Hi Marilyn,Isn't that the worst! I've definitely misplaced a checklist before and it's certainly frustrating. If it's an on-the-go-checklist like a grocery list I keep it in my planner. I normally take my planner everywhere I go, so that works for me.
As Dana said above, if it's a specific checklist I would keep it close to the area I perform the task. So if I had a cleaning checklist, I would put that next to my cleaning supplies rack.
Anyone else have any suggestions?

Wow - that's GREAT Ron! Thanks for sharing. Great to hear you've found such success with checklists. Sounds like you've developed a really streamlined process!

After 27 years, I now swear by them.I type it up each morning and email /text copies to our cell phones and email accounts so we have all bases covered. As things are done I text the update to all cells and email accounts.As the "Honey Do List" is always in flux, we are able to adjust without speaking.For Christmas, we have a Master List of all Recipiants with their own section. The sizes, age and preferences are listed at the top and a numbered list follows based on what we see throughout the year as items of interest or items selected by the recipiant as a "Want". We ask our family members to cut out adds or take a picture with their cell phones of items they want.In 2010, we had 34 people on our shopping list including two Grand Children.By listing each item , the source locations to purchase with pricing, we need only to place a check mark in the columns for ordered, received, wrapped gifts to know our status at any time.From the master list we can select items to share with others so they may have a chance to purchase gifts that will be meaningful to the recipiant. No ugly ties here.
