Now is the time of year that you start anticipating summer travel and guests. I thought I would share something that I like to do to make things easier when guests are coming– having a "Tourist Binder." Recently my Productivity Café friend Susan Sabo visited me and it really came in handy to show her what all there is to do here in our fair city– right, Suz?
I have a Word document that I keep on ideas for guests, and when I find a new favorite restaurant or tourist destination, I just open it and add to it. It’s printed out in a binder where I also keep things that I have saved from our local paper and magazines. There are articles in the binder like "101 Things to Do in Austin."
I also put into the binder’s pockets things like extra tickets to the IMAX theater, free parking coupons for the museums, Six Flags Fiesta Texas coupons, etc. So if you are having guests, now is a good time to start that Word document and gather your thoughts about what you like doing in your own town.
