In the same way as in English, but translating every task. Verbs usually go in infinitive. For example:

  1. Ir al almacén.
  2. Cenar.
  3. Comprar leche.
  4. Llamar al veterinario.

If it's a shopping list then we just put the items without any verb because the verb "comprar" (buy) is understood by the context. And you can add the amount if you want. E.g.

  1. (12 l. de) leche.
  2. (4) yogures.
  3. (5 Kg. de) naranjas
