How To Keep From Missing Appointments and Deadlines
I got a bit of a shock at the library earlier. I owed $6 in fines. Somehow the loan period came and went quickly before I even thought to check the due date. Oops! I’d like to say I learned a lesson and won’t make that mistake again, but I’m not really sure.
In hindsight, I could have marked the due date in my phone calendar. Or I could have hung a reminder on the mirror. But I didn’t.
With life moving at breakneck speed, I am curious about the best way to keep track of everything. Do you have a system? Is there an online tool that you use so all your family members can keep track of appointments and due dates? Is there a calendar app that you like?
Truth is I’m not upset about the fine. A "donation" to the Ocean County Library is a donation to a good cause.
But the penalty was preventable...if only I had made a note of the date somewhere. Any suggestions to keep more organized and on top of things?
