Tips & Tricks Tuesday: DIY with Remember The Milk

Tuesday, August 2, 2011 by Andrew Conkling

Owning a home can imply a great deal of DIY (Do It Yourself) maintenance; we've discussed work in a new home previously, but they require more ongoing work too. This week's tip, shared by dankjewelske, offers an idea for how to get a few things done at home at once.

I have been using RTM for some time now and am a huge fan of tags. I'm also a big fan of doing stuff around the house (especially when I can drill holes) and RTM is helping me with that.

Everytime I see something around the house that I can improve, or when I get a crazy creative idea, I add it to my Home list and tag it with DIY and the tool I am going to need for that particular job. Usually my diy-tasks have no due date, which means they can get a bit forgotten in my case (I keep a lot of tasks in my lists).

So whenever I grab some tool from my attic, I check in RTM if there are more walls that need holes (drill), or more things that need to be glued together (glue), etc. Since I already have the tools out, it's only a small effort to do similar tasks right away!

And I love the excuse to drill more holes ;)
