Very true. I'll write out a list before going to the store so I won't forget stuff and then I forget the list.lol

Yes, this is true.   And did you know, that if you do write something down, even if you forget to bring the note, the chances are much higher of remembering just because you HAD written it down?   We went to a seminar when my daughter was in school, taught by a fellow who teaches students how to get better grades by changing habits, or following new ones.  This is one reason why flash cards work well as a learning and memory tool, because the students have to consciously pay attention that they are correctly writing down the information.

That is so true.  I went to the store this morning and I know I wanted something but I still can't remember what it was.

 Sometimes I forget even if I have it on my list. I'll get side-tracked on my way to the last item, put something entirely different in the buggy put my list away because I think I'm done, and then when I get home, it's oh shit!!!! I really have to start double checking it BEFORE I leave the store!

 I hate it when I do that, it's at least one more trip back.
