Be careful not to forget that it#039;s 2007

Even though we have celebrated the beginning of a new year, sometimes it can take a while to get used to the new number that comes with the new year.

While we know it’s 2007, our minds will want to live in 2006 for the first few weeks.

As a result, some people will write the wrong year on important documents and have to erase it and start over again.

There are a few steps you can take to avoid this problem. These include keeping a calendar on your desk where you usually fill out bills and other important documents, keeping an eraser in your pocket that erases both graphite and ink, or using a rubber stamp with interchangeable numbers representing the day, month and year.

You might not think that you would ever make this mistake, but it’s easier to forget than you might think.

And in today’s world, where nearly everything we do is on paper, paying a little extra attention to this point could save you some trouble.
