The Tickler System

Posted on 18 July 2010

The Tickler System- My favorite way to remember just about everything!

Just when it is time to relax in the summer, it is also time to
get ready for the new school year. It feels like almost everyday
I am getting another letter from the school about vaccines, uniforms, policies, registration, tuition, meetings, the school calendar, etc.

I think it is a really good time to talk about the tickler system. I LOVE to use a tickler for anything that happens on a regular basis and needs constant followup. Kind of like everyday to-dos, bills, things happening in the future, etc.

Take an index card box or a large 3 ring binder. Purchase tabs for everyday of the month and every month of the year. Next, take index cards or post it notes and write down EVERYTHING you need to take care of in the future. Such as, change air filters, send a check to, doctor appointments, you name it. Then decide which month this postit note is going to stick on or which divider you will slip the index card into.

Got it? This is a fabulous way to stay on top of birthdays, phone calls, correspondence, bill paying, really anything! I use the tickler system mainly for bills and for my Arbonne business.

And, don’t take your tickler around with you. Keep notes in your purse or enter tasks into your phone and when you get home, transfer them into your tickler system. You don’t want it to get lost.
