Warranties are very helpful: if something breaks, you can fix it! Of course, if your warranty has a renewal/inspection period, there's a lot of incentive to keep it up. This week's tip, shared by thisjones, offers a simple way to use repeating tasks to make sure you keep up your warranties!

My hubby has always been very good about getting the added warranty when investing in jewelry for me as a gift. This is great to have in case something happens to my jewelry through everyday wear, but the challenge is remembering to take my jewelry in to be inspected every 6 months to keep the warranty valid.

Thanks to Remember The Milk this isn't a problem any more! When I get a new piece of jewelry, I just enter a task due 6 months from the date that my husband purchased the piece and set it to repeat every 6 months. Instant reminders that can save me a lot of $$ and heartbreak in case something happens to my treasured pieces!
