Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Where did I put that?

Tuesday, April 17, 2012 by Andrew Conkling

It's not uncommon to misplace something. (Don't ask us how Bob can forget where he put a banana!) This week's tip, shared by pdkres, suggests keeping track of those extra-special, never-forget places where you put things so they'll be easy to find later.

I've wasted more time looking for things I put in a special place that I'm sure I'd remember. Of course I totally forget when it comes time to find them. It's frustrating and counter productive so I now use RTM to help me easily find everything I need, when I need it.

I created a tag called "where" that I use to label the items I need to find later. This works great for keys, papers, or anything you need to get your hands on without the hassle of trying to remember where you placed it. It's also really helpful if you need to retrieve something well into the future, as you can set a date to remind you, and never give it a second thought until then.

P.S. In case you haven't tried it and have an iPhone, I highly recommend setting up Siri to seamlessly enter your information into RTM.
