Works for Me Wednesday: Remembering Appointments

Last week my husband stood somebody up for lunch. He didn't mean to; he just forgot the appointment.

The week earlier I forgot my ophthalmalogist appointment.

But the worst came when we forgot Rebecca's orthodontist appointment. We should have remembered. The little appointment card was right there on the fridge for all of us to see everytime we grabbed a snack:

There it is. March 19. 1:50 p.m. We got lunch on March 19. We grabbed milk out of the fridge. We grabbed cold cuts. But we missed the appointment.

And they charged me $55!

So we decided something had to change, and we finally broke down and bought one of those huge family calendars.

Now we write everybody's appointments on it and theoretically we're supposed to look at it every morning. Not everything is on there yet (we only just got it), but Rebecca's entered a lot.

Hopefully we won't forget anything again!

$55!? Ouch!
Hope the calendar works good. I use a monthly calendar that hangs in the hall, but I've still missed some appointments.

There are online services that mail you. It helps me.
One can be found with the calendar of Bravenet. It's free.

You are not the only one that struggles with this. I think the dentist hates me so much that I am almost too embarrassed to go in there :)

I hate it when dentists charge for missed appointments! That stinks!

Here is the calendar that sits on our fridge. It works great for us, and no one misses anything! It's similar to yours, but perpetual and color coded. I'm a bit anal like that. :)
