We’re excited to have ListPlanIt as one of our sponsors. We had the opportunity to interview them and get to know their company a little more recently:
Tell us about the history of ListPlanIt.
I had the idea for ListPlanIt in that chaotic week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. I had three young children, aged 2 to 6, and while I had always been a list maker, I was desperate for a simple way to keep track of and help manage the myriad of details that are involved in running a family and home. ListPlanIt has grown from 200 downloadable lists when it first launched in May 2007 to what it is today.
Tell us more about what ListPlanIt offers.
ListPlanIt is your complete resource with hundreds of lists all geared toward helping you get and stay organized. You’ll not only find downloadable lists, inventories, schedules, and to dos, but members now have the ability to create and store lists right in their ListPlanIt account and then access those lists from any device whether at home or on the go.
How can ListPlanIt help us save money?
Being organized means saving money. Whether using a list at the grocery store, packing for a trip, planning a birthday party, or preparing for any of life’s events, having a list means that you get what you need and not a lot of stuff that you don’t need. It means not running out at the last minute because you’ve forgotten something, which will now cost a premium. Lists mean saving time and anxiety, as well as money.
Do you have any new products or promotions coming up?
A few years ago, I wrote an eBook called 100 Days to Christmas that tied in with the vast number of holiday planning lists available at ListPlanIt. 100 Days to Christmas starts on September 16 and counts down the 100 days that lead up to Christmas day. The idea is to start planning early so that you can enjoy December to the fullest.
The following year, I wrote 100 Days of Summertime, which journeys from about Memorial Day to Labor Day and gives a reminder, task, or activity to help make the most of your summertime fun.
Last year, I wrote 100 Days of a New Year, which was just newly updated for 2014. You can currently get the 100 Days of a New Year, which includes 75 lists and planning pages to help set goals for 2014, for just $5!
