  • I write EVERYTHING down even if I know i"m going to remember. There are have been plenty of times I figured I'd remember something and looked at the calender like "OH!! I'm GLAD I wrote that down!!".

  • I keep everything written on a calendar. With 3 work schedules, appts for 7 people, events like reunions or picnics or whatever, I can't keep track of all that in my head.

  • Don't know how I do it, but I remember everything. I've tried using a calender/planner, but I can't keep up with it.

  • Definitely have a calendar! And, I keep that calendar when I get a new one each year. It's sorta like a diary to go back through old calendars, see what was going on, when you went to the doctor and for what, etc.

  • OMG, I have a huge desk calendar and hang it on my wall next to the computer.....with two teenage boys and a hubby who is into pool and sports, I have to write everything down , and each person has his own color of highlighter, so at a glance I know who has something that day. And when I put it on the calendar, I list things in order of the time of day, morning things go towards the top of the block, afternoon things in the middle and so days off the blocks are colored in solid so we know at a glance when the days off are in any given month.
    In the kitchen, I have a 4 month, claendar, the kind you can use over head markers on, ans we have a 4 month view all the time. Works great
