{Day 2} Whatever You Want Checklists

Welcome to Day 2 of the 31 Days 31 Printables series.  I seem to have started trend of ignoring my own limits.  Just like yesterday’s post, today’s post has three printables in it.  I know I said yesterday that I shared all three at once because I didn’t want to spend three days sharing similar printables just to keep to the 1 per day limit.  However, I couldn’t get the checklists out of my head.  In fact, as I was working on the checklist post yesterday I kept thinking about a comment I received with a suggestion for a printable.  I kept coming back to the idea that a check list would be a great solution for that request, so I got to work on it right away.  Then I started thinking about all the ways checklists can be used, and I decided what I really needed was a blank one that could be used for anything and everything.  So, I would like to introduce you to the Whatever You Want Checklists.


Day 2 - Printable Whatever You Want Checklists. Are you a brownie, girl guides or scout leader? Use the badge tracker to help you keep track of what your kids have earned. Use one of the blank checklists for anything you want, the sky is the limit!



In case you missed it, yesterday’s printable was an update to my spring cleaning printable.  You can read the whole post here, or just check out the photo below.


Whether you are going to do one task a day through all rooms, or just want something to keep track of what seasonal cleaning tasks have already been completed, this is seasonal cleaning checklist is here to help.


Checklists have so many practical uses, I could probably spend the whole month making different checklists for different things, and still not have every possible use for them covered.  Truth be told, as much as I love checklist, I think even I would be sick of them long before the month was through.  But I really wanted to be able to offer up something that you could make work for you, in whatever capacity you need it to, so I made up some blank ones for you.


Whatever You Want Checklists


Technically speaking, this first checklist is not strictly a Whatever You Want Checklist, however you could use it for more than it was specifically made for.  Earlier this week I received a comment that stated the following:


I have been searching high and low for a printable a for girl scout brownie leader. I really want to have a printable that will help me keep track of the badges my girls earn.


And yesterday, as I working on the seasonal cleaning checklist, I kept coming back to that comment in my head.  A checklist would be a great way to keep track of who has earned which badge.  I could not resist making one up.  I love nothing more that being able to create something you need and that will be useful for you.  Then, the more I mulled it over, the more I realized that Girl Scouts aren’t the only ones who earn badge.  There are a ton of other kid programs that use a similar system, so I opted to make more of a generic one (I hope that’s ok) so that it can be used by more than one group.


This Badge Tracker Printable Checklist was designed at the request of one of my readers. Because I know there are many programs out there that use badges, I chose to leave the title basic so that you can use it for more than just scouts or brownies.



Shortly after I made that one, I decided, what the heck, I’ll make a completely blank one.  I know I’m not the only one who loves using checklists.  (Or maybe I am, and am just more weird than I thought?)  I kept it super simple, with just a box to jot down what the checklist is for.


Use this printable blank checklist for anything you can think of, print off more than one copy and use them all over the place.


Pretty basic I know!  I could have just stopped there and called it good.  I mean seriously, how many checklists can one person make?  (psst-the answer is ALOT) But I just could not leave it alone.  It needed something more; a little oomph, a dash of pizzazz… it needed chevrons.


Use this printable blank checklist for anything you can think of, print off more than one copy and use them all over the place.


I find it amazing how you can take one idea, roll with it, and end up with multiple different uses for it.  Back in the spring of 2013, when I made that first one for the spring cleaning post, I never would have dreamed that I would end up using the same format for a few different printables.  I love it when stuff like that happens!

Don’t forget, if you have a suggestion for changes you would like to see to old printables, or ever new printables you would like to see offered here, let me know in the comments, send me an email, or reach out on social media.  You never know, I might choose your idea next!

  1. Hi,
    I LOVE the printables on your site!! They are beyond awesome! The literally only one I could hope to see is a financial planning printable with a yearly plan to have, for example, one bill per page and be able to write in all the bill payer information at the top…the account info, APR if needed, etc., phone # of company, and have the space to write in the $ per month of how much the bill is each month to track for the year. I hope that all makes sense lol 🙂

      Hi Michelle, I’m thrilled to hear you like the printables and that you’re finding them helpful. I can certainly look into making something like that. I’m not sure when it will be ready, but I will add it to my list of printables to make.

    I LOVE your options for planning! I’m often on your website looking for helpful pages and I refer you often. I have a request. Would you please create a family medical form(s) that a mom can print out and keep. What I’m looking for is a way to keep our daughters and my husband and my medical histories especially allergies printed out all in one place. I can’t find anything like this in book form. Thank you for considering and for all your work!

      Hi Karen, thank you so much for your kind words. I will definitely add those to the list of pages to make. I have a whole new section for medical printables, on the Home and Life Companion Page. I’m happy to add to them when I’m able too.
