Hey there! I'm Linda! I was born and raised in Maine, spent the last 6 years in Portland, and now call the Boston area my home!
Most days you can find me playing on the floor with my daughter, writing love letters to my husband, and reading with a cup of tea!
I am mostly known for being able to find all the things my husband has lost, making as much food as I can from scratch, my obsession with chips and salsa, and my mad organization skills.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in business, it’s that if you do something more than once, you make a template or a workflow for it. I never thought to apply this to my regular life until MONTHS ago when I heard Amanda Hedgepeth talk about making lists for her family. And I thought, “that’s a really good idea!” Eventually I started to recognize all the things I did on a regular daily/weekly/monthly basis and I started to create my own lists.
They were so small and short. Then Amanda released an entire set of INCREDIBLE lists! I got the whole bundle when they were released over the summer, and last month I finally went through them all and made lists that worked specifically for me. It was so so nice to have a guide as I went through these.
What I love about Amanda and the way she’s presented these lists is that her message is to make it your own however it works for you. I don’t use the daily lifeflow list every single day. I use it on the days where I feel like there’s a lot of extra things going on that I don’t want to forget (like call the insurance, remind Steven about this, etc. etc.) because they don’t belong in my planner – it’d get too full and overwhelming!
The lists I’ve created are: daily // weekly // monthly // yearly // overnight packing list (GOLD!) // diaper bag list // deep clean list.
Not sure if this is something you need in your life? Here’s why I think they’re so helpful:
Amanda has created such a comprehensive group of lifeflow lists, that I’m pretty sure nothing has been left out! If you’re a list person, these are for you! It may feel a little silly at first, but they eventually become part of the norm and it doesn’t feel strange anymore!
