Managing time at Home

I often have a very long "to do list", I do lists of to do lists that I need to write, and daily, and weekly, and even monthly project to do lists!
I will even narrow it all down to several different categories, online work, bills, mail, phone calls, errands, paperwork, housework, projects, ( This normally includes uncluttering projects, lol).
The online work to do list, is getting to be the longest, and takes up one whole side of the notebook paper. This includes, blogs, surveys, points sites, answering emails, facebook, twitter, paying bills, reviews, personal facebook, Old Navy and Amazon orders, Groupon orders, research, and lots more that I can't seem to think of off the top of my head. I wish so much that I had a laptop, or Notebook, or anything that would help me tackle this list and complete the entire thing! I believe this would enable me to spend a lot less time in 'the computer room" and I will definately feel more at ease, getting this all worked on and finished each day.
So I think I have to make a game plan! I have to somehow put some money aside each week, until I have enough to cover a pretty good, but very reasonably priced, lap top. I am very interested in any comments, suggestions, reviews, thoughts, anything about your experience with any laptops, so I know what price range and time frame I am looking at.
The rest of my 'to do lists" are just a matter of trying to find a babysitter for a few hours a week, so that I can get some housework and house projects done. With Aaron in 2nd grade, and Genevive in preschool 3 days per week, I think I figured out the errands for the time being. (At least the local errands)
Genevive only attends preschool 3 days a week, and for 2 and a half hours at a time, so between that time, Deegan and I can run to Boyers Markets, Walmart, CVS, the post office, the bank, the farmers market, and maybe Weis. These are all within 25 miles, and I can get 1 or sometimes a few done in a day. I am very greatful for the way the smaller children behave in the stores. Deegan is 1, so he should be ok for the rest of the school year. After that, I will have to revise my errand list.
I am looking for any cute printables, or to do list tablets, notebooks, that are handmade, or that someone sells!
Please leave any links for any of these types of products, I would love to have cute papers with plenty of room, that i can check off on the side as the day goes and I can be happy to watch the lines get crossed off or the little boxes checked!!
