Listbean website helps users organize life’s little details

When you prepare to study for class, get ready for vacation or create a budget, what’s the first thing you do? If you answered, “make a list,” then I have a website for you!

It’s called Listbean, and it’s awesome!

Unlike other list sites, it is completely free and jam-packed with pre-populated lists. Personally, I like the fact that these lists are already put together. Of course, they aren’t me and don’t know exactly what I need, which is why they make each list fully customizeable.

The checklists are organized into various groups:

  • Home and Organizing
  • Business and Finance
  • Kids and Family
  • Retirement
  • Vacation and Travel
  • Parties and Celebrations
  • Health and Wellness
  • Seasonal

From the Listbean website:

“We want to help make you awesome. We know you are trying to get more done now than ever before. Listbean is our first crack at helping you be awesome at whatever it is you do. Be it parenting, organizing, photography or being an outdoor fanatic, we want to help you be awesome at it. A clean and sleek site that is easy to use and full of value. This is what we set out to create, and I’m sure you’ll agree, that’s just what we ended up with with Listbean.”

A few benefits of Listbean:

  • Want to create a checklist but don’t know where to start? We do. We’ve done the hard part of pulling the lists together. You can use the lists as is or use them as inspiration to create your own customized checklists.
  • You never have to retype checklists. Create an account and you can customize any of the lists you see on the site, save them and come back to them time and time again.
  • Be more efficient, effective and deliberate in everything you do. With checklists covering most things you need right at your fingertips, you can just get on with what needs to get done.

So go check it out and let me know your favorite. Mine? Timeless Toys, of course!
