Do you ever have a great idea while you’re out and about, swear to yourself you’ll remember it, then do circles around your house later wondering what that great idea was?
Or you exchange phone numbers with a cool mom at the park (scribbled on snack wrappers?) but when you want to meet up with her for a play date the next week, you can’t find that scribbled contact information? Or various other incarnations of this conundrum?
I got tired of it. So now I have a little notepad in my purse at all times, and of course something to write with. I can write down contact information, grocery list items I think of at random times, notes from meetings I attend, great ideas, and other mental mush.
Then when I get home, I can put contacts into my phone or address book, add the grocery items to my actual grocery list, type up or file any notes I want to keep, and add the great ideas to my big to do list. (More on to do lists later.)
You might use the “notes” function in your phone, or have another solution, and that’s fantastic. But if you don’t… find something that works for you today. I got my little notepad from Target for around a dollar I think. It’s not too bulky so I don’t mind it being in my purse all the time.
What’s one great idea you thought of at a really random time? Obviously this is one you HAVEN’T forgotten…
