  • If you go to bed at the same time every night, keep your pills on your bedside table or next to your bedroom lamp.
  • If you eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the same time every day, keep your pills in the kitchen by the fridge or a cabinet — someplace where you will see your pill pack every day.
