The list author says: "Every list I have seen on Amazon for people with ADHD is mostly books. I love to know other people's products and tricks that make life easier for those with this issue. Here are some of mine. I will keep adding!"
"Putting important papers in a manilla folder doesn't work for me. I have to be able to easily see what's inside. These ticket holders work great. I can keep papers together - then I write on the outside with a big dry erase marker what it relates to. Nice size holds several sheets together."
"Very useful in a house full of key losers. This particular one is good but not perfect. Kind of hard to hang. I have decided that next time I will try one of the ones that hangs on the doorknob. Also good if you have to let service people have access to your home while you are not there. You can change the code any time you want."
"I have to have clear storage boxes. If I can't see the contents, I might as well dig a grave in the backyard and store my things there. The ones with hinged lids are actually the best for me. Somehow the lids get separated from the boxes for me."
"I use this to sort the mail the minute it comes through the door. I have put labels on each box - bills to pay now, bills to pay later, school related, medical, just can't throw away, coupons, etc. Then I recycle everything else in my hands. Helps me avoid piling up the mail for weeks and having to go through a mountain to find the bills or whatever. This one is nicely made"
"I use these on all of our family phones. The family motto is "loose is lost!" and so we strap things to our bodies whenever we can. However, it has to be comfortable and convenient or else it will not work. Most of the conventional phone clips hold the phone against your body in an awkward fashion, catching on everything in sight. This allows the phone to hang flat against your body."
"I need to hang up reminders all over the place. I put these at the base of my kitchen cabinets,near the back door and a few other choice places. They are fairly inobtrusive, although at this point in time my decorating scheme takes a back seat to functionality."
"Should be called remote control leash. I attach the television remote to the end of this by using sports tape and a large flat keychain. Lots of tape but none over the buttons! I stuff the plastic part deep into the couch. Reaches all the chairs and we always know where to dig."
"Should be called earring organizer. I have one of these in my bathroom drawer. Each compartment contains one or two PAIRS of earrings. It is easy to drop them back in together when I change earrings. No digging through a pile of earrings to find a match~!"
"I don't carry a purse often (left it places too many times) but there are times when you must. I wish I was a purse designer because I could design the perfect purse for myself. This one is close. Must be crossbody for hands free and harder to leave places. Like that it is black with brown accents so no changing purses to go with a particular outfit. Dressy enough not to be embarassing."
"Hooks are good. Hooks for kids to hang their wet towels up, Hooks in the garage for sports equipment, hooks in the laundry room for things that come out of the dryer that I am not ready to fold, hooks for the dog leash. Hooks. These 3m ones are great. I write what is supposed to go on it RIGHT ON THE HOOK for my kids (and sometimes for me)."
"I work part time, wear many volunteer hats, and participate in a variety of sports. I have LOTS of totes like this one. Instead of using one and cleaning it out after every use, I have a designated tote for every activity. I keep them in a row near my back door, loaded with everything I need as I race out the door for the activity."
