Do you make lists? I never used to, but over the past few years I've been finding it easier to amke a list of things to do/get/that need attention, etc. I'm not sure whether it's age, or an increase in the amount of things I need to remember. I suspect it's the latter, but it's probably a combination of both.........
I now make shopping lists every week, and have now even got into the habit of remembering to take them with me! I found a nice blackboard at the tip a couple of years ago, and got into the routine of writing what I needed for the kitchen as I go - it's been immeasurably useful, and the others can write on it too if they finish something/decide they want something different, etc (not that I actually *buy* everything they write down, but that's another story lol). I now do lists for everything - Guild days so I don't forget anything vital; fundraising things, where I need to take eg tea towels and raffle tickets, odd things I have to do on specific days, lists of things I want to look up on the computer, that sort of thing. This last one is now translated into a book, though, as I look so many things up, but it's a useful record of all sorts of things. I really need to get to my Christmas lists this weekend - I meant to do them last week, but didn't get around to it - list for family presents, other presents, card lists, food lists, things to do lists, etc.
I must admit it does make for an easier life for me, but I must remember where I put them, which is half the battle really.
Are you a list person?
