The older I get I find I forget things more, so making lists and having those handy dandy sticky notes plastered everywhere helps.
I can't live without my calendar that I have hung in the kitchen. This year's model is the Coronation Street version, however I am not fussed what it looks like, what is more important is having the squares where I can write notes on the certain days. I put all the birthday and anniversaries on there so I know when they all are.
With us moving, I have a notebook where we write down anything to do with the move, plus we have a binder where we put everything to do with the move. That way if in doubt look in the book. I saw on one of the British moving shows, I think it was "Moving To The Country," one of the people had numbered all her moving boxes and did an Excel spreadsheet that told her what was in each box. I wish I could be that organized. I have written on the outside of each box what is in it and what room each box has to go into. I have bought bright coloured post-it notes to stick on the outside of each box so easily identify which box goes into each room.
I like to write a list when I go grocery shopping, as although I generally know what I want when I get there I always forget and and up buying things I don't need, or forgetting things I wanted!!!
I keep a small note pad and pens in my handbag as well, so I can write notes when I am out.
Writing lists not only saves time, it also saves money. Do you write lists and if so what for?
