I have two notebooks, one I keep for Mount Mocha, and one for all the others.  I filled up the first, so had to get out a new one for Mount Mocha.

I am semi-retired, and my memory is terrible any more.  So, I write everything down, whether white, red or green, how much it makes, what it needs, who gives it, who gets it, whatever.  You name it, it is written down.  That way, I remember from one minute to the next what I have made for someone and what I got for them, etc.

No, you are not a nurd.  I couldn't keep track of everything if I didn't write it down.

Good luck.

Um.... I have a spreadsheet that has every customer, where they are located, what they pay for each drink, if it's red, white or green, if the quality blend helps them, what they give, if they have an award, how many drinks I have made to that award.

iIt also has every drink, how many brewing skills it takes, if its gray, green, yellow, orange or red, if there is an award for it, how many drinks i am to the award.

How many brewing, marketing and hostesing skills I have in general and how many I have in each area due to my equipment.

and finally all the equipment from each town, how much it costs, how much exrta brewing, marketing, or hostesting skills you get for it, and if I have it.

I think this qualifies me as a super geek!  LOL.

I have all the customers split in areas written down and what they like in green. I have a sheet of paper with my experiments that were white drinks, I also write down if they give you an item or a recipe. Then I also have all the awards written down and once a day I update how close I am to getting that award :) Yay for being organized!

Me too! 

I have copy & pasted any info I have gathered about each person, land, ect. into Word docs.  I think I have like 8 diff ones- one for each land (equipment/recipes & supplies avail. & cost, people/drinks/extras, awards I am working on (update each time I play), recipes avail & skill they are, plus what ingredients they are so I have idea of how much each costs to serve. I just open the ones in the areas I need while I play to refer to if needed.

Geek-dom here I come!! :)

The bean I used and which recipe - whether it was green, red, or white

and under it I have what I received.

 

Glad to know I am not the only one....my hubby just laughed at me when he asked what I was doing.  LOLdrinking

Heck No... With as many recipes and customers and mommy memories or old age memories alike, I think it takes at least some notes. I write notes of certain things as I go, until I figure out what it is that is needed to perfect it. Then the notes are set aside for later, but haven't needed to go back to old ones yet. I started out with pieces of paper in a small stack until I found a notebook in the office. That worked good too until I started to copy and paste into a word document. :-D
