    My watch goes off at noon every day.  After years of missing it in the morning (like on weekends) and missing it at night (like if I fell asleep early), I’ve decided that noon is perfect.  Lunch time on weekdays and I know I’ll be up by then on the weekends!

    I take pills everyday- and take them with dinner every night. (they are not BCP- but it is daily pills!)

    When I was on the pill, I had my phone alarm set for 8pm.  It was late enough that I knew I’d be home and done with dinner, but early enough that I wouldn’t have fallen asleep already.  It always worked for me.

    I used to take mine before bed. I went to bed about the same time every night, so it became part of my nightly routine.

    I keep them in the kitchen cabinet with the coffee. Since I HAVE to have my fix every morning, I can’t forget them!

    My phone goes off at 7 am every morning. I’m a morning person so I’m always up by then.

    Mine is with my toothbrush, so I take it after I brush my teeth in the morning

    In theory, I take mine every night at 10pm.  That doesn’t usually always happen. But most times Darling Husband is the one that reminds me!  😛

    @bridetobeB:  This is a good idea about the car.

    I used to try to take it at 9 pm every night, but it would never fail that I would misss 1 pill a month because there would always be some night that I didn’t have my purse with me.

    I took mine with dinner.  No idea why, but it just worked for me.
