I wrote a really long reply and....

forgot to post it!!!!! :crazy:

So...I keep a small book which I write down all important numbers, dates, and directions. Also, notes about things that I want to research, do later, or whatever.... simple things such as "check when Nora's birthday is...should be soon!"

I keep certain things in the same place at ALL times. Keys are always on the third shelf of the cupboard.

I have an excel spreadsheet set up with meal possibilities. The family picks what they want for the week...I cut and paste the ingrediants into a shopping list which has a list of Weekly ingrediants that we always buy, such as grapes, bread, milk, et al. once I have cut and paste all the ingrediants of the meals planned for the week I cut out any duplicates and add a number for things such as beef (2). Makes shopping and list making (plus meal making for the week a breeze!)

We have a checklist for my son and he has to complete his morning routine, afternoon routine, and evening routine on his own, and then show us the list to make sure things were done. This way I don't have to remember to prompt him to do his daily activities (making bed, brushing teeth, cleaning room, et al.) He also has "Check backpack to see that lunch was packed", which is a great check up with MY forgetfullness!

This system works nicely for us.

I keep a pen & pad by me during the day, if i need any shopping or anything the following day i have to write it down otherwise i forget.

I just have to remember to look at the pad each day.

I have an old pad that i write my must dos on every day.
The problem is i forget to tear the page out and take it with me.
I keep forgetting to get money for my phone, so i left myself a message on the phone for 12 today when i was at craft class.
So did i get my message and then the money top up - NO i forgot my phone!!!!

I usually put things 'safe'. I'm not sure where that is, but alot of things end up there!!!

Hubby says - "have you seen the radiator key as I need to bleed the radiators". "Oh I think I out them away - safe" - to which he then rolls his eyes upwards and goes into the garage for his molegrips! Ho hum! :lol:

Oh yes! I love putting things in the "safe" and "obvious" place too!

One day I decided that I would put items I use daily in this bowl on the dining room table:

I lost my Sat nav for a week while it lived in that bowl! :roll:
