I made what I refer to as "phone number cheat sheets." I happened to have several white cards that were in clear plastic envelopes, but any cardboard would work. White is best, I think. You can even try using plastic wrap to protect the cardboard if you like. I might try the plastic bag used to mail magazines to your home as the protection for your cardboard. I've also used the front or inside covers of my telephone book for this purpose.

I write down the name and phone numbers of my pharmacy, doctors, snow plow driver, plumber, etc. on the cardboard with a fine-pointed, black Sharpie marker and slip it back inside the plastic envelope. This has helped me in many, many situations where I have been upset or not able to remember the name of the doctor or person I wanted to telephone. I also can keep track of cell phone numbers this way! For me, it has made a great quick reference. I keep adding and deleting names until I need to replace the cardboard.


Good luck!
