Favourite List Storage Devices in Random Order
I've written lists since I was a kid. I am a little superstitious and often hang on to a good list in case it comes in handy some time in the future. Therefore I have a truckload of lists. And then some.
- •Back of hand, palm, wrist, thigh at a pinch. Before sharpies this was often futile. Not good for long term storage. No good in summer or if you practice hand hygiene.
- •Cocktail napkin. But who ever understands that level of genius the next morning? Still, better keep it in case I remember what it meant.
- •Brand new journal. All that promise on those fresh clean pages. I have a tragically large collection of journals with just the first few pages used.
- •Back of a used envelope. Perfect for grocery lists. I usually have a few floating round in my handbag and it doesn't seem to matter if I use last week's list most times.
- •Dot points scribbled on a bill or some other important document I shouldn't have just written all over.
- •Some tiny scrap of torn off paper where I have to write so small that later I am clueless as to my original thoughts.
- •In the margins of textbooks or the inside covers of the latest novel I am reading.
- •Notes function on my phone or tablet. Which I then email to myself. And then forget to read and action. Or where autocorrect has rendered my list useless, yet hilarious or wildly offensive.
