Instead of having a lot of little pieces of paper with important notes lying around on my desk, I send an email to myself with the important information. Then I create personal folders in my email so I can file each email in its appropriate folder. This helps me to stay organized.

That's great until it crashes. I tape cards to a paper calender and add them to my cell phone as well. If three methods fail, it wasn't meant to be!
It was so funny to see this tip. I email myself all the time! I send information to my Gmail account so I can access it from anywhere, and at the bottom of the note I type in key words that I may use in a search when looking for that information. Even the tipster's signature could be mine - I have a Rachel also! :)

When I make an appointment I go to my Yahoo datebook and set it up to send myself at least two email reminders of the upcoming event.
I am a big fan of Google Calendar (you need a gmail account for it). It lets you choose when to receive a reminder (1 day, 1 hour...), and how (sms on your phone or e-mail). You can also have a daily agenda sent to you every morning at 5am. A life saver for a featherbrain like myself :-) (01/05/2009)
