8. Bring order to chaos
9. Helps to remember things
10. Crossing out feels SOOO good

One of my favorite things about using lists on layouts is that it preserves a moment in time. A moment that, without the list, might have been forgotten. I would love to challenge you to create a new layout using a list as journaling.
How about another list to help you brainstorm a new layout?
