips! from Musings of a Museum Fanatic #organize

With 2018 just a couple of days away I know it's on most people's lists to get lots accomplished in the new year. I know I've definitely got plenty I want to accomplish! I know that one of my secret weapons is my daily to do list. Without this I would definitely be lost and probably not get half as much done as I do! I find it hard to accomplish my list sometimes when that happens I try to use these must follow tips for getting your to-do list accomplished.

Make one list
I used to keep multiple lists for different subjects but that ended up being too difficult. Then you have to go back and look at multiple lists, you might loose one list. It's much easier to just keep one list! I will say I do usually keep a to do list at work and a personal one. Since my job list is very separate from my personal one they are their own thing. The work list stays at work and is only applicable while I'm at work. Say you're a full time blogger who works from home throughout the day your work and personal lists will probably one large one.


Write it down as you think of it

I'm not a fan of writing things in order or priority. I probably didn't think of things to add to the list in order of priority, I thought of it when I remembered it. Trying to list everything in priority order might end up with large gaps and weird formatting. So I keep it simple and just write it in order of when I think of it. I've mentioned before that I always have a little notebook with me for blog ideas but I also use it to keep my to do list. 


Cross of the simple ones first

This might seem silly to say but I know that I'm actually really guilty of this one. I'll let something like reply to a certain email sit on that list for days, maybe even longer because for whatever silly reason I'm just not into it. When in reality it would take 2 minutes and it would be crossed off the list! Pick out those 10 minute or less tasks and just get them crossed off the list. You'll feel more productive and better about yourself if you do.


Keep the list in view and check back regularly

This one is a huge one for me. If I don't see it then it usually doesn't exist. Doesn't help me if my little notebook stays in my purse once I'm home does it? Nope it doesn't. Break that baby out once you're home and make sure to refer back to it. Maybe you didn't take the time earlier to cross off those easy tasks, take a few minutes and do that when you check it the third time.


Realizing your limitations 

There are only so many hours in a day and you can only do so much. Don't beat yourself up when you don't get everything crossed off in a single day. Just add those items to your new list and move on.

What is your tip for getting that to-do list taken care of each day?

6 Tips and Tricks for Organizing Your Blog

Blog need some more organization? Check out these 6 tips that I use to keep mine more #organized. from Musings of a Museum Fanatic

I have been continuing my long and seemingly never ending saga of organizing myself and this blog. I think everyone, Kevin included, might be so sick of my talking about and working on said organizing but I've come to realize that being organized in the blog world and life make things soooooo much easier! Since I've been continuing my saga here are some more random tips that I've been discovering really do help.

Work ahead
I have shared how I've been working ahead and using my Erin Condren planner before but this concept is just so key. This past week I decided to work ahead not just today and tomorrow but this day next week. Work ahead a month and make sure you've contacted your sponsors and gotten their information so you can have most of your tweets ready to go, just waiting for their links or have their info for a giveaway all ready to go a week and a half before.

Write it down
I always tend to have some sort of scrap paper or little notepad with me. If I didn't write things down I wouldn't remember anything ... from the random thing I remembered we just ran out of to the really amazing blog post idea. Going a step further with my working ahead and writing down I have been making drafts of my next posts to write and doing bullet points of what I want to discuss, adding photo, video or Pinterest links. It really helps to get some ideas down early and you can go back and flesh out a couple points at a time or sit down again all at once.

Blog email
Making yourself a blog email is oh so helpful. I have a personal one, Pampered Chef one and blog email. It makes things so much easier to sort and keep track of when it's not all mixed in together.

Email Folders
This one isn't just for your blog email trust me. I have probably 30 different folders for various things that are going on in life, from "Family" to "Photos". Folders are a great way to save an item you need to come back to in the future but it won't clutter up your inbox. The key here is when you're totally finished with and don't need the email or the information anymore is to delete it completely from your email. Otherwise you might end up with 3,000 emails in your "Recipe" folder like I did!

Ask
This is probably something that most people wouldn't even think to do. I ask other bloggers, people in online forums, Kevin, my parents, the IT guy at work. There are tons of people you know and connect with on a regular basis who can help you with whatever random thing you're working on. I have just emailed or commented to so many bloggers asking questions and you know what they are usually so willing to help and answer them. I bug Stephanie all the time with random questions about how do you do this or where is this on Gmail. Most people are pretty technologically savvy and you just never know what they might be able to help you with

Google It
Lastly if all else fails just head to the internet and just search! I have Googled so many different things lately, from how to do a certain task on my museum database to how to make a GIF. Guess what? I've come up with answers to pretty much all of the questions too! It's amazing what people share out there and you might just learn even more about your search by simply Googling it.

Have you learned any new blogging organization tips lately? Like I said you just need to ask right ; )

8 Gift Ideas for Your History Nerd


My goal with gift giving is to always find something I know the person will love and love to use. This is my mantra for every gift giving holiday but especially for Christmas. I've always found that gifting for my fellow history buffs is a crazy task in itself. This year I've pulled together a list of 8 great gift ideas that the history lover in your life will ... love!

Photo Field Museum Website
Scroll Pearl Hoop Earrings - $475
Ever since the Field Museum came out with their line of jewelry inspired by the architectural details of the museum I've been in love with them! These are definitely a budget buster of a gift but if you're going to get your history buff a nice piece of jewelry anyways why not make it something neat like these?
Photo from Frank Lloyd Wright website

Frank Lloyd Wright Roberts House Trivet - $22.95
I always try to work in my interests and things I love in subtle ways so they don't just glaringly stick out and are functional. This beautiful trivet is a perfect way to do that. It brings in the history and artistic beauty of Wright's designs in a very functional way.

Ancestry DNA - $99
This was something I asked for and got for Christmas a couple years ago. It was a fantastic gift that will really keep on giving as I work more on our family genealogy. Be sure to sign up for their email list because there are usually some great deals and coupons for the DNA kits.

Photo from the Smithsonian website

Jackie Kennedy Crystal Orb Necklace - $125
Your history buff will appreciate this beautiful 18k gold toned with faceted Swarovski® crystal orbs necklace and you'll love the price. This one is definitely not quite as budget busting as the Scroll Pearl Hoop Earrings but just as beautiful


The Devil in the White City
Any history nerd will appreciate a book gift. As someone who is passionate about her city I would highly recommend The Devil in the White City. Be sure to figure out what time period or subject your history nerd loves so you can get them the perfect book for them.

A History of the World in 100 Objects
If you're unable to figure out what their favorite time period or subject is this book is a wonderful option. 

National Geographic Classics: Mysteries of the Past DVD Collection - $24.95
There are so many awesome documentaries and shows related to history out there. National Geographic has some awesome choices. Mysteries of the Past stuck out as one I would definitely add to my collection. Other places to check out History Channel for other awesome history related DVDs.

Membership to your favorite Museum - Varies by museum
This is my favorite item off my list. Your history buff or museum fanatic has that title for a reason, why not get them the gift that keeps on giving? Plus if you become a member for smaller museums in your area you'll be supporting a great cause.

These are just a few ideas for the history nerd in your life. There are so many other wonderful gifts that they would love. Check out museum online and in person gift shops, and other retailers for some wonderful ideas. What would you get the history nerd in your life?

8 Things I'm #SorryNotSorry About

One thing I always joke about it the fact that I have that good old Lutheran guilt. It's true sometimes I feel so guilty over certain things, like someone I like not getting invited to a lunch out when I wasn't even the one doing the inviting. It drives people in my life crazy. While I am working on certain aspects of that guilt there are some things that I will always says sorry NOT sorry for!


Sorry not sorry ...

... that I will belt 80s music at the top of my lungs and dance like a maniac when it comes on no matter where I am

... about how much I love Disney

... that I will show everyone the newest picture of my niece

... when it's snowing out and I'm in the right lane (not on a highway) going 25-30

... that I will totally judge stores who carry some crazy stuff that I'm pretty sure no one is buying

... when I have the last of the ice cream from the container without asking

... that sometimes I'm really busy and I don't respond to an email or a text right away

... that I don't have time to put on make up most mornings

... sometimes my leadership abilities sometimes take over.

6 Gifts for the Person Who Hates Stuff

Gift giving can be a piece of cake for some people, you see something and instantly you know they would love it and need it. Not everyone is like that unfortunately. We all have that person in our lives that doesn't need any stuff or doesn't want more stuff in their lives. These people are so stinking hard to find a good gift for it's ridiculous. I've got 5 sure fire gifts for the person in your life who hates stuff.



Experiences
Since becoming more of adult this has become my favorite gift for people for any occasion! It can be anything you can think of and sometimes I've even combined it with other items on this list. One example was last year we gave my sister in law Bethany (and technically Louie by association) the gift of an evening out with each while Kevin and I babysat along with some cash from us to go towards dinner.

For a wedding gift one of my friends gave us gift certificates to Broadway in Chicago. Kevin and I had developed an enjoyment for seeing shows together so this was perfect for us. It was something memorable that we got to enjoy together. Keep the idea of giving memories in mind with this gift!

Consumables
I am a huge fan of the food gift. I love making treats for coworkers for Christmas! To me it's not only something that won't clutter up their house but since you take time to make the gift it's extra special. Giving something consumable doesn't end at food though.

Think about what's something this person uses all the time and would love to get more of? I know for Stephanie that's a certain scent of the 3 wick candles at Bath & Body Works. The past couple of years I've made sure to include at least one as part of her birthday/Christmas gifts since I know she enjoys the scent so much and it only comes out once a year.

The necessities 
This sort of goes along with consumables.I'm actually planning on telling the parents this year some suggestions for stocking stuffers for us. Things like Aveeno and the gum flavors Kevin loves to always have on hand. Since we go through these items quickly and use them all the time it would be awesome to get them as part of our present.

Maybe you're right out of college in your first place on your own. There isn't any shame in asking for some of the super fancy super soft toilet paper for part of your Christmas gift, that stuff isn't cheap!!

Pampering
This might be more of a girl thing but this is a fantastic gift! I gave my best friend Jackie an afternoon of getting pedicures for her birthday this spring. It took us until July to actually get together and accomplished but we did it and it was fabulous. Treat your BFF or mom to manis, pedis and a nice afternoon hang out. With everyone so busy during the holidays it might be even better after the holidays since you both can unwind and catch up. Plus I'm not sure about anyone else's toes but mine always need the TLC in winter.

Give towards something
From 2015 through May of 2016 I earned money and asked for gift certificates to save up for my amazing 8 hour spa day. I made sure to let both my family and Kevin's know that I was saving up for this extravagant day. They were more than happy to contribute as their Christmas and birthday gifts that year since they knew I really wanted it and it was a big splurge for me.

Maybe your cousin who you always exchange gifts with is working on saving up for a big trip the next spring. Check to see if they've already booked the hotel or flight and see if you can give them a gift card to help with that cost.

Donate
Maybe they don't want stuff but I bet there is something in their life that can be made into a donation. Do they love pets? Maybe there is a shelter they donate to regularly that you could donate to in their name. Maybe someone close to them has had breast cancer and that's close to their heart. Donate to their charity of choice relating to that. This is a gift that gives twice!

Do you have anyone in your life that hates stuff? What do you give them as a gift?
