When doing garden seed orders from catalogs, keep the catalog, cut out the section describing your seeds, and affix it to an index card or piece of paper. Then file them to verify information during the growing season.
I keep a 3 ring binder, affix the info to a sheet of paper, slip them into a clear page protector, and then put them into the book. I can keep several years in the same binder. Sometimes you go back for the info to see what you did a couple years ago.
I have a friend who logs in the temp each day, what she plants when, what day they bloomed for the first time, the first frost, etc. She is a Master Gardener and finds this so important when making changes in the garden.
