The library's sponsor/Queen Mum gave all staff members a funny 2018 "engagement calendar" that uses 1 page per week. There are vintage photos throughout with modern sarcastic captions. She gave a planner like this for 2017 which I've used with some success. However, the 2018 book is only 2/3 the size of the 2017 one. Since this is my desk calendar for forecasting the whole week, I think I'm probably going to miss the extra room for writing monthly goals and daily lists. We'll see.
3+7/8" x 6+1/2" x 1/8" Month-at-a-glance used to record work schedule, appointments, meeting dates. Plastic cover with front & back inside pockets which are handy for tucking a few return address labels, band-aids, etc. Combined with a PocketMod for work procedures.
Spreadsheet on my computer in my "Home" folder -- because DH has a lot of favorite meals that I repeat frequently. It's easy to cut & paste. Then grocery lists are written either on 3x5 cards (recycled from the library's old paper card catalog) or free colorful notepads that come in the mail from various charities. Grocery list goes into my purse calendar.
PANTRY & FREEZER INVENTORY:
Spreadsheet based on an old form from CEO many years ago. I have a hard copy on a clipboard in the kitchen to keep a running tally, and print a fresh blank form every few months or so to start over. TinyTown grocery store is too expensive for us to shop there every week, and Aldi/WM/Sam's are all a minimum 30 minute drive away, and longer in the winter. Keeping track of the food & supplies inventory helps me reduce the number of trips I have to make to TheBigCity.
New for 2018:
PERPETUAL CALENDAR to record family birthdays. I used to be able to remember my family's birthdays, and DMIL used to print family birthday calendars for Christmas gifts. Neither thing happens now. I'm hoping to find everyone's birth year, too, to keep track of ages.
PASSWORD LOGBOOK because I don't trust saving them on the computer, and my habit of recording passwords on cards/Post-Its/notepad papers stuck in in an envelope is getting ridiculous, especially when it comes time to change several of them at once. Modern life requires too many passwords!
