I love my Google calendar. Not only is it great for syncing up all our family’s appointments, it’s also a wonderful way to set reminders to ourselves. Reminders for things way off in the future.
Today, I got that happy little Google calendar pop-up on my phone.
Do you know what it said?
Notes for Pesach 2012
* In dairy pots and pans tub, there is sealed, unopened Pesach food – Matzah meal x3, cake meal x1, powdered sugar x1
* Unopened cinnamon, paprika, pepper (check these before last minutes in case no longer good)
* Buy new meat silverware sorter (kept that for chol)
* Rough matzah calculation – 4 lbs/person/week = 20 lbs
These are four little reminders that I made to myself last year as I was packing up our Pesach dishes and putting them away at the end of the chag. And goodness knows, I had long since forgotten about all of them!
The funny thing is, I was just thinking that I’d need to buy some powdered sugar for Pesach – good thing I made these notes to myself!
Considering that I usually shop before I’ve fully turned over my kitchen and opened all my boxes, I probably would have bought the sugar – and then found that one in the box. These notes just saved me $2 (not to mention the other left-over, unopened goodies.)
Do you leave yourself Pesach notes? If not, it’s a great habit to get in to for this year!
