Today’s Tip:  Don’t forget the Memo Pad on your smart phone!
The other day I was in a cemetery and came across a headstone that I wanted to make notes about.  I grabbed at my shirt pocket and lo and behold …. my pen and trusty 3×5 cards that ALWAYS reside there … had fallen out someplace.
I retraced a few steps, but to no avail.  GONE!
I was bummed out …. I wanted to note the location in the cemetery, make a few comments about it, etc.
Then I recalled the Memo Pad on my smart phone!  I quickly opened my phone up and went to the Memo Pad there.
I began a new note and kept all the comments, etc. that I wanted while they were fresh in my mind!  Saved!
Now, I still carry those old 3×5 cards everyday.  Some habits are hard to break …. but I now make all my notes on my Memo Pad in my phone, especially since they sync to my computer when I get home, so I have them two places!  
Maybe this tip will help you out one day when you are caught short without your able pencil and pad!

    Great idea. I am sure there is one on my droid but I have never used it. I do use the camera to record things and them write them down when I get home.
