    hi all,

    Buy a small board (White boards or black boards are available in the stationary shops ) and hang it in ur kitchen. As kitchen is the place we visit a number of times in a day . make a note of small things that u have to do the next day in the board so that u will not forget important things.
    I do it regularly and it works wonderful.

    For example:

    Booking gas

    Buying some things from the market.

    To order drinking water.

    To pay some bills

    Even ur menu for the next day.......

    Anything that way.....................

    prabha:yes:

    Dear Prabha,
    Nice tip :)
    But I keep a diary in my kitchen and note down all the things as and when they occur to me because I do not want any guests to see my "to-do" list :wink:

    hi,

    I have a small note pad using a magnet on my fridge for me and another one for my kids. my kids were the inspiration for putting notes on the fridge. they used to just put a "sorry" "love you" "make noodles tonight" sort of stick on notes on the fridge. so now there is a place for any drawing,circular,any notes to the family on the fridge. it is one place that does not go unnoticed by my husband/children.

    hi,

    U can always hang it in a place that is not noticed by others.
    U can rub them when ur guests come.


    Especially if u want to soak for something ex : for soaking dosa or chana
    u can make a note of it in the board or the note pad as shanthi has specified so that u will not forget.

    U can also write some good proverbs or sayings so that u see it right in the morning when u come into the kitchen and feel refreshed.

    prabha

    Hi Prabha,

    I will pin a bunch of papers and will keep in the kitchen or near the dinning

    table. I will also write then and there the things need to buy. The next time

    when we go out I will take the list and it will be easy and we will not forgot

    anything which we need. At time of function, like Avani avitam or Krishna

    Jayanthi, I will prepare the menu and write in the slip, before 1 week. So that

    you can check for the provision and youcan get them before the function, and

    we can prepare all the items with out any last time tension.

    True.

    I am practising this efficiency improvement trick for the past 5 years

    and this has helped remove a lot of stress from running

    a house on a tight schedule.
