There's not an app for that?

I want to plan out my work week-by-week, with each week having a straightforward to-do list of tasks structured by which project they relate to. I do not want to be forced to tie this to-do list to any particular day of the week. What app do I want?

I'm looking for a Retina-friendly Mountain Lion app that will work for this purpose. Doesn't need to be free, but ideally under $20 or so. I've looked at a bunch of productivity apps but I can't seem to figure out which one, if any, will do what I want. Search results for things like "weekly planner" seem to assume I want to plan my week day-by-day, when what I really want is to plan several months week-by-week. Few of the possibly-relevant apps are free, and I don't want to purchase one only to find out it's not useful to me. Any suggestions?

TeuxDeux lets you set up tasks that automatically just shift to the next day. Plus, it's pretty. And free.

In Outlook, I would simply be creating tasks with a start date of Monday and due date of Friday. I think you could do the same thing with ToodleDo, at least, and probably many other apps.

If that won't work, can you outline what the problems would be/how you'd like it to work?

Maybe use Wunderlist and create a sublist for each week? It's not explicitly for weeks, but you can assign a date if there is something where it matters. (For example, I just have a grab bag of things usually, but Monday I need to go pick up a permit, so that one has a date.) You can also drag things from list to list, in case you need to rearrange. (Dunno if the app is retina-ized. I use the website + the iphone app.)

I use Workflowy for exactly this.
