free copy of the calendar shown above from Lemon Squeezy. Keep it posted in a spot you'll see often, like inside a cupboard door or on the wall next to your hanging calendar. 3. Since our lives are more and more managed on our cell phones, download an app like Birthday Express and enter all the birthdays you want to remember, as well as how many days in advance you'd like a reminder. Like an alarm clock, you'll have a notification pop up right on your phone! 4. Facebook has a good birthday reminder, but if you're not in the habit of checking Facebook everyday (or every five minutes), sign up for MyCaldendar Birthdays. You'll get early notifications, and you can write a birthday message in advance that will be delivered on the right day! 5. If email is your preferred mode of information, sign up for reminders from Punchbowl. Not only can you get email reminders for birthdays, anniversaries, and important dates, you can easily share information with your friends and family, which makes it easier to coordinate that group gift for Aunt Lucy.
