PhotobucketWhy Be Frugal?

I consider frugality an art form and a religious conviction. I learned about paying cash for purchases, recycling and reusing just about everything and being generous to friends and those in need from my parents.

My faith instructs me all things are gifted by God and so I am compelled to be a good steward of my gifts. [The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to man. Psalm 115:16]

Organize me! Please!

I don't know how many times I've arrived home from work, only to remember I forgot to do something on the way home! Grrr, I can't stand that! Well . . . modern technology to the rescue!

I just read about reQall,, a free voice recognition tool that allows you to send yourself reminders! You don't need to install any software to call and use reQall. You can use reQall from any phone (including mobile phones, iPhones and BlackBerry smartphones), web browsers, AIM, Jabber, Google Talk and Yahoo Instant Messenger. Get all the details HERE.

Just call the toll-free number from your cell phone to leave yourself reminders! ReQall organizes the recordings and plays them back to you as lists of to-do items, notes and shopping items. Never forget to pick up a prescription or send an email again!

If you have a BlackBerry or iPhone, the program transcribes your messages and automatically sends you reminders via e-mail or IM.

I depend on Reqall quite a bit. But I need to make one slight correction in your statement. Reqall transcribes and emails to you regardless of what brand of phone you have. There are certain services that are only available on the Blackberry or iPhone, but most are available to all, and that includes the transcription. It's a great service!

Betsy, thanks for that clarification! I'm definitely getting this -- I definitely need it:-)
