How to Remember Your List of Errands

Looking for tips on how to remember your list of errands? If you’ve ever forgotten to drop off some clothes at the dry cleaners or to pick the kids up from school on time, or inadvertently left the grocery coupons on the kitchen table, you’re sure to find an idea or two below you can use. Our friends at Homemakers Daily have obviously been there, done that.

How to Remember Your List of Errands

Have you tried some of these tips on how to remember your list of errands?

… here are some practical things you can do to help yourself remember:

  • Use timers. If you have a short time before you have to do something, use your kitchen timer. I use mine to help me remember to switch the laundry. I use it to remind me when I have to leave for an appointment. The closer it gets to time to leave, the more apt I am to forget. So I set the timer to remind me I need to leave.
  • Use the reminders/alarms on your cell phone.
  • Put post-it notes in strategic places. My daughter was over the other day and I wanted her to take home her doll cradle and her sewing machine. I forgot the week before so I wrote a post-it note and put it on the front door. When I worked full-time, we used to order lunch every week. Sometimes I ordered extra for my husband’s lunch the next day. But I almost always forgot to go to the kitchen and get it before I went home. So I started putting a post-it note on my keys. I never left work without my keys, so when I reached for them, the note was there reminding me to grab the food. Worked like a charm. I also put post-it notes on my steering wheel, my laptop, my debit card, my phone, my purse, the outside of my planner when it’s closed – you name it.

For the entire list of tips, go here.

This is  great list of ideas on how to remember your list of errands. When I’m at home, I use the timer on my oven. I’m also a lover of sticky notes and I put them everywhere — the front door, the kitchen cupboards, the bathroom mirror — even on the dashboard of my car.
