It’s no secret that I constantly look for ways to be more efficient. Especially since I can’t focus a lot of the time. This means a lot of lists surround (and threaten to smother) me, and post-it notes freaking everywhere. But for a while now I’ve been using a daily and weekly planner (which will be available soon on the Resources page {which you can get access to for free by subscribing below!}.)

That giant paper list does me no good, though, if I’m out running errands, picking up kids, etc. I don’t haul it around with me everywhere I go. What I have discovered, though, is that I check my phone’s home screen constantly because I have reminders and notifications buzzing all day long. Meaning: a to do list on my phone screen would do wonders

Now, I am a big supporter of changing bad habits to good ones, and creating systems to eliminate chaos to support that. But every once in a while, you have to sort of…structure things around habits that are already there that aren’t necessarily bad.

So my newest brilliant idea is filling out the ‘Day Planner’ sheet I’ve created, and snapping a pic of it, then setting it as my ‘lock screen’: essentially creating a to do list on my phone screen as my wallpaper. That way any time I push the home button, it comes up and I can see everything I need to do today. This is a huge time saver and keeps my productivity up. So it looks like this:

Pretty awesome, right??! It’s working great so far, and helps me remember things even when I’m out of the house and on the run!

So here are some options for how to make a to do list on your phone:

Option 1: Get your to do list created with a list app on your phone

There are many to do list apps for phones, but what makes it a pain is that you have to go into your phone to see the list every day. An example would be Goodnotes, or even the standard ‘Notes’ app that comes on iPhone. If you want to go this route you would simply:

  1. Create your to do list for your phone wallpaper
  2. Screenshot it
  3. Set it as the lock screen

Option 2: Get your to do list created by printing a planner page and writing everything

1. Get whichever file you’d rather use by clicking the appropriate image below

2. Either edit in Word or Google docs, or

3. Print it out for each day

4. Fill in info

5. Snap a pic

6. Set as ‘lock screen’

Option 3: Create your to do list on your phone wallpaper within a Word doc or Google doc and accessing it through your phone

We are now in the era where Microsoft Word docs and Google docs are available apps on your phone. This means you can (in theory) create and access documents whether on your desktop, tablet, or phone.

To use this option, you would need to:

  1. Load whichever app you choose,
  2. Create the template of your daily to do list, and
  3. Fill it out each day,
  4. Then screenshot it.
  5. Last would be to make that screenshot the ‘lock’ screen.

I’ve done my best to create a document that will highlight the time and date portion at the top of an iPhone screen, and then allow for the to do list on the phone wallpaper below that so nothing is obscured. This is available for free in the Resource Vault that you can access as a subscriber below. ?
