Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Keeping track of small reimbursements

Tuesday, January 25, 2011 by Andrew Conkling

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. ;)
