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.

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

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

Dry erase board in the kitchen.

Google calendar.

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

I just try to be more organized so that I know where everything should be.

I write stuff in code here on the FDP. Then I go back and read it throughout the day.

I'll admit it, I put my to do list on my cell phone. Easy to move missed tasks to another day when I don't complete them.

I actually write my PIN codes on the back of my debit cards.

I once worked for a retail company that had a cost code that was just a bunch of random letters. This cost code is and has been out of use for nearly 35 years, but I have never lost it ... it's forever etched in my mind.

Comes in handy when I have *secret* numbers I need to keep track of and readily at hand.

Obviously, once a PIN has been in use for a while I memorize it, but when it's new or on a card I seldom use it's a hand deal.

I use an iPhone app called badger to send me text message reminders. Love it. Very useful.

I wear cargo shorts. I know the everyday things I need and which pockets they go in.

For non daily things I send myself and email with a subject line of something like Dec3.

I found that familiar places to put things means you dont have to remember where you put things. I have a drawer for all the keys, fobs and such. Dresser top is for wallet and watch

and white boards.... a 6ft wall mounted one in the office and one on the fridge to remind when to restock food/beer

I use an android app called color note. Great for check lists (like for shopping) or text for longer notes.

I have been know to email myself notes to read on the smartphone and I have been lately using google calendar since it always seems to know where I am and where and when I should be somewhere

but I still go upstairs and forget why....
at least I am getting exercise ;)

Google calendar on my phone has changed my life - I never miss appts. anymore. I put some mundane stuff on it too.

Also I use a geriatric plastic pill container...not only tells me that I need to take today's Rx, but also reminds me if I already did but cannot remember if I did (if no pills left for today, I took 'em already).

Wait, what was this thread about...?

I have a swim suit calender sitting right above my PC monitor. So obviously, I'm checking it out once every 18 minutes or so. I use BRIGHT markers to mark important events, LARGE TYPE (use abbreviations), color coded: RED-medical, BLACK-TODO, BLUE-music.

I then use Calender APP on cellphone as backup- first notification the day before; second, an hour before.

Appointments and gig I use my cell calendar to remember.

For the day to day things I need to take with me when I leave the house I have a small table by the front door. My keys hang above it.

And of course the phrase, "Briefcase, wallet, spectacles, testicles.

Heck, I don't know what I'm going to be doing an hour from now. I play it by ear now that I'm retired.

My wife tells me where to go constantly so that's covered and if I put something in a certain place to remember something she will pick it up and hide it in a drawer or something and it's never seen again. So that's covered. If I want to know what day it is I just look at my pill container. Since I retired I can't find anything and never know where I'm going from one minute to the next anyway.

Between that and "reminders" on my smartphone for more important stuff, I'm usually still missing things I was supposed to remember.
