Oops, I forgot!

Oops, I forgot!

Yesterday was 'I Forgot Day.'  Who knew there was such a thing?!  So befittingly I am posting this a day late! Are you a forgetful person?  Do you have trouble finding your keys?  Do you pay bills late?  Forgetfulness can cost you time, money and energy.  I've compiled a list of 10 products to help even the most forgetful folks!

Are you one of those people who need a visual reminder, like a string around your finger, to remember something?  These wrist notes are a much more colorful and stylish option.

Do you engage in brainhanding, the art of writing down reminders on your hand?  If so, these to-do tattoos are for you.  This way you'll always have your errands list handy.

Do you tend to forget your bus pass or tickets to events?  Stash them in this neat item that hangs right on your doorknob.  You'll avoid the need to make 5 more trips into the house and maybe get to where you're going on time.

Have too many things going on in your head that you think you're going to talk yourself into remembering? Stop functioning on overdrive and do a brain dump right on this dry erase talk bubble.  It's magnetic too.

Paper clips are great at keeping things together.  Why not use one of these jumbo ones to store bills that need to be mailed, your child's permission slip or the dry cleaning ticket.  All things that you shouldn't forget!

Check out this hang-up wall organizer.  It has pockets for mail and school work, a dry erase board, compartments for business cards and other storage options.  What a great tool to remember the day-to-day happenings of your household.

Are you one of those individuals who gets great ideas in the car but then forgets them by the time you reach your destination?  This car visor has a built-in notepad for scribbling ideas on the go and a compartment to store those glasses that you always seem to be losing.  


Do you tend to lose track of time, let meetings run over and forget how long your kids have been watching television?  This visual timer is the perfect solution.  And its compact size is perfect to take with you out and about.

Is it hard to keep track of your kids?  Is your child a wanderer?  Do you get so absorbed in your tasks that you forget to get a visual on their whereabouts?  This child tracker is the answer.  The bear receiver can be attached to a child's shoe or wristband and the remote can be put on your key chain.  You can hit the button on the remote to hear the bear beep to locate your missing little one. 

Here's a great lost and found app for the tech savvy.  The Tile works with iOS and Android devices and uses a Bluetooth signal up to 100 feet, making short work of locating your missing items.  Whether keys, wallet or remote, the app supports up to 8 Tiles so you're covered.
