Trash Day Reminder

An evening chore reminder can be as simple as a note pinned to the last-to-turn-out light switch.

Constantly forgetting trash day can be part of the past — you just need a simple note.

I was forever forgetting to put the trash cans out on the curb on the evening before trash day. What has saved me from any more early morning garbage truck chases is a simple clothespin. I leave a labeled clothespin attached to the one light switch I must turn off before going to bed at night. Now there’s no way I can hit the pillow without remembering to hit the curb first.
