Never miss an important date again. At the beginning of each year when the new calendars come out, I get two; one for my husband and one for myself. We each copy birthdays and other important recurring dates to our calendars.
My husband puts when our vehicle and house insurance is due, along with any other upcoming bills on the month ahead of its due date on his. That way we are always aware of what is due and when.
For mine, I copy important things that happened from the year before as a reminder. On the birthdays and anniversaries, I put the birthdate, etc. If you can find calendars with the pockets in it, try this. Purchase a card for each occasion you have for that month and address it. Put the date it is to be sent where the stamp goes and you are ready to send them in a moment. No more belated birthday cards!

Excellent idea! I used to do something similar in my sighted days. Now I rely on my MS Outlook Calendar and a free reminder site called Set Birthday Alarms. They permit you to add 10 reminders at a time, so I note new important dates in batches and add as I get time.
I make my own birthday, anniversary, Christmas, Hanukah, Easter, Passover or whatever cards and I do them in advance. I have an accordion file that has the twelve months on the tabs. When I make a card for a certain person for a certain date I put it in the month in which it is needed. If I have two or three people that do not know each other I make the same card only put different names on them. Works wonders for me. I love making my own cards and people love receiving them. I also sew many items to be given away during the year and I place a note in my accordion file to let me know what I made and where it is. Attached is the inside of my Christmas Card I made this year.
