At the beginning of each month I select a piece of paper for each day of the month. On it I write all the stuff I have to do each day, appointments, meetings, etc. Then when each day's "have-to's" are on the page I go through the month and figure out when can I do the other things I want to accomplish in the month, finish this sewing project on these days, clean the garage on this day and so on. I also add to the day any pieces of paper I may need on that day, dry cleaning receipts, etc. This list can then go in my purse and I'm ready for the day. Then at the end of the day, anything that didn't get done will go on the next appropriate day. Didn't pick up the ham for the BBQ on Monday, then it goes on Tuesday's list. I find this method really saves me a lot of hassle. I know when I have to do what to get done what I want/need to get done at the right time. I did this while I was working and do it even more now I'm retired.
