I put my car keys on my cell phone while it's charging.
I also put my afternoon epilepsy pill in the same place.

I make lists but I'm prone to forget them. Sometime I'll add the chore to "notes" or my calendar in my phone. What I need to do is get myself one of those small tote bags for my phone, wallet, etc. but I'm too cheap to buy one.

I've used memory tricks for decades, starting back in the 1980's, when I would simply turn my wristwatch from the top of the wrist, to the bottom. I had less important things to remember back then.

Nowadays I sometimes set myself an obstacle course of oddly placed items:

Leave one window or door ajar so that the alarm won't set as I prepare to leave the house.

TV tray left out of place in the middle of the room.

Empty laundry basket in front of the door that connects to the garage (Oh ... right ... clothes in the dryer).

In my ancient cars, you have to remember to turn off the headlights when you park. So when I turn them on while driving, I stick a Post-It on the speedometer (in a 50 year old bug you learn to estimate speed by noise and vibration).
When I get where I'm going the fluorescent Post-It glares at me as I remove the ignition key.
I've thought about getting a T shirt that says, "Ask me about my headlights", but would I remember to wear it?

I tend to put stuff on the floor so I'll trip over it.

Borrow one from your wife/mom/sister/etc., they have plenty of purses.

Cannot tell you how many times lately I've left the apartment without my wallet. It's a sign the guardianship is not that far off....

I have pants and shirt pockets when things in their place. Wallet, keys, etc.

I also put to do lists and shopping lists on my Notes app on my phone.

"I tend to put stuff on the floor so I'll trip over it."

Yes indeed, or so close to my future path that I could never miss it.

While out on the job I tend to always put things away as soon a I know I won't need it again, occasionally if that can't or isn't going to happen I'll put things right at the front door of the house so I'll pretty much trip over it as I exit.

After showing up at a job or two minus a critical tool years ago I learned just how silly that is.

For other important things I need to make certain I do, I will write it on my calendar or tape a note to my calendar. The calendar is on the *dog house* console of the van and it's right in front of me any time I'm in the van. That calendar is my guide through daily life.

I use a combo of calendar, trip over, and post-it methods.

Last years working, I had several classified info safes across the hall. I kept my keys in one so I wouldn't leave without closing them out. You only have to wake up one time realizing you left them open.

"You only have to wake up one time realizing you left them open."

Where I worked, I had a safe which often contained up $100K for which I was accountable. I dreaded doing exactly what you're talking about. It's especially bad when opening/closing them is a daily routine: you wake up in the middle of the night wondering, "was that YESTERDAY I closed it, or the day BEFORE? CRAP!!!"

All of the above, more or less. I rely increasingly on an electronic calendar, synched across my laptop, wife`s laptop, my tablet and phone, with reminders set a couple of days before important events. At the less techno end of the spectrum, like Roly I leave my car keys with anything I must remember to take out of the house when I leave. And I still like a handwritten "to do" list.

Exactly. or a reminder note that I place somewhere that I know will be in my way later.

Dry erase board in the kitchen.

Put it in a plastic bag and hang on the door knob.
