I have already submitted a hint about putting all your family's medical information into a new date book at this time of year. They are free at many stores. I put in say, bone density test on Oct. 2006, pneumonia shot on Feb. 18th, 2002. All your records can be kept together on the anniversary date and you can have a date book for each member.
Now in December, I put down the Christmas decorations that I need or wish for, after I have seen exactly what I need. It makes it super easy to pick up just what I need. Also in next year's date book, for the months of October/November I have a list of what I am looking for, instead of just trying to remember. Like bows, bags, boxes, or strings of lights. I get enormous compliments on my Christmas cards, which I buy right after Christmas, and I write that down so I do not make a mistake and purchase more then I need.
One last thing is I always keep a separate date book as my check/debit register. It is so much easier to write down "CVS $30.00 On Dec. 13th" when I have my pocketbook open. It makes it so much easier to see how much and where the money is going. For instance if you always have a certain amount every Friday, you can look on those dates and see that you are making withdrawals to go out with "the girls". Thank you
