Just looking for some ideas to organize christmas lists. Currently I have a memo pad category called gifts and each memo has the person's name as the title. The memo is separated by a dashed line and the items purchased are above the line and the items/ideas not purchased are below it. At one point in time I used handyshopper for this, but I found I needed to copy/paste my lists into emails so often that memo pad made more sense. I am wondering if I should just make a project out of this and make multiple next actions in the @errand category of the todo list. The problem is that I want to keep the ideas for a later time, so I don't want to check off the person's name when I have purchased one or two things for them for Christmas. Another issue I have with the memo pad is the context of the store. If I am in a sporting goods store, I have to open about 20 memos to see which people have asked for items I might find in that type of store. This is where I think it could be better organized.
On a side note - does anyone have any cool tips for creating shopping lists within the built-in apps? I use handyshopper now, but I am constantly fiddling with preferences and messing with it (perfectionism is so futile). I want something simple.
Anyone want to share?
