Don't forget to....

I have this issue with lists and notes. I make them for everything and write them on anything. There's to-do lists, grocery lists, reminders, to-pack, to-call, or orders placed/pricing/contact numbers if I'm at work. They might be on blank paper, lined paper, scraps of paper, work notepads, backs of receipts, paystubs...basically whatever I can find nearby. These lists are the culmination of years and years of forgetting things.

The problem isn't the lists, though. The problem is one or both of the following:

1. I never dispose of the lists. They end up in either my car or the pockets of my pants, which in turn makes my laundry room look like this within a week.


2. I forget the list altogether. Leave it at home/work, in the car or go to the store but don't take it out of my pocket. I like to think of the that last one as a challenge to remember what I needed without consulting the list, but really I just forgot I had it. Leaving it at work is the worst, though, because when I come back in the morning it's sitting on my desk, staring at me as if to say 'you didn't do any of this did you?' Or, if it's a grocery list, 'you don't have any lunch today!!! HAHAHA!!!'

I'm not sure how to combat this issue, but I'm hoping that this will solve it once and for all.
