    I think the trick that works best is to get the whole family to write their "stuff" on the calendar too!

    I make loads of lists, and similarly- I email myself with things that I need to do for the next day and keep them as unread messages. This way, when I check my email- my to do list is right there and all pertinent info is with it. This board would work a s a good solution for my honey though- as his idea of organizing is writing info on his arm- yes, really.

  3. Every Sunday night I put all bills due that week on our family bulletin board to ensure they get paid on time and we don't get stuck with late fees!

    I use my bathroom mirror as my to do list. A dry erase marker works just as well there as on the board and I can write it down after time spent contemplating what needs to be done while preparing for my day! My kids think it's great, like writing on the wall with permission. :)

    Since I only have to keep track of myself I don't find it too difficult. But I would say to families with children you should always keep a calendar for appointments, activities, etc. Reason being: I missed my son's Kindergarden Information Meeting and felt so bad about it, however, his teacher reassured me that it wasn't a problem. He didn't even know what happened.

    Calendars are the key, I print my work calendar several times a month with new activities on it, then give a copy to my husband to put where he works, on the fridge, and then I carry one. If it isn't on the calendar, then most likely, it will get overlooked!

    I have a BILLS BINDER… it is literally a three ring binder that I carry on the day that I must pay bills (like today) I have a pocket folder in it that carries my check book, and post it notes, I have loose leaf paper in it to write out all of my expenses and what bank account they are coming out of, etc… I also have a subject organizer inside the binder with pockets for each bill. As I get the bills I place them in the appropriate pocket and on pay day everything is right there, no need to go running around the hosue looking for my check book I just grab my binder and go!! No more late fees for me :)
