If you have trouble remembering to whom you've lent money then this week's tip, shared by chrisstreeter, shows you a way to keep track:
Whenever someone owes me money (I buy movie tickets, concert tickets, pay a house bill), I create a new task with a 1 week due date and a tag of #owe along with how much and who owes it in the title. Then, if I were to forget that person X owes me money before then, I am reminded and I can gently remind them, while postponing the due date.
This also lets me see who is notoriously late at paying back bills with the search:
tag:owe AND postponed:"> 10"
Just remember to be gentle. ;)
