Sticky Note Solution

I have a confession to make.  I am a list person.  To-do lists, grocery lists, life lists, you name it, I've written one (today).  But writing lists often wastes paper, so I am finding a less wasteful way to feed my list compulsion.  

If you were to look at my laptop right now you would find several electronic sticky notes outlining my many lists.  I think I may even have a list of my lists.  This feature comes on my mac but PC users can get electronic stickies as well.  

It may be a tiny step even for the most prolific of list makers, but each tiny step makes a difference.  

Please tell me I am not the only list-aholic?  Has anyone tried something like this?  Do you enjoy it?

my husband comes home every night with pockets-full of notes, which he then dumps on the computer desk. By the end of the week, it's a mountain of notes! Some of them have ISBN numbers and that's all. Once they end up in the trash basket, I scoop them out and put them in the recycling bag. Also, I think I get at least one e-mail a day in which he has listed something-or-other: what he's going to do that night in sequence; what his plans are for the weekend; games he's going to play. He has an excel database for everything.

I write my lists on any leftover scrap materials that I have, old envelopes/receipts/anything. I also make my most pressing lists the background on my computer, so that I see them any time I'm on my computer. Keep up the great, much needed green work!

I love making lists on my mobile. It's always with you, you can set reminders and it's completely paper free!
