on this calendar.Use a plastic, hang on the wall or over the door, shoe organizer to hold pencils, tape, stapler, paper clips, envelopes, stamps etc.Keep a telephone book next to the phone so you can write in your addresses and phone numbers and look them up the way that you can identify with them.Put up a message board so everyone can check if there are messages or things to do.
