Articles In the Household Section
Lastly, I have these articles that are related to this section of my website-
13 Meals - This article is about a way to plan meal ahead of time with the focus on the repeating meals. The title "13-Meals" refers to the possibility of repeating 13 meals during one month. I did this sort of meal planning 20+ years ago on paper that I pulled out of my budget planner. Files are included with this article.
Menu Frameworks - This article discusses Menu Frameworks. This method of meal planning is based on items that make up certain types of meals. The frameworks are behind almost every meal and what you can refer to when you are drawing a blank when you attempt to make a meal plan or when you cook without meal plans.
Meal Planning - This article suggests that you make themes for each of the days during a certain period of time and then fill in the slots with menu plans for that sort of meal on the theme days - for instance- on pasta day - cook pasta.
The Household Planner - This is about using a household planner.
Roomba - About my experience with Roomba - I've been using a Roomba since 2010.
Other Ways to Keep Track
The calendar in Microsoft Outlook (or a similar software), if you have it, can be set up for appointments and repeating events such as bills. To see the reminders, open Outlook. This works well if you open Outlook every morning.
If you have a yahoo or gmail email address then you can use their calendar to keep track of appointments and reoccurring reminders such as paying bills. The calendar can be set to email reminders to you at any email address that you choose, additionally, the calendar might be displayed on your home page provided there is a suitable add-on or widget. Google provides a syncing service for android devices.
Cell Phone or other Small Devices
Handheld devices such as PDA's, tablets, and some cell phones can be used to keep track of events.
Whatever your system, whether it is handwritten or electronic, use it. The mere existence of a system will not remind you to return your library books if you have not placed the reminder in your system.
