Sometimes the simplest habits can yield the greatest results. Making to-do lists is the perfect example of a productive habit -- especially if you're getting ready to sell your home.

When putting your house on the market, here are a few tips to keep in mind for staying on track and avoiding delays.

Organization: As a home seller, there are a lot of things you can do to prepare your house for real estate showings.

Making lists can be an extremely effective way to reinforce goals, clarify objectives, and remind yourself what needs to be done. Knowing your priorities for the day (and week) can strengthen your confidence and help you avoid that feeling of being overwhelmed. On the other hand, when you lack clarity and keep forgetting important tasks, frustration and pessimism can creep in, causing you to lose your edge.

Like any method of staying organized and focused, making lists is not without its potential pitfalls. Priority lists are of little use if they get misplaced, buried under other documents, or forgotten about for days or weeks. Ideally, your list of important tasks should be readily accessible, highly visible, and regularly updated. While some people like to use old-fashioned written lists in a spiral-bound notebook or legal-size pad of paper, others may prefer their mobile devices, computer, or a reminder app.

The benefit of creating a list and checking off items as you progress is that it helps keep you focused, goal oriented, and organized. The sooner you create a priority list of tasks, the greater your efficiency will be in getting them done.

Motivation: Although your real estate agent will handle most of the details related to selling your home, there are still dozens of tasks you'll need to be involved in. Keeping your home and property well maintained, presentable, and in a state of good repair are among them. If you're like most home sellers, however, your plate is already full with family responsibilities, career demands, and other obligations. Fortunately, there are strategies for balancing your priorities.

The three keys to getting important stuff done in a timely way are: effective time management, prioritization, and staying motivated. Selling a house is a team effort involving you, your family, your real estate agent, and other professionals. Doing your utmost to keep your real estate objectives on the "front burner" will help keep the sales process moving forward and make a good impression on potential buyers.

Goals, in general, should be specific, attainable, measurable, and deadline-oriented. As motivational writer Napoleon Hill said, "A goal is a dream with a deadline." When you fail to assign a target date or deadline to a house-selling task, it's all-too-easy to let that goal slide and cause you to lose your advantage.

Moving into your first home can mean steeper electric bill than you are used to. All those small differences can feel like they have added up quickly. Or perhaps itís not your first home but you want to start this one off on the right, economical foot.

Hereís your guide to using electricity wisely and start saving on your bill each month.

Cut back on hot water use.

Heating water is expensive. Cut back on how much you spend by taking shorter showers or cooler ones if you like a particularly hot shower. Purchase laundry detergent designed to clean well in cooler temperature water and start running your loads on the cold or warm cycle instead of hot.

Unplug unused electronics.

You might think that when a device is turned off it is no longer using power but if it is still plugged into the wall it is still taking it in. Instead of just switching off corded devices unplug them after use too. Alternatively, plug systems into a power strip to make it easier to manage and not have to unplug five different devices each time you power down. You can also invest in new technology that allows you to create smart outlets. Youíll be able to turn off devices from the other room or even while out of the house. You will also be able to hone in on which electronics are using the most energy and create a plan of action to course correct the problem.

Manage your homeís temperature.

If you have electric heat lowering the temperature by even just a couple of degrees can make a big difference in the long run. Make it even easier to manage and monitor by installing a smart thermostat like Nest. Youíll be able to set up schedules and reminders as well as see actual data to your energy usage.

Itís also wise to invest in smart blinds which can be scheduled to open and close at certain times of the day. Namely, you want them to be closed to keep the afternoon sun out in summers and let in during the winters.

Ditch big energy hogs.

Unplug your second fridge and/or freezer. At the very least do a cost analysis to determine the extra space truly saves you in the long run in comparison to the expense on your electric bill. Hang dry your laundry to really save on energy usage. Install a line outside for fresh, sun-warmed laundry and pick up a rack for those cold and rainy months.

There are a lot of different ways to save on energy each month. Some add up to just a few dollars of savings over the year while others make an impact you can see month to month.
