Alarming Organisation

screen shot alarm smart phone
There are many reasons why I’m addicted to my smartphone but lately I’ve been making use of a feature I’ve been ignoring for years.

At the moment I have 9 alarms set on my phone. There are alarms reminding me to take the boys to/from playgroup, give/take medicine, tidy the living room… basically an alarm for anything I forget to do. (That is almost everything then!)

Some tips for helping the alarm system to work:

  • Don’t just set loads and hope for the best. If you set ones you don’t need you’ll just get into the habit of ignoring your phone.
  • Set different alarm tones for different things. Again, variety is what you need.
  • Get to know what feature you can use. There is almost no need to download an extra app as long as you experiment.
  • If you can, set alarms for the days you’ll need them. For example, the boys go to playgroup on the same 2 days every week. I don’t need alarms for the other 5 days.

What do you do to keep yourself organised?

  1. I really must write to praise you on this wonderfull idea I’ve always spent my life constantly disorganised and not very well time managed. I was lucky enough to have subscribed onto your blog and this popped into my in box. I have been doing this since you posted it and I have to admit my life is running a lot smoother now I’m actually getting things done instead of chasing my tail.
    One small thing I have found to improve this idea is to set different notification tones for each part of your life. For family life I have nice dancing music for work I have classical music for health and exercise I use Zuma music it works like a treat

    thanks knackered housewife will be posting this on Facebook
