    I've gotten to the age where I know I'm losing my marbles. In particular, a few times now, I've come back from running errands, and completely forgot that I had groceries in my frunk.

    With that in mind, I wrote a couple of small web sites that anyone can use that might help remind you of something when you reach home. I've made these two links as Favorites in my Tesla browser, so when I put stuff in the frunk, I might have a fighting chance at remembering I did so when I get home (assuming I leave the Tesla browser open).

    Groceries (cosmacelf.net/groceries.html)

    Reminder (cosmacelf.net/reminder.html)

    Enjoy!

    Excellent idea.

    Another simple tip: I put a small elastic bandage around my wrist as a reminder so I don't forget to do something.

    (for example, when flying a small airplane cross country, I always need to call the flight control to confirm
    that I safely landed, otherwise an alert for researches operation might be triggered,
    which might be costly for me if I forget to do so.)

    I use the reminder function on my iPhone set to trigger with a location to remind me to do things when I get home, get to work, etc. I don't think I had trouble remembering things when I was young but I can't seem to recal...

    Other idea, tying a knot in a handkerchief to remember something.

    Simple websites are a good little trick ... For Android users
    Android: Native phone interface lets you set location based reminders. "Set reminder when I get home to ..."
    Android: Google Keep app also has location based reminder notes
