I also use a calendar to map out my to-do lists. I assign each task a day and time and then I have a visual of how everything will get done. I do this for holiday prep and well as in my business with clients. When we have huge projects such a moving deadline, it helps with their stress seeing a mapped out plan to our final destination...moving day.
