18 Preston To-Do List

Last week I mentioned that I had put together a Google Doc for our home to-do list. I planned on writing about it last weekend too, but that didn't happen. So what better thing to do while I'm waiting to get a haircut. 
Between the two of us, Meg and I probably have half a dozen different places we keep our to-do lists for the house. We have notebooks, binders, iPhone notes and of course, Pinterest. (Meg, Matt)
I was finally able to combine all of the lists into one place. Google Drive offers the best place for a wired family to share a collaborative document. We can share it between the two of us and access it from all of our devices. Google Drive has fairly recently come out with new apps for the iPhone and iPad that give you almost all of the same editing capabilities as on a full computer. 
The list needed to have a few pieces of critical information. We needed the name of the task, the estimated cost, priority, timeframe and time commitment and difficulty.  Once we actually start doing the projects, we'll probably have a completed check box and actual cost. That will help show us all of the awesome things we've done around the house.

So far we've got a pretty good start to the list. Now we just need to start banging them out. Especially the ones with the low cost and time commitment. I think that's going to be the best use of this list, a quick glance to see what can be done right now.
Let us know what you think. We're always looking to make things better, so what should we add? A little bit of color would probably be nice, and I'm sure we'll get there, but the important thing was to get it started.

  1. We use Google Drive, too! (I still call it Google Docs half the time, haha.) I like it for Christmas lists, our overall budget, all sorts of things.
