Do you make check-lists to keep track of things you need to get done?

I make them but almost always lose them before I get any done.

This is a question which one choice should be "sometimes".

No, but I should. I usually make a mental note.

I make check-lists, only if the number of things I need to do, exceeds my capacity to remember. (Usually around two 'things'!) I usually use digital "Post-it" notes.

For certain things. I make a grocery list because I forget half of what I need if I don't. I also make lists before trips or holidays but for every day stuff, not usually.

Been there. Done it too. Even more sick, I've typed it into an iPhone app To-Do list, just so I could delete it. Not even any record that it happened. Oh, the shame.

Oh it's sick - if it wasn't on my list and I did it, I must write it down so I can cross it off.

I don't find my iPhone simple to use for organizing. It sounds like you do.

I really didn't mean to write $6. It's not. My 2.5 year old grabbed my phone.

FIAT, I don't know much about Google Glasses yet - just haven't taken the time to learn - but it sounds like the potential is huge. And yeah, it would be refreshing to have something entirely new. I'm sort of hoping for something to plug into a socket in my brain.

Post-it's are my best friend. when the task or reminder is done you crinkle it up and throw it out!

I am the queen of lists. I have a to do list on my phone, computer, iPad, wall, bathroom mirror, and one in my pocket that is currently 7 pages long, not long term either, all stuff that needs to be done by the end of the week. I would be lost without it. I should probably get off SOH actually...

Not dumb at all! In fact, the total opposite. I like to just cross out; it gives me a sense of accomplishment when I don't get everything done.

My notes app is stuffed. Like 2,000 notes. Probably only 60 of those are to-do lists. The standard Notes app is AWESOME!!!

This is why I think Google Glasses might give Apple a run for their money. There are so many things (such as in-yo-face notifications) Google Glass could do incredibly well. Much better than a handheld device in fact. [Yes I said "yo" instead of "you"]

I use my phone calendar and to do app for reminder. I use the Kroger app for grocery lists. I use that because I can also select electronic coupons they offer on it. The e-coupons are automatically put on the shopping list.
