Hello Kindle... I too understand the need for organization and lists are a helpful adjunct to that end. Since you're afloat now by the looks of your lists, this is how I have/had/and do keep myself on track:
We use 3x5 index cards exclusively. In no particular order, I'd organize the lists thus:
#1) charts/books to purchase
including shop manuals
for anything you might have to fix/have fixed and start buying
If I may be so bold? Put stuff away -- seriously, right now, put everything away. I'm not trying to be snippy however you will find (at least I did!) many things that should be some place else, and none of that will be apparent without stowing the gear/supplies now. You'll probably discover that what seemed ideal for one thing isn't and something else needs to be in that spot. This WILL save you money
in the long run. When a worker comes to a boat to do work if you're a disorganized chaotic mess ... well, time is money
and it's your dollar. (shrugs)
#2) spare parts
wanted/ (engine belts, impellers, liquid electrical
tape, fittings, teflon tape, rescue
tape, et al)
This card will have your engine
numbers, fan belt sizes, fuel
filters, et al (you might also note prices so you'll know when you've spotted a bargain)
#3) tools as you discover the necessity or after you've given that racheting wrench a swimming lesson... if you've lost
the 7/16 socket, or discover you need a deep well 1/2 -- one card for tools/hardware
#4) Grocery Goods -- this would include little things (birthday candles for instance aren't always readily available) along with every spice you use (don't forget the holiday spices) ...
Along with your ship's stores you'll want to be shopping
for containers to put the food
in -- so start buying
those containers now and finding a home for them.
#5) Homestuffs: includes sun shades for the windows (make them yourself) along with screens, -- comfort items. And once you're living aboard
this list will expand. You'll be sitting down and think "gosh, it'd sure be nice to have a fan right there where I can turn it on without getting up" -- for now, just get aboard living and the list will make itself.
#6) The final card with wishes/things to keep an eye out for, e.g. my card currently has things such as an '8" pan stove
wind-break' that means if I'm in a thrift store I'll look for a spring-form pan (the type you'd use to make a pineapple upside down cake) ... currently I'm using a piece of tin foil to encircle the burner when cooking
but I'd like to up-grade. This card has all the things I'd like (but not enough to pay retail for) -- it's a reminder list for consideration, not a ToDo however I've found it very useful in keeping myself on-track.
And finally, I have one piece of paper with dimensions for everything. Okay, that would be the portlights
and windows (all of them), the distance between the dinette seats, height of dinette, distance between steps to forward cabin
and bunk, width of stove
, opening for reefer, depth
of dinette seats and width... basically, anything I might wonder about, it's there. I don't refer to it as often any more but while designing my head/holding tank it was helpful to know the distance to the deck
fitting, hose lengths, etc. Anyway, it was one sheet and any time I measured anything a note was added to the paper. I still have it in my purse.
Good luck, and try 3x5's -- you might find them helpful in focusing Kindle, at least this system works for me.
