Write it down!

Do you rely on your memory for important dates?  Or do you write it on the calendar?  I tend to keep them in my head because I never remember to check the calendar.

 I used to keep them in my head.  Once Court started band and Cam's martial arts shows picked up, I had to devise a calendar system.  I still sometimes forget to look at the calendar, but at least the dates aren't all jumbled in my head.

I write it on the calendar hanging on the wall next to our desk, and on the white board on the wall in the kitchen, that can be seen from the dining room. Plus if it's written on a flyer or something I either stick it on the fridge, or cork board connect to the bulletin board. I have a horrible memory.

I have to write it on two calendars.  If I write things only on the calendar in here and not the one in the kitchen, or vice versa, then I often forget anyway.

I do, too. The worst is that when I put things away, I forget where I put them. At the time it seems very logical, but I still forget.

Everything goes on 1 calendar. Bills to pay, bookings and appts. and business trips. Then I color code the schedule.

I keep it all on a calendar in the dining room where SO sits when he pays bill so he can see it mainly. His memory is worse than mine when it comes to appts, etc. LOL. I also put everything in my calendar on my blackberry so I have it when I'm out running around.
