Remember the milk - a digital to-do list

I love making lists and having goals.  To-do lists, shopping lists, work priorities, monthly short-term goals.  And I think I've found the answer to my listmaking needs.  A digital to-do list, called "Remember the Milk."  Great business name!  I have to give a shout out to Rose (randomcreative); she's the one who got me thinking about a digital calendar, with her Saturday Link List about calendars and time.

Here's part of my main page of current things to do.  You can place three priority colors in the little boxes on the left, set due dates on the right side and create your own tag (the blue writing) for different line items.

Below are the lines that I tagged as "art journaling."  It only shows you the tagged items for the coming week.  There might be a way to expand this, but I haven't found it yet.      


In the morning, you will get reminders in your emails.  You can turn off this feature, but I kinda like it.

Every time you write a new task down, you'll have the chance to put in your information, such as your due date, tags, and a URL.

I really like being able to write a URL address.  For example, my art journaling teacher showed us how to use aluminum foil in our artwork, and I wanted to remember to try it out.  So I put the due date Nov 5th and where the tutorial was online.   If you want to update your information, all  you do is click on the line item and you can change or add things. 

Where's the milk is super easy to use and you'll learn more about it as you go along.  You can synchronize Remember the milk to your iPad and iPhone, to Google Calendar and much, much more.  And it's so smart!  I find myself using it all the time, and highly recommend it.

Way to complicated for me. By the time I figured out how to do all that---well, you know; I probably wouldn't anyway!
I'll just write a daily list by hand!

I put dates in Google Calendar and forget to look.

My to do list is by hand too, but this looks like a great tool.

You have a big list! I try to keep lists but only for that day or I get overwhelmed. You did remind me that I need to do that 7 questions thing too. :)

What a clever tool! I like the idea of getting email alerts. It keeps your accountable.
