Notebooks to Write Down Information

Today I was thinking about how convenient it is, to have paper notebooks to jot things down. My memory isn't working the best, any more. This makes it simple to just write things down on a sheet of paper, so I won't forget. At times, a subject comes to mind, for a great discussion on My Lot. If I don't immediately ledger this idea somewhere, it will soon become history, out in the sea of forgetfulness! Writing things down, also uses my fingers to practice handwriting, which is almost a long lost art. Tapping on a computer keyboard has become the norm, for many of us. Photo: borrowed from Pixabay

I make lists of all sorts of things. The latest is a list of last minute things that we must pack in the car or the caravan before we take off. Before today we've gone without our toilet bags because we needed them at the last minute then forgot to pack them. I have a Word file where I write my discussions and if I think of something for a post I make a note at the bottom of the page. I've just looked and the file is named 'MyLot10' as it's the tenth file and it's up to 80 pages. Must be time to start MyLot11.

Those spiral notebooks are very cheap, we got these 2 for $1. I keep a stack in the office, to log everything I need to remember. On grocery shopping day, tear that list out and take it with you to the store! The next week, start a new list in your notebook and on shopping day, tear it out and do the exact same thing. When the notebook is all used up, buy some new ones!

@kobesbuddy I am going to use looseleaf paper and label folders for them. I don't use spiral notebooks as the page get messed up so much, so i use looseleaf papers that stay neater when put in the appropriate folder. I like your idea of keeping a grocery list as I always make a list the day before or the morning i am going shopping. I am going to take your advice!
Lists on post its, index cards or just plain paper are such a useful tool to a forgetful memory. Make sure you also have plenty of pens handy. I always forget where I place them along with my reading glasses BTW: Short memories work very well for politicians, lol.
