I have to see my entire month laid out in front of me and entire week. At work I use my outlook calendar to remind me of daily stuff but I hate using it for anything past daily.
Mine has buzzers at the end of any of the cycles. My little no frills machine has that going for it. lol I don't like the "cool down" thing at the end of my timed dry because I like pulling warm clothes out of the dryer and putting them on warm or snuggling in warm blankets.
