How can I remember to service my car if I have memory problems?

Keep a large envelope in the glove compartment of your car and put receipts for new tires, oil changes, tune-ups and batteries inside. Write the dates of your last tune-up, oil change or tire rotation on the outside of the envelope so you'll know at a glance when your car is due for these services again. At the end of the year, transfer the last service dates to a new envelope and file the envelope in your automotive file by year. If you don't need records for income tax or other purposes, separate out the major repairs and warranties and discard the rest.
