Remember not to forget. Create a simple system by the door to help you remember your new routine or special items you need to take with you each day:  gym shoes on gym day, violin on music day, and snacks on snack day. Hang a bin or basket by your door to corral the items you need to remember, or create a fun little “don’t forget” door hanger with a built in pocket for your daily checklist.

Door handle reminder

I made this using a Creative Imaginations Bare Elements door hanger, rub-ons and chip board arrow from American Crafts, my very favorite paper line (Romani by Basic Grey) and a storage bin label. It’s super simple to make:

  1. Cover door hanger with card stock using craft glue stick.
  2. Sand off excess card stock using sanding block.
  3. Apply rub-on letters.
  4. Cover door hanger and chip board arrow with decoupage. Let dry.
  5. Glue arrow to door hanger.
  6. Adhere storage bin label and fill with your daily reminder checklist.

Voila! Never forget gym shoes on gym day again.
