I found this list on Karin’s Tiny Treasures (she’s not the author, but I figured I’d give her credit) and I thought I should check this out too.  I am sure that there are some very basic things I should have done but haven’t, but we’ll see how it goes.  *smile*

Bold for things I’ve done, normal for things I haven’t, and italics for the stuff I need explained!
