The Sticky Note
One way to remember who you’ve lent books to is to write the person’s name and date on a sticky note or in your phone. This way, you will have a physical reminder of who you lent the book to and when.
This way, you can know who owns which book and when it is due back.
The excel spreadsheet
Another useful method is to create a Google sheet or an Excel document with the following information
- the name of the book
- person you lent it to
- date you loaned it
- date they are due to be returned
This way, you will always know who has your book and when it is due to be returned.
The reminder in the phone
If you are really distracted, you can also set a reminder on your phone or computer to remind you when books are due. That way, you never have to worry about forgetting to return them again.
