Archiving lists to put projects on hold, and remembering to take them off the back burner

jcfisher Pro says:

I use something like the advanced GTD setup with Remember The Milk. Sometimes, though, I have projects that are less important, and I want to put those on the back burner. To put the project on hold, I just archive the list that contains the project, and then I don't see the project or its tasks any more.

But once I put a project on hold, I know I want to resume it at some future point, so that eventually I'll come back to it. To make sure I remember to come back to my "on hold" projects, I made a list called "On Hold." In it, I create a task with the name of the list that I archived, and set the due date to the day I want to come back to that project. Then, when that task comes due, I unarchive the list, and (hopefully!) start working on the project again.
